Got one by default 25 years ago. Wrote for info and the manufacturer seemed to think I wanted to become a distributor and sent me a sample. Worked for five years before it stopped shining in the dark, another couple before it packed up. Still have it but never got it fixed.Lets see what happens to these workers in 25 years.
You forgot to mention the money. Watches (WAS) are totally as bad as GAS once started. I can't hear the tone or infer your actually meaning (sarcasm, trolling, messin around, or whatever) but, personally I hate to see time passing, but I love a little expertly made machine on my wrist (just look at that Explorer a few posts back, is it possible not not admire what is going on in there?)
BTW, I sometimes grab an automatic, that has been sitting and wound down, rush out the door and forget to ever set it and still enjoy it all day
I am a nut case though. I also have a PRS but am not a great player.
That is odd. Been wearing mine nonstop for more than 5 years and it’s a rock, and I sure don’t baby it. It’s replaced my beloved Seiko Monster!
Saw the old thread so today is a “Surprise watch wearing”. My wife used to wear little quartz watches until she could no longer see ‘em. I bought her a couple of slightly bigger ones but she soon quit wearing those and I gave up. We moved into a new house last October and while trying to fit all stuff in new spaces I came upon a watch I didn’t recognize, a small Citizen quartz diver. My wife immediately thought I’d hidden a gift for my mistress—after 48 years together!!—and I racked my brain trying to remember where the mystery watch came from, then it hit me: we spend part of spring in coastal FL and she sometimes walks remote beach while I fish. She’s far from a timekeeper and might return hours later than planned so I bought her this watch. She wore it for exactly one beach walk, decided she didn’t like it so I rinsed it off and put it back in the box…4 or 5 years ago!
She wanted to try it again and now for some inexplicable reason loves it, and hasn’t taken it off since. Go figure.
I generally find wrist watches uncomfortable on my bony wrist but am also always late so I tried a Swiss titanium watch but was still always late.I’ve got a Rolex my dad bought in the 50’s. I keep it in a safe deposit box at the bank with a few other items. A buddy has been trying to buy a Rolex his whole life and gets mad at me for never wearing mine. But I absolutely hate wearing watches. There are no grandkids in the family to pass it down to, so I may just look to sell it in a few years.
