Thread: Do you have any watches you use as clocks?

    Do you have any watches you use as clocks?

    In 2000 I was given a Hugo Boss on a bracelet. I don't wear bracelets, so it sat on my dresser for years.

    In the hallway of my flat my orange Swatch hangs on one of the coatpegs, my hall clock, and in the right place for my grabbing it when I go out.

    I'm now thinking of getting a pocket watch to sit by my side on my desk when I am working.
