I Ditched My Apple Watch For A Regular Watch And I Regret Nothing

I bought my stainless steel Apple Watch the first day that it was available. I was incredibly excited about it; a big new splashy technology platform from Apple! Fitness! Apps! A digital crown! What's not to like?

Sadly, this honeymoon phase didn't last very long.

While I was enamored by the gorgeous hardware design, I found myself frustrated by a battery that needed charging every day, toothless third-party apps, and a fitness data regime that centred around me pacing up and down my hallway hourly, swinging my arm around.

These flaws aside, there was one silly thing that I really enjoyed about the watch - the date and time! This revolutionary watch feature (along with my work calendar) became incredibly useful to me.

Looking back, this was the major accomplishment of my Apple Watch in 2015. It trained my stupid monkey brain to finally look down at my wrist for the time.

Speaking of, you know what is (still) terrifically unreliable on the Apple Watch? Yeah, checking the time. You do a subtle wrist turn. Nothing. You try again. Nope. Before long, you're snapping your wrist up like a French mime waiting for an imaginary bus.

It's the Onion article that writes itself: Guy With A Smartwatch Flamboyantly Checks The Time, Accidently Elbows Innocent Bystander Child In The Face.

The sad conclusion was that my favourite feature of this product made me feel like a dill every time I used it in public. So I never wanted to use it.

It was around this time that I started to look around for alternatives.

By coincidence, around the same time, Kevin Rose (remember him? the former CEO of Digg?) had left his weirdo-startup North Technologies to become the newly-minted CEO of an up and coming watch blog called Hodinkee. Not a smartwatch blog, but a traditional mechanical watch-oriented blog.

I found this quite interesting, why would a very technologically-oriented person choose to fixate on what I had always considered an antiquated piece of medieval wrist jewelry? What's going on there?

Spurred on, this started my journey of digging deeper into traditional watches.

If you're currently looking around as a watch rookie, perhaps you'll find some of these sites I used useful.

Obviously, I enjoy reading Hodinkee. Even though 95% of what they write about is outrageously out of my price range, I still liked seeing what's was around. There's also Watchville, A Blog To Watch, Worn & Wound and Watch Snob. All excellent resources for newcomers and pros alike.

For buying, I found the subreddit /r/watches immensely helpful. They have a watch FAQ, a brand guide, and a buying guide that I found very useful starting out. There I found a lot of like-minded folks seeking advice about affordable starter mechanical watches. Lengthy comment threads about brands, styles, and size were like gold to me.

Eventually, I picked up a Seiko SARB065, aka the "Cocktail Time" watch. It's a lovely 40mm watch with a sun-burst dial, a Seiko mechanical self-winding movement, has a date complication, and comes with a deployant leather strap. I picked mine up from Massdrop for just over USD $300. It's brilliant.

From a practical standpoint, I think it's quite easy to explain why I ended up gravitating toward a mechanical watch. Out of the three things I liked the most about the Apple Watch (time, date and calendar) I can do two of them with the mechanical watch, which runs forever, never buzzes, and looks fantastic on your wrist.

As popular Apple blogger Marco Arment said recently, one of the reasons I became enamoured was because a traditional watch is strikingly anti-gadget. It's not buggy. It can't restart. There are no sync issues. No tap targets. No loading spinner. As long as I keep wearing it, I never have to charge it.

As I look around me, at a constellation of other 'smart' devices, that's a very appealing quality to me. Especially for a device I strap onto my wrist every day.

I feel like I'm just getting started. Maybe in a few years I'll pick up a NOMOS. When they make one, I'll take a Tangomat 38 Datum with the new DUW 3001 movement and a crystal back, please.

So, I guess the question I'm left with -- are mechanical watches some kind of analogue hipster fad? Is this the equivalent of vinyl records for your wrist?

Well. Maybe...? I don't know. Regardless, I do like the idea of a gadget that's timeless. It won't get any better (or worse) one year, ten years, or even twenty years from now.

It strikes me that a mechanical watch isn't like a phone, or a tablet, or even a Fitbit. It's more like a sculpture, or a nice piece of furniture. It's made with care, and precision, and it's designed to be a piece of wearable art.

I think the Apple Watch is not a piece of art. It's cool, but it's a device. It will eventually date, and become obsolete, and you'll throw it in a drawer and forget about it.

