It’s Micro Monday again. No podcast while I concentrate on moving/house prep.

Shall we do another roll call? The pen and paper list keeps growing. @bensmithuk inspired me to find out who the wristwatch enthusiasts are. You can’t reply with photo, but feel free to share links.

@jean ✋🏻 I don't have enough money to post on wristwatches often but I always love seeing them and learning more.

@jean Not an enthusiast but ditched watch for a Hamilton my wife gifted me for Christmas. No more taps on the wrist for me. www.ryanirelan.com/uploads/2...

@jean love my wristwatch but my Apple Watch makes it difficult to find time to wear it. I wish it was socially acceptable to wear two watches.

@jean I'm late! No doubt because I wasn't wearing my trusty men's Timex wristwatch!! I can see it without my glasses, but only if I actually put it on....

@jean count me in. I only have two -- a "daily driver" Timex Ironman and a Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 5, which I love dearly and don't wear all that often.

@annahavron I love Timex. But I also love my Apple Watch for all the useful things it does for me. (Like finding my iPhone.)

@jean I ver much want this swatch NASA watch but can’t justify because I have an Apple Watch that does so much more.

@jean Like all tools, I bought the cheapest analogue Casio wristwatch I could find, telling myself that when it broke I would upgrade, and when the upgrade broke I would upgrade again and so on. That’s why I’ve had a £2.99 plastic watch for over a decade 🙄⏰

@jean I’ve got five or six affordable wristwatches lying around, but mostly use my $14.59 SKMEI, which has big digits and they are bright sea green in the dark if you press a button. I like it a lot. I’m not sure if I qualify as an enthusiast though… ⌚️

@jean Yes! The vibrating alarm (so not to wake anyone else) and pinging my phone are my most valued features!
