    Watch required for your job?

    I was wondering if anyone has a job that requires a watch. I noticed nurses aren't even wearing watches since pulse and heart rate is done electronically. The last "job" I had that required me to have one was refereeing my kids soccer game. Hardly a job.

    So does anyone have a "real" job that requires a watch?

    I used to work as a divemaster. That requires a watch. Even though most of the time relied on my dive computor.

    I assume any job with a lot of public speaking. Professors and lecturers use watches because pulling a phone out to check the time is a no no, and squinting to finding a clock that is legible/correct looks funny.

    ABSOLUTELY!! At least a few too. You never know when one will fail.

    I have a union gig that gives us a half hour lunch (not including last man)...

    So I need a diver with a bezel to time my lunch. Wouldn't want to be caught in the middle of dessert and hear that we're in. Nothing but a SubC would suffice as they can stand up to a lot (but you never know, it just may fail...).

    I wish my company even allowed me to wear a watch.

    It's silly, since I work in an office environment, but a legible watch is definitely an unofficial requirement.
    Whether it's running a meeting or doing a presentation - I need to keep track of elapsed\remaining time so that I can adjust content and timing accordingly. Pulling out a cellphone is not an option and most meeting rooms don't have wall clocks.

    I guess a watch has moved to the realm of jewelry where I work. All conference rooms have wall clocks and their time is the only time that counts. This way there is no argument if someone is late. And we always designate someone to keep the meeting minutes and time using their laptop.

    I give most of my presentations with PowerPoint the time is displayed for everybody on the bottom corner of the display.

    I'm glad to see patrol guides, and dive masters without a computer still need a watch but, it seems like the days of going out and buying or better yet being issued a watch for work are over.

    I might buy a Ball watch so I can think back to the days when a watch was essential in keeping people safe.
