don’t even try to out-nerd me …

| Posted in fashion, nerdly

I own an atomic watch. No, that doesn’t mean it’s extra small. Ironically, it’s a rather large watch, almost as large as a man’s watch.

The great thing about it, is that I don’t have to set it. Ever. I just have to tell it what time zone I’m in. As long as I’m in North America, it picks up the signal from Colorado, and I don’t have to do anything. Congress can mandate daylight savings to happen 100 times a year, and I don’t have to worry about setting my watch; Colorado will tell me.

I got this lovely gem for Christmas last year. And it’s wonderful, I wear it every day. Recently, however, I discovered that Casio has unveiled a new women’s atomic watch, something a little less sporty. And I hope to soon become the proud owner of not one, but two, atomic watches.

    I was recently looking at watches, because of the splendid “Other user also bought this” section on Amazon. For some reason, if you buy a lot of textbooks, they want you to buy a binary watch… but it seems that I cannae find a binary/atomic one.

    Does it know what states and portions of states don’t do dst?

    Good question – it does seem to have a lot of timezones, but I don’t know if any of those are DST-free timezones. Something to look into if I ever move to Arizona …
