The advent of the Apple Watch and its many imitators and competitors changed this considerably. And yes, for those who detest massive wrist-lumps and have no desire to wear a device that includes the “smartwatch” features, the Casio G-shock is, and likely shall remain, the obvious utilitarian choice.
@werehatrack When I wore a watch regularly, I liked the Casios. But the bands self-destructed too soon and I never found replacements that were much better. I eventually gave up on wearing a watch all the time and haven’t had one in years - clocks are ubiquitous anyway. (But I can still see the mark on my left wrist where one or another watch resided for 50 years.)
My dad was old school, he always wore a watch. You have your daytime work watch and then your more dressy one for those special occasions.
He was always a pretty classy guy and well dressed, a handsome watch and bracelet was his signature look!
It’s only been 2.5 weeks without him and jeez do I miss him!
@mnhoscar I have multiple watches, including a few that need daily winding. I don’t wear one every day, but I do use them regularly enough to make it worthwhile keeping them. I find them particularly useful when traveling across time zones.
This video really has aged like spoiled milk, huh? Too bad @matthew isn’t here to make Glen eat his words.
For reference, the first Apple Watch came out on April 24, 2015, after a winter’s worth of anticipation (or derision) from having been announced in October 2014. This video was originally released on March 18, 2015.
