Some of them are probably floating around on wrists as we speak.
My dad still has one of those really basic Casio watches from the mid/late '80s. He has nice watches too, but if he's just pottering around the house or garden, or going to the gym, he'll throw on the Casio.
Fairly expensive day today, but worth it as my house had lots of little odd jobs that needed doing so I booked in both an electrician and a plumber to come round and fix everything up. Now all done.
