Oversized Watches

I am a firm believer that very few things in life should be done half heartedly. Timekeeping should be done boldly and elegantly. I adore oversized watches at the moment. I think that sometimes people who wear watches are perceived as more organised (a myth) so you may as well wear a chunky watch and show off your virtuous qualities (even if it's all a lie.)

My watch is quite sporty. It is a Fruitz watch by Philip Stein. It's apparently supposed to destress and help you sleep but I think that is probably just marketing bullshit. Once it gave me a rash on my wrist but that was probably because I was wearing it too tight. I do like it but would like to buy a cheap watch that is more formal. I yearn for one of the watches in this collage.

To avoid this being a pointless post about watches I have added a playlist and some quotes about time.
