    Occupations where a watch is a legal requirement

    So does anybody know of any occupation where having a watch is a legal requirement not just a policy of an organisation.
    In Western Australia all persons on minesites are required by state law to have a watch with the correct mine time, this is so everybody knows when the firing times are [when the explosives are fired].
    A mobile phone won't cut it, their banned underground, I think on the remote possibility they could interfere with the electrically fired detonators.
    I have been on some sites where the stores had cheap Chinese plastic digital watches if you wanted one.

    In the USA I have noticed that all commercial flight crews wear a watch.

    Not sure if it was "required" to wear it, and although it might not have been the only one, the Speedmaster was certainly the only watch certified for walking on the Moon.

    Traditionally railwaymen had to have an accurate pocket watch set to a master clock.
    My grandfather had such a timepiece but it did not come down to me.

    I am sure there are a number of jobs that require it as company policy but I am not sure it would be required by law.

    1. Scuba diving jobs (retrieving/scavenging, explosive removal, etc)
    2. Military (for missions)

    Funnily enough I used to work as train guard/emergency driver on the London underground in the mid 80s, so long ago I can't remember if it was a legal requirement or not, I always had one to check the times we arrived at the stations if we where running late though many Londoners would be skeptical to believe that we did actually did try to run to the timetable when possible, though all the stations did have platform clocks. We hated running late as it meant a late finish to the shift in some cases.

    We don’t technically have to wear a wristwatch for our missions as our radio equipment and GPS automatically sink and that’s what we use to read time so we are all signing of the same hymn sheet so to speak. Though every trooper is encouraged to wear a wrist watch for obvious reasons

    They should be required for mass transit in the US. Those folks seem to have no concept of time.