For now, I think I've got enough of those kind of gadgets.

Time for something new.


    Strange. I got a Samsung Gear S2 on day one, and havent looked back. Battery life was a concern, as it would be with any electronic gadget, but I get 4 or 5 days out of it before I feel I NEED to recharge. In fact, its sitting on 40% right now after being charged Monday night. I'll probably stick it on the charger tonight, maybe tomorrow.

    Maybe I got a super battery, I dont know, but I do use it, as a filter for messages, calls, etc, plus acting as a pedometer, which I find important enough to reference a few times a day. Hell, the magic 8-ball app I have on it gets a run every day or three.

    I needed a new watch, so it was an easier decision for me, but I certainly dont regret it.

      Tizen is a crazily efficient OS, and the Gear S2 has an excellent processor and battery combo; I'm not surprised you get 5 days out of it. Most Android Wear watches and Apple Watches are a daily thing, unfortunately...

        So I picked the right option for once :) Always nice to hear.

        Hopefully they wont be all copyright gods over the bezel idea though, because that REALLY works well, and would be a great default feature for any round smartwatch.

          You did! I have an Apple watch in my drawer, and still rock the Gear S2 - it's also better looking!

      "4 or 5 days"!!! I get around three years from my watch's battery and anything less would be a massive, unacceptable PITA.

      ...and the battery will slowly die until it becomes unusable and you won't be able to replace it because it's already obsolete and it will go in the drawer or the bin. Meanwhile the article author's great grandchild will be wearing that still working and fabulous looking Seiko in 100 years.

        Heres the thing with me. I had (and still do have) a decent watch. Cost me $300 about 12 years ago, respected branding, cant remember the actual watchmaker though, would need to look at the back cover.

        Loved it, it did everything I wanted, but its broken. Not totally, it still does that time telling thing, but the buttons are seized up so I cant change the digital time, cant use the stop watch, cant set alarms and so forth. So all I had was a watch. With (admittedly an easily replacable) a battery that was replaced every 3 to 4 years.

        So wheres the benefit when a decent watch falls apart after barely a decade? Thats kinda less than 100 years.

        I wanted a new watch, and felt like I needed one, so having the spare cash to check one out, I bought a smartwatch. Why do people find that so hard to accept?

          $300 - you had a cheap watch, not even close to been decent.

            That was over a decade ago, call it $500 today for the same features. It wasnt a $10 piece from the markets, and should have survived far longer. I expect far more than that from anything I'm dropping hundreds on.

          Mechanical watches need servicing too.

            Correct, every 10 to 15 years or so, it's such a hassle........

          You're talking about 'digital time' and buttons letting you down on the 'decent' watch that you're unfavourabley comparing with a 'smartwatch'? I think you have missed the point entirely.

    I solely wear mechanical, self-winding watches and have done for a few years now. There is just something really cool about them.

      Same. A mechanical watch was standard wear for me for years and years- till last year when I got a solar powered watch and that became my new standard.
      I love my mechanical watches, my old fave is about 40 years old I think, runs great and never had a service, but they do run down if you don't wear them for long enough during the day or you're not active enough (sitting at a desk for ages). The solar powered watch doesn't care how active I am or if I wear it or not as long as it gets enough light during the day.

    I find smart watches in general a waste of time. See what I did there? All I need from a watch is to tell me the time.

      I like the pedometer on the Samsung. Being diabetic, I need to keep some sort of idea on fitness, and walking is a good basic way to be doing SOMETHING. Its also nifty to be able to just look at the wrist when the phone rings, and know whether or not you need to go fishing through the pocket for the phone.

      Small things, but surprisingly handy.

        How is the pedometer in your watch better than the one in your phone? If you are walking for exercise it's the time you spend and the pace you set, fast enough that you have enough breath to talk but not enough to sing, that's most important not the number of paces you take. i.e. A stopwatch is a far more valuable and reliable measure of your exercise than a pedometer.

          Each to their own. Firstly, I dont have a pedometer on my phone, or at least havent found it (HTC M8, not that I looked for one), and secondly, its about having a base level of exercise more than anything. 6000 steps a day is a good starting target, aiming for 10000. And the walk to work (15 mins each way, with a hill each way) does raise the heartrate enough that I wouldnt be singing. Plus another ~15 minutes at lunch.

