英文: Timepieces

I got a watch from one of my friends.  It’s a very eccentric analogue watch that is handcrafted in Japan.  It has a brass case and bezel.  It is a wind up.  It has a transparent dial and back, so the movement is visible. You can see the wheels spinning as time goes by.  It reminds me of steampunk.  Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction.  It’s a mix of future technology and old design and technology.  For example steam trains that hover and cowboys who have laser guns.

The only other interesting watch I have is a limited edition blue G-Shock that has 5 classic rock songs as alarms.  I woke up to classic rock every morning.  It is fully digital, has a calendar and a stopwatch.  I had a habit of timing everything.  I timed how long it took to get from my home to school.  It is also very tough.  I used to throw it on my desk when I got home.  

Most people wear the same kind of watch. I think it’s nice to wear something a little unusual that doesn’t stand out too much.  Watches are a good way of expressing yourself without going over the top.   Although there will always be trends and new technology, I think that watches are timeless.
