1. Watch acknowledgement by strangers

    Many among us believe that no one ever notices our watches. Of course, what we really mean is no one ever comments on our watches, since we have no way of knowing what others notice or don't notice. My personal experience has largely confirmed this observation. However, there have been several occasions in which a stranger has noticed and commented to me about my watch, each occasion of which took me quite by surprise.

    By far the most commented on watch I own is my Mark VIII Naval
