    Funniest comment someone's made about your watch?

    As we all know, everyone looks at us like madmen because we spend so much money on watches while they are content with owning one. Meanwhile, we think they're crazy for precisely the same reason.*

    What's the funniest comment(s) that someone else has made about your watch? It could be from a wife, husband, boy/girlfriend, co-worker, boss, classmate, salesman, or even a complete stranger.

    I was once sitting nonchalantly in class when my friend sitting next to me pointed at the silver side of my G-Shock and exclaimed,"DUDE! What's that, a detonator?"


    I simply replied by saying,"Don't be silly".
    Then I pointed to the red button on the other side of my watch and said,"THAT'S the detonator".


    *Paraphrased from Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
    "...[A] watch isn’t about telling the time, it is about your relationship with time. A watch is about style, a story and the history of both your watch and your own life."

    My ex-boss (who bought a Seamaster quartz because the ‘co-axial isn’t worth extra’) asked me why my Poljot was not working when I first showed it to him.

    “Oh” I replied, “what makes you say that?”

    “well the seconds hand is stopped, can’t you see?”

    “Uh, if you look at the small dial, you’ll see its working. The big seconds hand is for the chronograph”

    *blank look*

    Not really a funny, but usually when someone points to their wrist and asks, "What time is it?" I I look at my watch and say, "Its,... time for you to buy a watch."

    I received a comment the other day that was funny, but not specifically about my watch. A lady friend of mine was wearing a very small Movado watch and she said, "Hey, nice watch. Also, do you know what time it is?"

    I was at In-N-Out Burger last week and the guy next to me pointed to my Orange monster and asked "are you by chance a watch enthusiast?"

    Fun conversation ensued....
