Lee Segal on Watches

“It is possible to own too much. A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure.”
— Lee Segal

In the world of firearms there’s the phenomenon of gun owners who buy so many guns they can’t possibly shoot them all enough to know where they’ll hit. That led Elmer Keith to quip “Beware of the man with one gun. He probably knows how to shoot it.” If Keith had been a city mouse watch nerd instead of a country mouse gun nut he might have said “Beware of the man with one watch. He probably knows what time it is.”
