I've been wearing my new Seiko 5 (SKN607) all week and thinking surely somebody will notice at work. Nope, nobody mentioned anything at all (except when tell them to look at my new watch). Kind of disappointed. I don't know if you'd understand (my wife says I'm silly to think people will notice my watch). But I mean, here I am with a very shiny watch and I'm just waiting for somebody to notice.
Finally, today (Friday) somebody noticed when in my office. The simple words: "Oh, you got a new watch" was all it took. I promptly took it off and handed it to her and mentioned "it is a mechanical watch". The trouble is, I got a feeling that she didn't know what I meant by mechanical, so I told her to hold it next to her ears and listen to the tic-toc, now she gets it! Soon a 2 more people came to my office to check out my watch.
Another co-worker mentioned that he's got a Citizen eco-drive for working 5 years at this co, but I had to tell him that he's got a quartz watch, different than my mechanical. Then the best part, the first co-worker told him to hold it next to his ear and listen to it.
I'm now happier that I got noticed wearing my new watch.
Do you feel the same way?
(BTW, I recently also bought a new Caiso G-shock to replace my old g-shock, and that got noticed the very same day. So I was a bit disappointed with this Seiko, but now I'm better.)
