    BBC Radio programme on watches, 08.2015

    There's a 12 minute radio show on the why of why we wear watches here: BBC Radio 4 - The Why Factor, The Watch

    Why do we wear watches and why do we need more than one? Oh, I guess we could talk and talk and talk about the purpose of having a watch at all. In my case, it's just that I can't walk out of my house without a watch on my wrist- it would be as uncomfortable as if it were the pants, not the watch, that I have forgotten. It just feels horrible, you know. The necessity of wearing a watch is just a part of me. Why more than one watch? Dunno...OCD? "More watches, more watches, more watches..."
    As to the programme itself... If someone would have said to me "If you ask about the price, you can't afford it", I would consider such a person an arrogant swine. Yes, that kind of people probably tries to impress the customer, but in my opinion they just unwillingly do their best to earn the reputation of a boor.
    I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.
