Wrist Watch Suggestion?
« on: Jun 19, 2012, 12:06 am »
I've never liked having a stop watch hanging around my neck.  Instead I've always just worn a wristwatch that has stop watch features.  My current watch is a Timex Ironman Triathlon.  It's kind of an ugly digital watch but it has a good chronograph plus a count down timer that I find to be invaluable for breaks.  Not to mention I use this count down timer when cooking and doing laundry.   

Here's my problem... like I said, it's kind of ugly.  Whenever I'm not currently doing a show I like to wear fun watches like my vintage style Mickey Mouse watch from Walt Disney World.  It's really a fashion accessory more than a tool.  But I'm lucky enough to be working more often than not now-a-days and so I'm stuck wearing the ugly watch A LOT. 

Does anyone have any suggestions of where I can find a wrist watch that doubles as a timer and stop watch that also has some character or design to it?    I might just have to break down and buy an around the neck style stop watch and wear my nice-- but less functional-- wrist watch as well.  That seems silly though. 

Thanks for you help with my silly question.  :)

I have also never liked having a stop watch hanging around my neck (I am always getting caught on things backstage.)  However, I also don't like to wear wrist watches.  So I use a clip on stop watch that attaches to my belt loop.  There are a number of them out there but another solution is to tie a neck style stop watch to your belt.  Just a possible alternative if you can't find a wrist watch that will work.
