    Someone who changes to a dive watch to bath his kids

    Someone who takes a spare watch when he sleeps a night away from home so he can change his watch the next day

    Someone who worries about taking his 1000m rated dive watch into the deep end of the swimming pool

    Someone who when packing for a week away takes more watches than t shirts

    And yes I have done all of these
