What Time Is It

What time is it? You would think I would never ask this question by the looks of this pile of lovely time pieces. Not a single one of these fine watches has a working battery in it…hanging head low. :-)
But, I imagine the bigger question here is, “why do you have so many watches Katherine?”

I worked in the medical field for several years and we could only wear two pieces of jewelry. A wedding band and a watch. Although some of the Doctors I worked with also allowed stud earrings.

Being the compliant worker bee that I was, I took full advantage of this necessary accessory. As you can see, I have several colors, shapes, sizes and  styles.

So tell me my sweet bloggy friends, how many watches do you own?

Hoping your weekend has every minute filled with happy.

    Just one – the one I wear every day.

    Interesting. I don’t use a watch anymore, I just use the cell phone.

    I own about five, but sadly don’t seem to wear them much. since I have my cell phone with the time, I kind have forgotten about my poor lonely watches!! Have a great weekend, Katherine!! :)

    Are you saying that you do not wear any watches at all, Katie, or only that you do not wear these? These are all stylish and you should get them running and get some use out of them. Mrs. Shady also works in the healthcare field and is limited to the same two articles of jewelry you mentioned. To me a woman is not properly dressed unless she is wearing a watch. Cell phones tell time but a watch makes positive and powerful statements about a person: organized, civilized, punctual, dependable, style conscious, successful, authoritative, etc. Have a wonderful weekend, dear Katie!

    I think I have two or three – none of them work and I never where a watch anymore. One belonged to John’s grandma, it’s my fav, I should get a battery in it and wear it.

    there must be a half dozen laing about but since the cell I don’t use them, be well. agman

  7. terence

    I have at least half a dozen laying around the house, but since the cell phone they are redundant. be well. agman

    I love watches and hardly ever wear one. I don’t like keeping track of time, it goes too slow. giggle

  9. Cyndi

    I haven’t used a watch in about ten years, LOL. I use my cell phone or a computer. That being said, it would be sad if watches fell into oblivion. They are such cool little gadgets.

    Hi, Katie

    I love watches and I only have two at the moment. But I have my eye on a few that I really would like to have. LOL Have a great weekend and keep warm.

    I really like wearing watches, but sometimes I forget to put one on as I head out the door….=)
    You have so many pretty watches!!
    I have about 3 watches, but only one has a working battery in it.

    Have a fabulous weekend Katherine!
    Hugs,

    I work in the medical field, too. I wear just my wedding band and a watch to work. I’ve probably got about 5 or 6 watches around the house!

  13. The Beauty Suitcase

    So cute! I honestly never wear a watch because I don’t like the feeling of them on my wrist… weird aren’t I?

    Two and one has a dead battery. An Elizabeth Taylor watch. It’s beautiful, but not that comfortable, hence no battery for many months already. Just sitting in a black velvet box with its two other face frames right besid it, peering out at that world and wishing for a new life.

  15. Missy

    I love the green watch and the one with hearts! I have a red minnie mouse watch from when I was a teenager and a black watch with a gold studded TX on the face plate, also from when I was a teen a log time ago!
    I have three working watches, one is blue with a Disney penguin on the face, and the other is a Christmas watch in the shape of a penguin (I love penguins), my third is a necklace my husband bought me for our ann. this year, it is in the shape of a hand crank sewing machine! I do need to buy a nice one I can wear to church though. LOL

  16. Melissa

    I own about eight. Watches are great accessory pieces!

  17. Theresa

    I have several watches too. Only 2 of them work though! I just never got around to replacing the batteries.

  18. Cindy

    Maybe three, but two are soooo old. I wear the same one all the time :)

  19. Marilyn

    I have several watches – Maybe someday I’ll have time to put them on :)

  20. debby

    Just two at the moment! Have a good weekend. xo

  21. Leovi

    I really like the green and gold watch, beautiful photo.

  22. Jay @craftyspices

    It’s funny, I think I have 3 but I don’t wear none. I think they do need batteries, but to be honest at this point I really don’t even know the location of any of them.

    Have a great weekend and hope you join in in the Follow Who? Social at http://www.craftyspices.com

    Hmmm… I have as many as yours or maybe more but unfortunately, I seldom wear them. I love watches, and I have in different colours, sizes and I love branded.

    Unfortunately, I got an allergy and it itches, the reason I stopped using them.

    Happy w/end.

    You have quite a collection. I have a few that I don’t wear simply because I need new batteries – ha, ha! Have an awesome weekend! BTW, I love your collection!

  25. Mary @ Redo 101

    My parents gave me a very nice watch when I graduated from high school in 1971, I still have it. At one time years ago I was offered (by a jeweler) quite a bit of money for it, but when I had it worked on recently they said no longer worth so much. But it’s worth everything to me because of the emotional attachment. That’s the only watch I own any more, I quit wearing watches when I got a cell phone. Your collection is so colorful and fun!

  26. Susie @ Homemaker-mom.com

    I own zero watches lol wish I had one! I have been using my cell phone to tell the time

  27. Naila Moon

    I have two (I think). One was given to me after the 5th year I worked for a company and the other belonged to my Grandma. None of them do I wear.

    I can’t stand them on my wrist.

  28. Rebekah

    I think I own 4 or 5, but all of the batteries are dead in mine too haha!

  29. Rosey

    I have two…one is a beautiful present from my husband that needs linked removed because it’s too big (um, it’s needed that two years, lol) and the other is just the face w/the kids names and birthstones…the strap long ago broken.

  30. Carol @arewethereyet

    I own three – one is the “everyday” watch, the “dress” watch, and one my dad gave my mom YEARS ago – only one has a battery that works and I never wear it. Isn’t it funny how something you used to wear ALL the time is just put away and never thought of again? Wonder why that is – maybe because I’m retired and don’t have to worry about what time it is? Yeah, maybe that’s it.
    Hugs!

  31. Rachel

    Huh, I never knew you couldn’t wear jewelry in the medical field. It makes sense. I like your watch collection. You should get some new batteries! :)

  32. What Jean Likes

    Lovely collection of watches Katherine!!

  33. shirley@housepitalitydesigns

    I love watches…never leave the house without one…I love mainly my casual ones…and my Brighton that I can change out the bands…love the Fossils too….but the Brighton watches seem to be my go to watches…hmm..how many?….maybe a dozen?
