Sometimes you just have to pull a repeat. For my birthday, I received a new watch, well actually it was a just a double of my old watch. I loved my old watch, it’s sparkly – a win in my book- and it’s loose -I can’t stand tight things around my wrist, even hair ties bother me-. The only problem with it was I had owned it for 7 years and it frankly looked like a hot mess. Stones had fallen out, enamel had chipped away, and the battery died. It did hold up pretty well considering it survived my college adventures.
I always wear my watch with the face on the inside of my wrist so I don’t damage the face, it’s a habit I picked up from my father. In this day and age, telling the time is easily done by cellphones, iPods, even Nike fuelbands, but there is something so nice about having a watch to tell the time. It’s also really good in situations where glancing at your cellphone is rude or restricted (i.e. in a boring conversation or a test). Also, watches can be a conversation piece, everyone always compliments my bracelet and are amazed when I turn over my wrist to show it as a watch.
