Do you remember the day you got your very first watch and in every photo thereafter, you have to make sure everybody could see it? Yep, this was, I think, my very first watch. I mean, I have no idea, actually. But of all the old photos I’ve been through, these are the oldest of “me and my new watch”.
I love the fact that a watch (can’t imagine it was all that expensive) was the most exciting present you could wish for. Fast forward a few decades, teaching teenagers, and I can count on one hand how many of them I’ve met who wore a watch.
And… even if they had one…
Well, it couldn’t beat this one, could it? 😉
