I relied on a phone for a while but went back to wearing a watch. I was just a nicer and easier way to tell the time.I've given up, wearing a watch isn't too good for my wrists it seems.
Plus I've always got my phone with me which has the time on...
But I do like a good watch and enjoyed anachronisitically rocking one out.
It's the weight really, I think. One of the docs mentioned it but it was a pretty minor thing, along with "avoid lifting heavy steam irons" which for some reason hasn't caught on in my house.Do you mean it contributed to your RSI ? Just that i'm at a keyboard all day and its something I try to remain aware of. I guess the clasp does alter the angle your wrist rests somewhat.
i never used to wear a watch til my girl bought me a decent one which i am now never without.back in the pre-cellphone days, i always marveled at a few people i knew who never wore watches, just always asked others what time it was. i guess they led a more carefree life, not really concerned with being anyplace at any particular time (or perhaps arrogant enough to not care if they made people wait). don't see the non-timepiece types that much anymore with the boom in cellphones.
no sir, becausesomeone asks you for the time, meaning "would you mind to take your phone out so i may mug you"
I really like watches, but I'm not hard enough to wear an expensive one and they get in the way when you wank.A watch is a physical and mental shackle, handcuffing us to bablyon shitstem.
I heard that this was a cowboy thing. If the bad guys pegged you out by the limbs in the desert and left you for dead, you could signal passing aircraft using reflections from the upside-down watch on your wrist. Although I'm not sure how many cowboys had wrist watches.For some reason, it drives me up the wall when people wear a watch with the face on the inside of their wrist. Although it's funny to see the kind of limp hand-flop they have to do in order to look at it.
I'm left handed but wear it on my right cos it rattles and scrapes when I write if I wear it on my left.All about the watch on the wrong wrist. The wear it on your left wrist (assuming right-handed) never made sense to me. I don't actually have one though, so it's rather academic.
I did see a watch I liked a few months ago, and pondered investing in one for about 5 seconds until I noticed it cost £16,000. Rather killed my enthusiasm.
Um, if we're talking "golden age" cowboys, i.e. late-19th-C, I think the aircraft bit of this theory presents a more severe anachronism than the wristwatches bit.Mr. Tea wrote...