          Dont overanalyse friend, its merely about having SOMETHING to measure, with that something being better than nothing. Its not all I do, but its a good basis to start with. So being able to even gauge something at a casual level helps me. I have no illusions its going to turn me into an ironman, far from it, but its something.

          So for ME, even a little thing like a somewhat random pedometer helps. By the way, the watch also shows when my activity is non existant, fast enough to be burning calories, or somewhere in the middle. So far today, its showing about 2 hours of mild stuff, 20 minutes of higher activity, which is about right, and 2 hours of jack chit. Still got lunch and the walk home, which will mean about 50 minutes of heart rate activity for the day.

            The m8 is actually one of the few phones available with a motion coprocessor inside!

            It has the fitbit app preinstalled, uses a negligible amount of power, and is more accurate than any wrist based tracking solution.

            It's very good.

              Yeah, bothered to look at lunch :) Still the same thing though. People get caught up in detail, and miss the main point - the watch gives convenience. I dont check every minute, but I do like the convenience of quickly looking at my wrist to see whos calling/messaging/emailing me to know if I need to drag out the phone. Its an extension of what the phone does, not a replacement, and as an extension it serves a purpose. For ME.

              It really pisses me off when people think their specific preferences and experiences are the only measure of how to do things. They arent. All I have done here is point out that for ME, there are handy benefits, and as I was in the market for a new watch, for whatever reason, it was a relevant decision at the time.

              One I dont regret.

              And that doesnt mean its for everyone, just that those were MY experiences.

              For the pedometer, its all about SOMETHING being better than NOTHING. I'll now keep an eye on the phone v watch info and see what it shows, but its not about saying "I did 6,000 steps", but knowing that even with various problems I can keep the weight off with a normal routine.

              I cant do any aerobic sport I'd be interested in, and the gym is a non event as well for other health reasons (note to others, never break your back), so something being better than nothing is relevant.

    I ditched the watch on my wrist 20 years ago and i regret nothing :)

    $300? is that USD, because the seem to sell for around AUD500-700.

    I like my Atari Breakout watch, it cost me $90, and replacing the battery every three years isn't really a hassle. I really liked the styling, I saw it online but thought it looked awful, but in the flesh it looked really great, and I needed a new watch a few years back, so I picked it up and have been wearing it since. It probably looks awful/unfashionable/doesn't suit my clothes or whatever, but it makes me smile and it feels good on my arm, and it always keeps good time.

    I like mechanical watches, but even the autowinder ones I find need winding, and I inevitably forget, and they are far from timeless, whatever the hipster movement finds attractive now, will look so out of vogue in 5 years that you probably won't keep wearing it, and will want something else. The author is already talking about probably replacing it, so it will probably have the shelf-life of a smartwatch anyway.

    Mechanical watches are kind of buggy too, they all need adjusting as they inevitably lose time after a while, the date doesn't work with leap years and has to be manually changed, and they don't handle daylight savings time, and they can and do lock-up and fail occasionally. Don't wear it for a day and it will need recharging, er, rewinding, and require the date and time to be reset as well.

      You think the appeal of mechanical watches is tied to 'hipsters'?

      Wow. Better get Switzerland on the phone.

        No, but the appeal of the watch he bought is definitely hipster chic at the moment.
        My point was that no design is 'timeless', and he is already looking at replacements for his watch, so the argument laid out that the smartwatch was something that would end up in a drawer in a few years time seemed poor, considering it looks like his mechanical watch purchase will share the same fate.

          First, I can assure you that very model has been attractive since at least 2012 and still is for me. ;D

          Secondly I thinking you are confusing "replacement" with "collection". It's not uncommon to want another mechanical watch for various reasons. I've managed to stick to two thus far.

          I think you're mistaking fashion for design. Good design, as opposed to "designed well", is timeless.

      Hello! Author here. I probably wouldn't replace/abandon this Seiko, but just add another one to the collection. Then I can have an everyday beater watch and a nice occasion, feelin' fancy-type watch.

      A mechanical watch does lose time eventually, but I don't have daylight savings to worry about. I think it's charming; I don't need it to be minute-accurate all the time.

      The first time I reset the time/date on the watch was a hassle, but now I'm familiar with how the crown pops out, I'm cool.

      Price? Yep, that $300 was in USD. Massdrop has them for around $320 right now.

