    I finally found a watch that I like....and I had a similar size one to fill in just in case....but it just didn't feel right on my wrist.

    So...I searched around and found one for a good price point.

    Now...when one gets funky and smelly.....I just toss it in the cleaner and put on the back up.

    Am I the only one to do this?

    I gave up watches in HS. Been living on "Indian time" ever since. Close enough for me. ;)

    Your job must not involve meetings of mass groups.

    I love it!

    As for two watches, I have only one. The hoarder in me does see the simple genius of your system, however.

    Well, true. I don't travel at all for such anymore. My "watch" is at bottom of the screen 7.5/5. I telecommute from home since HQ is 600 miles away and they stopped paying for airfare.
    The reason I mentioned "since HS" is cause watches always died on my wrist. I just figured I was toxic. I'm sure today's time pieces would work on me, but decades without one has unlearned my need.

    I need a watch so I know when my "stories" are on. I only have one, but it's a pretty nice Hamilton.

    I sure hope you're talking about Top Gear or something on the Military Channel.

    Echo2, if you want, when you get bored here, you and I can go over to the hoarder forum and troll around.

    AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.
