How many watches do you own?
Well, I’m a very lucky guy. I sound bad, but I have a lot of watches. It’s the only thing a man can really wear. A man can’t really wear earrings, or necklaces or bracelets. Well, he can if he wants I suppose, but me, I travel with six watches at all times.
Only six because they tend to match what I wear. My wife does a great job because she picks out a watch to wear with each outfit. And I’m lucky because I represent Omega so there are some great options.
Do you have your go-to favourites for travel?
When I go away I do have my favourites, but quite honestly when I’m home, I don’t wear a watch. When I’m just around the house, I don’t wear a watch.
I did a Google image search to see if you wore one playing and sometimes you did, sometimes you didn’t.
I was the first guy actually to wear a watch playing golf.
Mm-hm, yeah. I used to wear it on my left hand, but when I would putt, and it was late in the afternoon, the setting sun would reflect off the face. The glare would be somewhere around your ball so that’s why I always switch to wear on my right hand so this side was always facing down so the sun wouldn’t cause any issues. I do enjoy watches and I’m very lucky. If I have a collection, I have a collection of watches. My wife has got them all sized down. She loves it. She probably adjusted maybe forty of my watches, so she was lucky too I suppose.
