I talked to someone (I can't remember who, or even where, but at least I remember the conversation. Or part of it. Or the topic, at least.) this past weekend who liked to wear watches, and kept several different ones – kind of like fashion accessories, I guess. Personally, I have come to the point where the only adornment I wear is my wedding band. No watches, bracelets, or other rings. Certainly nothing around my neck, and I would look funny with one or more earrings.
I decided to round up my watches as I cleaned out my office. I was somewhat surprised to find out that I own seven of them. SEVEN.
- Citizen Hyper-Aqualand: Nice dive watch/almost-computer. This one is probably 12 years old.
- Seiko Kinetic: Never needs winding, since the motion of moving the arm does the job.
- Timex Expedition: I seem to recall getting this one before a trip a while back. Easy to read and the Indiglo would work as a flashlight in really dark conditions.
- Citizen Eco-Drive: Another non-winding, non-battery watch. Fashionable(?) to boot.
- Seiko Quartz Sports: I think this is my oldest watch. I seem to recall it from the late 80s or early 90s.
- Citizen Quartz: I think I got this because I was told I needed a dress watch. I liked it because it was so light, it almost wasn't there.
- Freestyle Shark: Found it along a trail while running. Kept it. Never wore it.
