About six years ago I stopped wearing a wristwatch because I was fed up of the slight discomofort of doing so. In any case, I decided I could use my mobile phone (or any one of the many clocks which surround one on a daily basis).
In fact, that left me unable to see what time it was when my mobile was switched off. (And, a bit like a watched kettle never boiling – switching on one’s phone in a hurry seems to take an age).
So I hit upon a solution.
A pocket watch.
For a few quid on Amazon I picked up an excellent pocket watch, with a chain to attach it to my belt loop.
I have used it on a daily basis for the last year or so and it is a godsend.
