Do You Wear or Carry a Watch?

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Do you wear a wrist watch?

Yes. I am a man, you see.

A child snuggled in your lap hugging your wrist to their ear as to listen to the tick tick of a watch.

That's one of your simple pleasures right there.

My mechanical Aerojet has 30 jewels and a very very quiet tick sound. My two Timex dress watches are loud enough hear without putting it to your ear. My grand daughters all like my watch addiction. My daughter bought me a watch case last Christmas with 14 slots for watches. I had it filled, but as I said I sold a couple so I am down to get a new watch or two or three...

For the longest, I had trouble finding a watch to fit. So I switched to a pocket watch for a few years.
Then I began to snoop around some jewelers with nicer watches that could obtain individual links for bands of watches they sold.
Long story short, Hudson was born 12/23/92 and Beth gave me a Citizen Promaster for my birthday on 12/25/92.
The chronograph and countdown timer don't work any more, but I have worn that watch most every day since.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal

I've tried on a few occasions to wear a watch, but just couldn't stand something on my wrist. Also tried a pocket watch and often left it due to forgetfulness in putting it back in my pocket. None of this is surprising in light of everything else I do that's similar. I take my ring off every night when I sleep. I empty my pockets when I get to work, when I get home, even when I go to a friend's house. I just don't like "stuff" being attached to me.

True story.
I stopped wearing a watch when I started backpacking in my early twenties. Back then, time ruled my life. These days, it's smart phones. I resisted the smart phone disease for years and carried a flip phone when no one carried a flip phone but eventually succumbed. Perhaps it's time for another purge.

I carry a silver half hunter on a silver chain. It has two silver fobs. One, a miniature sword, the other a diminutive chess knight. I carry my either in the front pocket of my jacket or, if I am wearing a waistcoat, in the watch pocket of that.

My daily wear is a Seiko 5, all stainless. I like not changing batteries and I like movement. hogleg recommended it. Remember hogleg?

I can't wear leather bands. My body makes them deteriorate in no time.

I remember hogleg. He posts on other forums as well.

I've got a Seiko 5. Bought it with the cloth band, but replaced that with leather. It's my everyday watch. I was wearing a Timex Expedition as my everyday/bang around, but I ended up giving it away.

I know three people quite close to me that have iwatches. Both of my parents and my best friend's wife. They all love them. I see them all the time.

Hmm... Lubbock may be a contributing factor to a lack of smart watches 'round these parts.

Could be. I admit to being curious. I like techy gadgets and there's some real Dick Tracy stuff going on here. When I can FaceTime on a watch, I suspect I will.

Mrs FredS and Daughter #3 wear apple watches. They do awesome things like counting daily steps ('cause evidently, just knowing how many steps you take each day burns calories), and vibrate when you get a text or email ('cause evidently, just knowing you've received a message is as important as knowing what the message is and responding). They also tell time, but evidently, don't help you with actually managing time or even being on time.
