    Do you wear a watch?

    I'm not even into watches in general BUT as some of you may know I deeply enjoy stuff that has a blocky aesthetic. 80's cars, 80's-90's PCs, classic Gundam, etc.

    I never considered wearing a watch until one day when i was 23 or 24 and i saw my friend's father's watch from 1978. It's a Seiko A-159G. A blocky as hell digital watch, pretty much the opposite of professional but if you know me at all it suits me 100%. Got one off eBay for $45 and i've worn it probably 18 hours per day since 2016. A professor offered me a Hamilton watch for $400 which is a STEAL but i just can't see myself switching to a more 'respectable' normie watch.

    In fact, the weirdness of my blocky 70's watch has helped me out a few times. It breaks the ice in interviews from time to time when someone asks about it & during my final presentation when I got my Master's degree the professor asked me about it. Laughing with someone about my goofy taste in fashion puts me at ease. Maybe they're just double checking if i'm autistic but that's cool too.

    So many people put forward the exact same facade in the professional world that it must be a bit refreshing to see someone with some individuality in the workforce, especially if it's something as harmless as a watch. It's not like i have neon blue SJW hair or anything.

    I used to wear one way back in high school. It wasn't anything special, just some cheapo one. Nowadays, I just have my cellphone which gives me the time so I just find having a watch redundant for me at this point.

    Sometimes. It's a fuck-off-big shock-resistant waterproof thing. You know, just so I'm prepared for the unlikely scenario in which I'm 300m underwater and can't stop hitting my wrists against giant boulders.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    I never liked them. I always thought they were a masculine accessory. Plus, I have no use for one considering I have a phone. I would like to get another clock locket keychain though. I had one when I was a teen. You keep it on your keys or your bag. It is useful if the phone ever dies and you don't know the time.

    Back in the day I did. Probably in my early teens I began stopping it, when smartphones came to be. I just don't find myself checking the time enough to bother. The times I do need to check (only a few times an hour, if that) I can just whip out my phone.

    I thought there might be some use in a watch when they started becoming more functional. I bought a smart watch. I wasn't bad, but the low battery life was too much hassle. I actually got an Outlaw Star watch. Quite a normal stainless steel analogue watch with a picture of Gene. Only bought it because it was less than £3. Can't go wrong for that price.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"
