Own up, who else wears two watches?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking this practice must me fairly standard for rep enthusiasts...you've always got a watch which is new to your stable but you don't yet know how accurate it is. You have to give it a fair chance by wearing it,  because body temperature.   And you want to check it many times a day against whatever watch you rely on to be accurate...so you have to wear them both. This has to go on for a few days, then you can judge the new watch. But if you have a DH Gate habit there'll always be a backlog of watches needing some exercise.

So 'fess up. Show me some double wristshots. Preferably without Mickey Mouse in them.

I hope nobody here wears two at the same time. It seems like a silly thing to do, like those people who wear 15 case scratching bracelets with their watch

Well, I'm kind of in that boat.

I wear my proper watches on the left wrist (only one at a time, of course. I rotate on the daily),  and I have an Apple watch on my right. Hidden underneath my clothes. It's nice to have. It records my physical data, and I get notifications right on my arm, instead of fishing up my phone. Nice feature during meetings, when it's inappropriate to reach for the phone.

 

Saw a guy on the airport lounge once. German guy I think. He wore two giant wristwatches, one on each arm. I almost spat my beer.

If I remember correctly Charles Manson was obsessed with time and even stopped a clock in the courtroom by just glaring at it.....

I bet he wore at least 2 at a time...........  :borg:  :Devil:

I don't trust airports I always travel wearing my watches... no fucks given by me or by airport security or customs.

I find that I tend to bash the one on my right wrist, I s'pose because I'm right handed or I'm not used to it, or both. Or maybe it's because the one on my right wrist is a couple of centimetres thick. (It's a DH Gate approximation of a Patek 5002).

Maradona's excuse is that when  he's travelling he wants watches for local and home time. Which was good news for the Italian tax authorities - when Maradona was visiting and they seized his Rolex, they found he was wearing two of them. So they took them both.

Does anyone know Che's reasoning? Maybe when he was traipsing around in the forest he got in the habit of wearing all his wealth...a bit like some cultures in Asia where all the family money goes into gold jewellery worn by the matriarch. Maybe it's the  most practical s solution if you have no bank account  and you live in a hut. Putting your money under the mattress is not much use if your home is made of mud and has no door.
