A Fashion Watch Emergency?

Let's say you forgot to wear a watch. By the time you're at the office, your heart rate's accelerated to supersonic speed, your stomach is making acid like it's a chemistry lab, and you can't focus: The world looks like it's at the end of a long, dark tunnel.

How did I do that? What's the matter with me? Will I be able to last until I get home? 

A coworker graciously offers you his extra watch to wear for the day, but it's a Fossil, Daniel Wellington, or Michael Kors.

Do you accept his offer, go watchless for the day, or run to the nearest authorized dealer and buy a Rolex, Omega -- anything to return you to your normal, calm and happy condition?

  1. Fossil: possibly. MK: probably DW: no.
    But normal people hardly own two watches let alone keep one spare on their person. I make a point to always have a spare with in case my emergency is more drastic, like I need lume, or to calculate something with my circular slide rule, or I need to stare at the Geneva stripes on the oscillating weight whem someone starts talking about elves or videogames, or elves in video games. This also allows me to save someone else's day, and make a far grander gesture doing it.
