Top Ten Reasons Why Clocks Are Better Than Watches

I hate watches. I was only half-joking when making this list. All caps this time!

The Top Ten

1 Watches Make Your Wrist Itch

Every single time I wear a watch, my wrist itches. Thankfully I'm still a kid so I don't have to be forced to wear a watch like an adult who probably has to do a lot of watch-related stuff every day. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

My wrist do itch when I have on watches.

2 Under Priced Watches Don't Work, While Under Priced Clocks Do

You either get one of those fancy, overpriced watches with a French name slapped on that always sponsor Tour dè France (sorry if I spelled it wrong), or you wait and pray that the white line on your plastic watch will not suddenly snap. Clocks that are low price work fine. I think I'm using too much sarcasm, so I'll stop here. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

3 Watches are Harder to Set

I always see watches that have a small half cylinder that's really hard to turn and it takes a million years to set. Or sometimes I see watches with big, soft, buttons that circle around the clockface, but I never want to have one of those because one accidental push could ruin a whole afternoon's work. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

4 Clocks are Easier to Read

I always find myself squinting at watches the few times I've worn them. But the one thing I cannot stand are the watch hands. It's either thinner than a needle or fatter than a hippo charm on a bracelet making it very hard to read. Most clocks have easy to read hands, and I don't squint unless they are very far away from me. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

This is how comparison lists SHOULD be done, guys! - Turkeyasylum

5 Clocks Have Been Helpful for Centuries

Early peoples used giant sundials, early clocks. Then came the prissy Victorian area when everyone had a grandfather clock, and finally Big Ben the most useful clock, (at least to people in Britan). The whole point is that clocks have been more useful, and watches don't really have a good part in history. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Watches are a Rip-off of Clocks

Just a useless miniaturization that is used to pull in more money, like M&Ms Minis. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

7 Some Watches Have Barely Readable Numbers

All those fancy ones with just little lines. Or the superfancy ones have no lines at all. However, all the clocks I've seen have at least 3, 6, 9, 12 with lines in the middle or not. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Some watches like Moldova and Gucci don’t even have any numbers on them at all!

8 Clocks are More Educational

Do you remember the first time your teacher taught you to tell time? It was probably with a clock, not a watch. Clocks have bigger numbers and tick marks (the lines inbetween the big numbers) are more suitable to teach with, plus schools cannot afford the overpriced watches that do work. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

9 Watches Get Lost and Stolen More Easily

They're so small and someone can quickly, quietly, and easily swipe it off your wrist when you aren't looking. But since only expensive watches work, you have to risk it getting stolen or buying watches continuously because they kept getting broken. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

10 Watches Can Have Too Big Straps

All the ones I've seen have straps that go almost 2 inches under people's wrist bones. Imagine what a pain that would be if you had an itch, but you couldn't scratch it because you would have to put down your watch, which is expensive, meaning that it would get stolen, so you would be forced to not scratch until you come to a place that's private. But with a clock you don't have to worry, you just hang it on a wall and only shift it when you are moving, rearranging, or cleaning. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
