    I can echo those same sentiments and I have nothing to do with IT. In an age where everything is computerized and I use this iPhone that has more computing power than Apollo missions it’s nice to have something mechanical keeping time for you. I have no qualms with quartz always like to have some at the ready if I’m running late and can’t mess around setting something. One of my coworkers laughs at me for wearing a watch at all. They are no longer needed in the age of the phone that tells us everything. But I know they will all be asking me the time when the solar flare takes out all the satellites, I’ll have the last laugh.

    I think you said it all..."they're objectively better suited to the task". But somehow knowing that there's a tiny little mechanical device on your wrist thats powered by nothing more than a spring (a SPRING!!) is incredible.

    Recently acquired. Early birthday gift. "Turning 52 but feel 27." [ugh... sorry] Rose gold, but so difficult to do it any justice with an iphone at least.

    5441 Portuguese for my youngest's in-person graduation at Michigan State University. To pull this off they broke it up into about 50 mini graduations over 3 days, all outdoor, 2 guests per graduate, distancing and masks. It worked!

    Anyone looking for an Electrical Engineering fresh-out? :D