      I've worn mechanical watches for years. They run down if you don't wear them long enough during the day or you're not active enough when you do, but I found a short jog was generally enough to get the hours I needed out of it till I put it on again. The date was annoying but really a silly thing to worry about when you think about it. Changing it for time zones and daylight savings was no effort.

    a fitness data regime that centred around me pacing up and down my hallway hourly, swinging my arm around.
    Really? Why? You're only cheating yourself and that's just silly.

    That's like stepping on the scales, but taking part of your weight off, so you think you weigh 10 kgs less.

      oh, I'm not walking my hallway to cheat a step count, I'm walking to eventually trigger the 'yes, i have been standing up' notice.

        Thanks for taking the time to respond, but it's still totally cheating! P:

          What! No way, that's totally legit! Watch reminds me to stand up, so I stand up and walk around until it says "Good job bro, you stood up." Totally functioning as intended (except for the part where I'm being bossed around by a watch)

            You should probably get married to that watch then. It seems to have the same grip over your life as a good woman would.

    I find wearing a watch just makes me check the time for no good reason, so I don't wear one. I have a good general sense of the time and if I need accuracy, I'll check my phone. I have a feeling that all watches are pointless. Maybe just for dudes too scared to wear a bracelet and need to hide behind functionality as an excuse to be pretty.

      No, watches are dammed bloody useful. When I started mainly working from home I stopped wearing on because I just didn't need it, but when I went back to an office job, and especially during travel I've found it massively useful. When you're out and about travelling you need to be aware of timetables and timing in general to help you get around. Watches are so much more convenient and easy to use than smartphones you have to keep charged and safe.

      i have a few watches if i had a budget would buy tons of them just love to look at them.One of my faves is a $38 mechanical and it does the time really well don't wear them all the time but i love watches.

    I found myself frustrated by a battery that needed charging every day
    Really? Not only don’t I get why this is frustrating (I take my watch off at night and charge it, like I charge my phone at night; it’s hardly a chore), but it is something that everyone knew when they decided to get an Apple Watch. Apple explained that it had a day’s worth of charge.
    As for it being hard to tell the time, I haven’t had any problems with the screen turning on when I twist my wrist even with the slightest gesture. But hey, perhaps I am just having a different experience than the writer.
    I will agree that the Apple Watch is not magical device that is leaps and bounds ahead of its time, but I still feel I got exactly what I paid for. Being able to look at notifications and deal with them quickly works a charm, and adding things like the temperature to my watch face is extremely useful.
    For me a regular watch never seemed worth it just to tell the time. I had a few over the years, but eventually they stopped being an essential part of my gear.

    Last edited 12/02/16 11:04 am

      Yeah, unless one sleeps wearing their watch, I don't see the charge issue as a biggy.

        Sleeping is the most important time for me to have my watch on. It allows me to quickly see what time it is when I wake up, so I know if I should get up or roll over and go back to sleep. And no, I don't have an alarm clock, between my phone and watch it has long been redundant.

          I charge my watch while i am having my shower, and eating breakfast (not at the same time thankfully). Can wear it through the night just fine if I wanted to

      I agree, who wears their watch to bed at night and how hard is it to sit your watch on the charger overnight? I don't have a smart watch yet, but i am a regular watch wearer and i have 4 different models. Non of them i wear to bed and if i was to have a smart watch, it wouldn't be a hassle to charge it overnight. IMHO, only stupid people don't charge it overnight and then spend the next day fretting whether or not the batter will last the rest of the day. Rant over

        I wear my watch to bed, I wear my watch all the time. Pasty white wrist line represent!

        I wear mine to work for the silent alarm - means I get woken up but not the better half.

        I have an original Pebble (kickstarter edition), works great for what it is. If I could get an analogue watch to have notifications (easier to see what people want with my head in a roof by looking at my wrist to pulling out my phone), being able to skip songs/pause without removing my phone (handy for driving/riding) and have a silent vibration alarm, I'd pick one up.

        I wear a mechanical watch to bed each and every night. I don't feel there's much reason to remove it as it doesn't bother me.

        As for a smart watch, I'm planning on getting an second gen Apple Watch. I suspect I'll wear it at night and charge it either while I'm in the shower or commuting to work and back. I think the watch will be more useful on my wrist as I sleep due to the silent alarm as opposed to while driving where I have a good phone dock anyway.

