Do you wear a watch? I used to wear one every day, but I have found over the last couple of years that I wear one less and less. I suppose the main reason for this is that I always have my mobile phone with me, so I can easily see what time it is if I need to know. I never made a conscious decision to stop wearing a watch, though. In fact, I really like watches, and I have about five of them. My favorite is one that I bought when I lived in Singapore. I lost it once when it was stolen from my house in Nagoya, but I got it back a few months later when the police caught the burglars.
Actually, I bought a new watch just a few months ago. It’s a “mountain” watch that has all the “ABC” features that climbers and hikers need. “ABC” stands for “altimeter” (to tell you how high you are), “barometer” (to tell you about changes in air pressure so that you will know when bad weather is coming), and “compass.” To be completely honest, though, my phone can do all of those things as well. I had wanted that watch for a few years, and I just decided to buy it as a present for myself when I got my new job.
Anyway, I was wondering whether it is just me who has stopped wearing a watch. To make this week’s topic easy for everyone, here are some questions for you to answer.
1) Do you wear a watch (a) always, (b) usually, or (c) never?
2) Would your answer have been different 10 or 20 years ago?
3) How many watches do you have?
4) Do you have a favourite watch that you only wear on special occasions?
5) Do you think people will still be wearing watches 10 years from now, or do you think they will disappear altogether?
Look forward to hearing your stories.
