I was working with my boss last night and the subject of watches came up.
A Tourneau commercial came on t.v. (yes, we have DirectTv at work) and it showed a person showing some very expensive watches while wearing cotton gloves.
I was wearing my GW-9000A Mudman and he was wearing a no-name digital, I think he said he bought it at WallyWorld. It was a Casio look-a-like with a velcro strap.
Anyway, he stated that he doesn't understand how anyone could buy expensive watches and mentioned that all he needs is the time and when the battery goes, so does the watch (in the trash). Apparently, he gets his money's worth because batteries last a very long time.
I heard it mentioned about people who throw away digital watches but I never met a person that did, until last night!
