2002 Hamilton Khaki automatic - in rotation this week. Replaced leather bands a few times, no problems.
Older 1950's Elgin and 1980's Seiko manual wind, and a more recent auto in the rotation.
how the frig do people wear watches in the kitchen? i wouldn't even wear a cheapo timex one it would drive me nuts. i do tend to wear the blue wide rubber bands from broccolini bunches though as it's fun to pull back and let go repeatedly. the sharp pain is satisfyingly stress relieving during service.
re: burns, i have so many they just look like birth marks. and as soon as one fully heals you get another right i the same $#@$#@%#@%@# spot!!

After pouring 5 lt of boiling water on my left hand :
Giant f...n dressing done by a old grumpy nurse.
For the first time in 13 years working in kitchen I have burnt the heck out of myself. I came back to work and did the lunch service , trying not to get near the heat , got lightheaded and went home. I just took the second lot of painkillers , If I write stupid **** once they kick in please excuse me in advance
It cracks me up seeing kids these days w/o watches in the kitchen.I'm told it's not cool anymore and that cell phones are a much better means of tracking time. Hmmmm- reaching into my pocket multiple times a day (100x ish?) just to only tell time seems itiotic to me.
I've worn a watch to work for over 25 yrs and on the off day i forget to strap it on i feel utterly naked and lost. Ironicly the same feelng as forgetting my cell...
As for rocking the rubber bands- I'm sorry guys but once recces time ceases to be a part of our eagerly awaited shoolastic regimine,they gots to go. Extremely unsanitary and unsafe. (Unless you wash/rinse them regularly in which case by all means- rock the rubber around your wrist).
And yes,the same can be said for watches, but at least they tell time and date and I'm not always asking the guy next to me for this answer.
And as for the ubiquitous arm burns, try exhaling before you open/reach into the oven/PLACE protiens into the hot pan. There comes a time where you just say "seriously? That was f*ckin stupid"
just a simple Amazon online special,
POW/MIA bracelet, since 1975. Haven't worn a watch in 30 years.
