Quick little curiousity here.
Do you wear a watch daily? Is it jewelry or equipment?
See… in my former life as a firefighter-medic, my watch was an essential tool, and it had to have a second hand. (… and the nurses and such nod…) But the Knight and many of my friends don’t wear a watch; they simply peek at their cell phones when they want to know the time and no wall clock is in plain sight.
I’ve heard it said that watches will soon be obsolete, except purely as a fashion item. I get that… I love bracelets and always have something on each arm, generally a watch on the left and at least one bracelet on the right. However, I almost never consult my watch anymore, and I favor “dress watches” that don’t have numbers even, much less a second hand.
I guess that puts me in the fashion category, but I probably do look at the time on my wrist at least once daily…
And yeah, I love that PANK Philip Stein watch. If it came with just one “face” I’d be even more tempted to try their Frequency Technology. Anyone know anything about the claims of better sleep, less stress, etc.? (Don’t quote Oprah for me… I’ve read/heard her testimonials. I want to hear from someone I kinda’ know…)
What say you? Fashion, function or technology?
