Ask the MB: Pocket Watches

Ask the MB: Pocket Watches
Q: What's you take on pocket watches? Are they MB approved or should I be looking for a new timepiece?
--James


A: If you have a time machine and can go back to the 1800s, OK. Otherwise, they're too evocative of wallet chains. Or even worse, you might be mistaken for a Civil War reenactor.
