I am very fond of watches and own some 35 of them -- some are perfect for a formal evening, while some are casual enough to be worn on badminton courts too. I got my first watch four years ago. It's athletic and at the same time, very uncommon.
When I was a child, I always wanted to wear a watch, but our school never let us. There was this golden watch that my mom had picked up while on a holiday, which I totally loved.
Once we had a fancy dress competition in our school, and I made it a point to borrow it from her then. So, despite the fact that the watch wasn't fitting in the theme of my costume, I flaunted it the entire day in school.
