I don’t wear a watch – who needs a watch? Your phone tells the time, and it’s in your pocket. Also my wrists are a little on the slim (oh alright, skinny) side and so watches look dumb on me.
I’ve never worn a watch and never wanted to. Obviously this means that a while ago (my version of a while is somewhere between one week and five years) I got a watch.
A vintange Orient SK Worldtime mechanical watch.
I got it because it was “new old stock” which means that it’s quite old, circa 1970 but was found and was therefor brand new. So a brand new, 45 year old watch, what could go wrong? First up, what went wrong is the metal strap pulled all the hairs out of my arm, which hurts, so I replaced with a fabric strap. Oh, and it’s mechanical, which means you take it off and a bit of time later it stops, so next time you put it on, it is wrong
Other than that, I like it I guess.
God this is boring, why did I start writing this?!
