I'm Watching You

 Nice watch, isn't it?


It is actually a giant watch! Here is Phil standing beside it to give perspective.


We saw it in the art gallery of a college art department.

Do you wear a watch? I think they are becoming a thing of the past, because most people tell the time on their cell phones now. Will cell phones make watches obsolete?

 

“Watches are so named as a reminder — if you don't watch carefully what you do with your time, it will slip away from you.”

~Terri Guillemets

 

“Time is a brisk wind, for each hour it brings something new... but who can understand and measure its sharp breath, its mystery and its design?”

Wow! That is a giant watch. I no longer wear a watch, have been relying on the cell phone when I want to see the time.

I have a few watches at home and I seldom wear them unless I go for long trips. That is a really giant watch over there!

Ann said...

Wow, that is giant. I haven't worn a watch in a very long time. Now you see people with smart watches that do way more than just tell time

I read quite a while ago that kids don't learn how to read a clock.

I wear a smart watch, but I'm glad it's not nearly as big as this one.

That's a big one!

I never wear my watch at home, but put I always put it on when I go out. I find a wristwatch a lot more convenient than checking the time on the phone when I'm out walking. Even if I do always try to remember to take the phone with me (for emergencies), I don't normally use the phone much when I'm out - except sometimes as camera, if I don't have my other camera with me. Usually it remains buried deep in my handbag.

I came here to answer your covid vaccine question. I'm supposed to get my second shot on Saturday, but I have't heard from the hospital. Last time the called. I don't have an appointment confirmed so will call them tomorrow.

I looked more at Phil than at the watch, such a nice looking man. But the watch is cool too. I never liked to wear a watch or a bracelet, so having the time on my phone works very well for me. That said, I like old clocks. There are different names for different timepieces in Sweden: clock is klocka, which is close; wrist watch was armbandsur, now probably changed to klocka as well, cause it sounds awfully ancient, but what do I know. Have you had your vaccine yet?

I just love Fine Workmanship like that.
I always wanted to do creations with wood..but alas..I never did. I love the smell of going in a lumber yard and fresh cut wood.

I like this watch very much. How nice to see Phil in the photo. I don’t wear a watch any more though I still keep my old one safely tucked away.

Jeanette said...

I have worn a watch pretty much every day of my adult life! Now I wear a iwatch which connects to my phone so I can see pretty much everything on my phone with out actually looking at my phone! Crazy! I feel naked with I don[t wear it!

Great-Granny Grandma said...

Wow, that is some enormous watch.
I still own a watch, but rarely wear it anymore.

I had not worn a wristwatch in more years than I can remember. Then I became aware in recent years of a ladies' watch by Bulova called the Rubaiyat. Since it had a poetic name and comes in many versions, some of which are quite beautiful, I picked one out and put it on my ever-changing wish list. My family bought it for me for my birthday last year and I am amazed at how much I enjoy wearing it. It's somewhat chunky so I was afraid it would interfere with my bracelets, of which I wear several. But no! It is comfortable and stylish and I just love having the time on my arm. xoxo
