    Got time on my hands, and it won’t wash off.

    My recollection of the early 80s is that digital watches were the hotness, not analog ones (which, as it turns out, are in fact much cooler).

    Growing up I remember a guy in my neighborhood wore a watch with a completely blank dial. No numbers or marks, just hour and minute hands. For some reason it annoyed me.

    My aunt gave me a Timex for Christmas. As a second grader, it was awesome! I cracked the crystal on a Tonka truck, broke my heart, and after that, I wouldn’t wear it but kept it in my cigar box with my other treasures. Wish I had a picture.

    I used to wear a wrist watch at work but then I started handling magnetrons. Its a vacuum tube (like the one in your microwave) for airborne radar systems. The watch has that tiny mainspring that oscillates back and forth, – through a seriously large magnetic field – and generates electricity – enough to burn out the spring. Twice before I realized.

    If you really want to confuse people use military or hospital (24 hour) time. Just tell them you’ll meet them at 1830 and watch their mental gears grind. Now that I am retired, I don’t wear a watch although I have a nice Bulova and an even nicer Seiko that I got from work for my 40 year anniversary. (For 45 years, I was much more rationale and selected a wine refrigerator.)

    Do kids nowadays know what ‘clockwise’ and ‘anti-clockwise’ are?

    Rolex doesn’t make a digital. If you own one you can probably afford someone to tell you what it says.

    i remember in the 80s my step-daughter knew the time by the digital clocks but couldn’t tell time on a watch / clock with numbers, and hands. i think kids back then had it easy…didn’t have to use their mind to tell time or figure out change on a register….both were donw for them.

    I’m embarrassed to admit that I still have this problem with analog clocks sometimes. So I won’t.
