What watch are you wearing during the Corona shutdown?

Wearing my Tissot Carson Powermatic 80

For much of this Corona virus (Covid-19, Sars2, whatever) shutdown, I haven't worn any watch at all.  I wasn't going anywhere.  If I did, I wasn't going to get out of the car.  At most, I thought, a fast food worker might get a quick glimpse of my wrist as I clumsily maneuvered my ATM card into a terminal awkwardly mounted at a drive through window.  But, lately, I've been wearing my Tissot Carson Powermatic 80.  It's a timepiece that my wife bought me as a gift and it feels good to wear it from time to time.


Even, if we are in a shutdown, time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking, into the future.  You might as well pass the time wearing a watch you enjoy.  This Tissot watch cost a significant amount on our budget and it means alot.  It's also nice to have something "Swiss Made" in my collection.


It may be awhile before I'm fully back in the swing of things around the neighborhood, but there's no reason not to wear a nice watch.
