I might start wearing a watch again.  Might.  It's getting a bit inconvenient to be frequently groping for my phone in order to tell the time.  Primary criteria:

  • Analog.
  • No strappy tight feeling.  Some watches feel strappy and tight even when loose.  They feel sticky or stuck.  This is difficult to describe.
  • Hands-free operation.  This means no dial cover, no dangling off my wrist, no any other feature that would necessitate use of my other hand.
  • Not likely to make my wrist sweaty.
  • Not likely to cover up my tattoo.
  • Easy to read.
  • Suitable to wear to work and nice occasions.
  • Silvery looking metals.  Actual sterling is probably out if it's a nickel alloy.  I have reason to believe I'm allergic.

This is probably going to mean a cuff bracelet watch.  Front runners look like these:



Found one that was absolutely perfect, but I sat on it too long and they sold out.