      I only take my watch off to get in the shower and I put it on again when I get out. i.e. It is only off my wrist for 10 minutes a day. Any longer and it feels strange, really strange. If I had to take it off every night to charge it, it would drive me nuts. It was annoying enough when I had to charge my phone every night, the last thing I need is something else that needs so much care and attention.

      I did charge my Apple Watch for many months this way, but I prefer to take my watch off when i get home, which meant i'd inevitably forget it, and it'd be found dead the next day. Also, I found travelling with an Apple Watch (another charger, another cord, another wall socket) frustrating. Not a dealbreaker, but just yet another minor flaw I found annoying.

      "Being able to look at notifications and deal with them quickly works a charm". Seriously? How much easier is it on a watch than the phone it's attached to? I'd suggest mostly it is no easier at all.

        *edi* never mind :) thought it was a reply to me...

        Well I disagree. A quick turn of the wrist, and a tap of the screen can deal with many notifications; no pocket delving required. I guess it depends on how much you want to do with the notification however. I still go to my phone for detailed stuff, but my watch probably takes away 80% of the other stuff

    Guy With A Smartwatch Flamboyantly Checks The Time, Accidently Elbows Innocent Bystander Child In The Face

    I have all the different platforms (I build enterprise apps for them) and I return to the Pebble Time every time for the exact same reasons mentioned above... Always on screen and 10 day battery life.

    Its what a smartwatch should be... all the data/notifications without the exaggerated "time check arm swing" and "wrist brick" if you forget to charge one night.

    I find myself gravitating towards digital watch after buying the Metal Gear watch. I know they are not fashionable but I like how they are able to present all the information I ever need on a tiny display.

    I've always worn a watch and although I can kind of see the benefits of a smart watch I still haven't seen any reason why I should get one.
    The cons seem to outweigh the pros.
    I love watches though. They really are pieces of art and add a sense of class to any outfit.
    I'm totally with you on the NOMOS as well. It's on my list as my next big ticket purchase. No idea when that will be though. Probably not for a long while. But I totally want one.
    Currently I have a Tissot I picked up when in Switzerland last year. Seemed the thing to do and It's one of the cheaper ones but I have loved it so far. Need a new strap though.

      Those NOMOS watches are soooo nice. I hear the new ones are super thin, but still self-winding. Bucket list watch for sure.

        Cant' wait to see them! I'm 40 in a few years (god where has the time gone) so maybe then. :P

          Do it man. I know there's one store in Australia (Master Watchmaking in Sydney) that stocks NOMOS. I get down to Sydney occasionally, next time I'm there I'll be paying them a visit for sure.

          Last edited 12/02/16 9:34 pm

            Awesome! Thanks for the tip! Totally didn't know there was somewhere in Sydney I could go check them out. Will definitely have to do that.

    Sticking with the fitbit charge HR. Nice basic layout, quick time telling as well as fitness information. Best of both worlds.

    I had a pebble steel, then an Asus android wear watch, and got sick of them both. They drove me back to wearing a regular watch again, which I hadn't done in years.
    Coincidentally I ended up getting the same watch as you, Seiko Cocktail time. Such an excellent watch. Grand Seiko quality for 1/10th the price. Now I'm a bit hooked, and always reading watch blogs, dreaming about what my grail watch will be. The cocktail time will last me many years. One day I plan for an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, preferably in Titanium. What a stunner it is.
    Funny that new fangled digital technology can drive you back to something old fashioned and mechanical. There's just something nice about a mechanical watch.

    In the world of smart watches at the moment, I really feel that the only smart choices are the Gear S2, anything from Pebble, or some of the fitness oriented ones like the new Fitbit, if that's what you're into. Android Wear and Apple Watch just aren't polished enough hardware or software to deliver a good experience.

      I've got the Pebble Time Steel. It's pretty great. I particularly like having a smartwatch when I'm at work and I get a phone call or message - I can briefly glance at my watch and decide whether to respond, ignore, etc.

    There are two reasons to wear a watch. Check the time or as a fashion/interest piece.

    If you only care about time and date, do yourself a favour and buy a $20 digital watch with date and time. Its more accurate than anything more expensive than it.

    If you like the fashion or mechanical aspects of it than prepare to have your wallet assaulted.

