It frankly seems that you need a reality check. Yes, that's what most people do. Personal experiences are not identical; your reality is not everyone else's. Just because you need a watch, does not mean everyone else does. Watches are not the primary means of telling time for the vast majority of people. Even with your go-go jet-setter life, keeping your electronic devices should not be difficult. I worked in plenty of places that had iffy electricity and I managed to keep my cell phone and netbook from dying.
...that paragraph was not intended to be hostile, please don't interpret it that way.
I am not saying that not one person on Earth uses a watch, just that most don't. And how many people that have chronographs, GMTs, diving watches actually use them for those purposes vs their aesthetic qualities?
