I admit that I am stupidly obsessive about certain aspects of watches. With a hacking watch that will include a continual attempt to ensure the time is exactly correct and the second hand position is a true reflection of the position of the minute hand between the minute markers, including accommodating the tiny amount of lag that sometimes exists between the hand position when set and the watch movement catching up to it.
I got my first non-hacking watch a couple of months ago (Seiko SKX007) and it’s a really refreshing reminder that outside of work approximate time is all you need. Just take 5 seconds to set and (if you know your watch well enough) don’t bother to do so for another week. A couple of minutes one way or another is not going to change your life, and your phone is right there if you really need the accuracy. Maybe on a more general scale it’s a reminder to relax about a lot of things.
