WATCH THIS!


WATCH THIS!

Who wears all the watches?  I don’t wear a watch.  I’ve only owned two in my life, both were gifts and I found them a pain in the neck to wear.

I understand years ago wearing a watch.  Years ago a clock was not always handy.  These days there is a clock on your TV, a clock on your car radio, a clock on your microwave, your stove, your computer and virtually anything that has power has a clock.  There is a clock on your cell phone and who goes anywhere without their cell phone?

It is Christmas time and all through the TV there are ads for watches.  Rolex, Timex, Movado, Swatch, Bulova, Seiko, Pulsar, Citizen, Coach, Rado, Gucci, Michael Kors.  The number of brands goes on and on, and each brand sells a variety of watches.  They sell watches in different sizes, colors, shapes and a variety of faces. There are dress watches, casual watches, sports watches, crazy watches, and specialty watches of all kinds.

When I walked through Macy’s the other day, I was floored by the number of watches.  There were at least three huge tables with watches on display.  There were hundreds maybe even thousands of different watches.

Who wears all these watches?  I don’t wear a watch.  Mrs. C owns one watch, a cheap thing she straps to her carryon when we travel.  I have never seen any of my children wearing a watch.  Most people I know that do wear a watch have been wearing the same watch for ten years.

I understand the smart watch; that could be pretty convenient if you are young enough to read the tiny print on the face, but otherwise they seem to me to be a pretty archaic devise.  How do so many companies stay in business making and selling watches?

Who is buying all these watches?

  1. yeah, these days if they wear anything, it's one of those fitbit watches that sync to your phone/computer and tell you your vitals and fitness progress.

  2. It ain't me. I haven't worn a watch in years. I still have several of those tiny little watches that ladies used to wear. Wouldn't do me any good these days as I wouldn't be able to see those tiny little numbers. LOL

  3. I love watches. However, I only own two....casual and dressy. I sleep with mine on and would be lost without it. I'm not that attached to my phone.

  5. I'm the oddball in the group....I've worn a watch since I was a teenager. On the rare day I leave home without mine I feel absolutely lost. I have two: a high end dressy one that I wear once in a blue moon, and an inexpensive Casio that I wear daily. The cheap one is reset automatically synced to that atomic clock in Colorado, and is powered by sunlight. How maintenance free can you get? :)

    Nowadays high end watches are status symbols, and frankly not great timepieces. I personally can't imagine paying $5K or $10K for a watch, but many posers do. I'm beyond trying to impress anyone with a symbol of my pseudo-wealth (and stupidity).

  6. I haven't worn a watch since the last one wore out, back in the seventies. I saw a man not long ago, wearing a digital watch. Digital is so unusual I commented and his wife said they are hard to find and he owns two, in case one fails. My younger granddaughter, I learned recently, cannot tell analog time.

  7. I have two, both of them Christmas gifts from years past. I alternate them.

  8. I have a Fitbit.
    It has a clock.
    most times I can find the time without looking at my wrist.
    But sometimes it's handy to be able to just look at my wrist.

  9. I have half a dozen watches in my top drawer, leftovers from when I worked in a jewelry store and could buy them dirt cheap. I asked our son recently if he wanted one and he said, What would I do with it? I have an I-phone.

  10. My son has a nice one he bought himself. Mainly for when he has an interview, or gives a presentation. It's more jewelry, I think, than a timepiece.

  11. Can't stand to wear any jewelry, not even a wedding ring, so not wearing any watches here, though I'm never late anywhere :)

    Bought a Minnie Mouse watch for son's step daughter for Christmas :)

  12. My watch is reasonably new, about a year I think, I bought it when I lost my gold watch somewhere after it fell through a hole in the pocket on my shopping trolley. I knew I had a spare at home, but I couldn't find that either, so bought the new one and found the spare a day later. I don't wear it as much as I used to, I remember years ago wearing a watch almost 24 hours a day, taking it off only to shower. My dad had a waterproof one and wore it constantly, in the shower, swimming, I don't think he ever took it off.

  13. I'm with Betty - I can't stand to wear anything fancy or frilly, so no watch for me or any other kind of jewelry. The only thing I like dangling from me is a camera.