    "If you’re currently looking around as a watch rookie, perhaps you’ll find some of these sites I used useful." Really? A watch is a watch is a watch - you find the one you like the look of, that has all the features you want/need and is within your price range and you buy it. Why on Earth would you need to learn anything more about them?

    I got a watch for my 8th birthday and have worn one every day since. I simply couldn't imagine not having the time strapped to my wrist. Last year I bought a new one, just because my old one was six years old and I felt like a change. I spent $200 on a Skagen watch. They make super-slim and very stylish watches that I have sort of lusted after for a while so it is great to have one now. I still have my old one as a back-up, which is a first because I usually wear them until they die on me. I think I've only owned eight watches over nearly 50 years, they generally last pretty well.

    Why can't I just have a smart watch-band that sends fitness data to my phone/computer/the internet?

    i only recently had the desire for a wristwatch, bought myself a simple 44mm chrono by MVMT, and i love it.

    the only smart watch to tickle my fancy has been the gear s2, i like the fact its close to a traditional watch with smart features, the ability to change faces, and the longer than most battery life.

    i dont sleep with a watch on so the whole "you need to charge it daily" isnt so much of an issue for myself as i keep my watch near my keys and wallet at night and would keep the charger there.

    I'm the opposite of yourself as i feel the smartwatch is the hipster nerd thing at the moment and the analogue wristwatch is the norm. im very interested to see how the smartwatch concept develops.

      I guess I'm thinking of the whole revival of film cameras, turntables/vinyl, and other various bits of old tech making a comeback at the moment, and being remade as new products. Are mechanical watches a part of that movement, or not?

      I have no answers, but I find it interesting to think about.

        hipster is such a vague concept anyway to me. literally anything that has a digital replacement could be considered hipster, does my love for carburetors over EFI make me an engine hipster? or is using a traditional lensed telescope hipster.
        what makes a hipster a hipster in the first place.

        ugh my head hurts.

          Depends on your age. If you are old enough to have had carby engines instead of injectors, then no, but if you're 20 and think your 1985 Alfa is totes retro, then yes. :)

    I like the idea of smartwatches but I don't really see the point in having one. I recently needed to replace my old watch after 10 years and got another one very similar to it. I almost always have a watch strapped to my wrist and I think I'll always prefer a traditional watch over a smartwatch. I already have a smartphone in my pocket, I don't need something else attached to my wrist that relies on my phone to work properly anyway.

    I've been wearing watches since I was a kid. Now I have one that the battery charges by light (sunlight or even artificial light, albeit a bit slower) and so when I get stranded on a deserted island I'll know the exact time and date.

    I work in IT and last year I purchased my first automatic watch, a Victorinox Officer's automatic with day/date. I already charge a phone whenever I can, so I don't need something else with a battery to worry about. Anyway, it has made me very happy and feels like the watch for the rest of my life.

    I've wrote about this before, but smart watches in general have helped me enjoy time with my family that a mechanical watch could never help with!

    I'm required to be on call for my job, previously that required me always having my phone on me, or close to me, constantly checking it if I hadn't heard from it every 10mins or so, worried that I had missed a notification, with both the Pebble and now the Apple Watch, I've been able to get home, put my phone on charge and only react when I get a very obvious tap on the wrist, the Apple Watch took it one step further than the Pebble by letting me actually take a call / reply to an alert.

    Does everyone need a smart watch? Hell no! Am I glad they came along? Definitely!

    I'm also not going to drop ridiculous amounts of money on the higher end models until they offer more functionality than the low end ones! (Apple, please don't start doing this).
    I totally agree with people that a good mechanical watch (to which I have yet to invest in, because the smartwatch is working for me) is something that you will pass down through the generations, a smartwatch is something that will likely last 3 - 4 years, but as a tool, for me, its almost priceless!

    If companies can start adding better health features, including accurate glucose tracking, then smart watches will become invaluable tools for millions of others, but it needs to add more of these features, otherwise it is just a sidekick to a mobile!

    Same thing here, I ended up giving away my smart watch and opted for a MVMT watch.
    Best decision ever.

    Having a smart watch just did not feel right.

    Damn that Apple watch is frigging ugly compared to the analogue one. Actually, it's ugly compared to all watches be it digital or analogue. No wonder sales have stalled on them.

    "I do like the idea of a gadget that’s timeless." - sorry just had to point out the irony of this statement on an article about watches.
