Organizing Watches: Some must go!

The time has come to get my watches organized.  I'm starting a new job.  My work dress code will be a little more formal.  It even looks like I'll be wearing a suit and tie more often.  I'm excited.  I'll be taking my game to a new level.  But, not every watch in my collection will be appropriate and wearable to my new office.  I've got to make some cuts.

I've placed about a dozen of my watches in a shoe box destined for Goodwill.  Some of the choices are obvious.  But, the conversations are difficult. 

Merona with decorative subdials you have to go.  I'm just not keen on non-functional subdials.  Casual observers won't know the subdials don't work.  But, I know.  It bugs me.  It's not going to work out.

Cherokee pocket watch.  The 1880s are over.  I'd look ridiculous trying to wear a quartz pocket watch.

Walmart no-name ana-digitals, you look great.  But, if I put a battery in you. I know you will beep at all the wrong times.
Pembrooke dress watch.  You look great.  But, you have a tiny dial.  People would wonder why I was wearing a "boyfriend" watch.  You need to live somewhere else.

I know it will be difficult for some of these watches.  But, you aren't getting worn now.  It will be more fair to you in the long run to find a new home where you can be worn.  Plus, you'll be helping a good cause.

At least, quartz watches don't cry.
