I haven’t worn a watch for years. I actually don’t remember when I last wore a watch. I carry a PDA of some description, and I carry a cell phone, and they both serve as watches. Having a timepiece strapped to my wrist has seemed as more of an inconvenience than a convenience.
But for a while I have wanted a nice pocket watch – something that would tell me the time, but would also be classy. And, yes, perhaps a little pretentious. I bought one on eBay several years ago, and it was D.O.A. Bummer.
But, last week, my Beloved bought me a pocket watch. It is beautiful, functional, and convenient. And slightly pretentious. 🙂
