This sort of fits the category, but you have to look close:

For most of my life, I wore a watch (nothing fancy, traded out over the years) on my left wrist facing out. When I moved to SW Washington, I made a very conscious decision to stop worrying about time. The day I arrived here with all of my stuff, with just a tiny bit of ceremony, I removed the watch and dropped it in a kitchen junk drawer.

It's still there today.

BTW, I don't use a cell phone to check the time, either (cells don't work well out here in the woods). When I'm home, I use a wall clock; when I'm running around town doing errands, I use the clock in my vehicle. Being watchless is wonderfully de-stressing.

Me too, the day I retired, no more watch. The car clock gets reset for DST usually a couple months after the fact.

Mr Limey is very (almost pathologically) time sensitive, so I don't think I'll ever get to take my watch off ... That, and we don't ever want to miss the boat (literally).

Yes, by then I'm not sure when I glance at it so reset to be safe.

I think this line's mostly filler.

I've got a clock that is ready for the spring forward.

As for my watch; I've got the same model of Timex Ironman Triathlon that I had in high school. The high school one died, and I got a different model (which had more functions, but had a button poorly placed for lefties). When that died, I happened upon my old standby again, and it's still going strong.

The watch even made the news (or one very like it; mine had/has orange highlights, rather than blue).
