Call me old-fashioned but I still prefer wearing a real watch and using my brain to remember things. Both work great and no batteries required.

What do you guys think of not wearing a watch? - Page 7post #91 of 977/6/12 at 11:24pmpost #92 of 977/7/12 at 12:24ampost #93 of 977/7/12 at 4:22ampost #94 of 977/7/12 at 5:49amLIL (and not specifically to the last thread). I'm naked without my watch and given that my manufacturing plant can be rough on attire (think potential splashes of oil on shirts & trousers), a watch gives me the ability to wear something different, sometimes better but typically unique. Since this thread has begun, I've started observing those who wear and those who don't. Quite frankly, in my small world, the results are all over the map. Not wearing a watch does not equate to being late for meetings. Wearing a watch does not equate to maturity in actions.
Damn it, it seems there is no rhyme or reason to wearing or not wearing a watch, so, can it be, just a personal preference?post #95 of 977/7/12 at 6:26ampost #96 of 977/7/12 at 7:14amQuote:
I assume you've never had to work in or visit something like an oil refinery, gas terminal, chemical works or anywhere else where there is a significant risk of explosion? Usually these places will order you to leave your phone and other electronic items at the gatehouse, in your personal locker or in your vehicle, along with things like lighters and matches.
Note the words "PROHIBITED" and "TURNED OFF". In many of these places if security catches you playing with or just checking the time with your phone, you're likely to be in very serious trouble. Same with many hospitals, especially if you're in or near intensive care, caught with a phone in your hand, you could be in trouble. I'm actually referring to the UK, but I suspect it's the same for the US.
BTW talking about China, phones must be OFF on flights here, no flight mode allowed, no argument. No watch? hope the person next to you has the correct time.

When were you last in the UK? I work for the NHS IT, we give the doctors tablet PCs to take clinical notes on, and the whole place has wireless.
That "turn your phone off in hospitals" is way old.
