Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.
For me it is important to wear a watch as I work in a place where, every 40 minutes I need to be elsewhere, I need to complete my work in a limited time.without wearing a wrist watch it is impossible for me to go on.
The day I forget to wear a watch I have to keep looking at the mobile for the time.
In some places, mobiles are not allowed, but watches are.
Some people wear them to flaunt it or for a swag ,some wear it as a necessity.
Watches came to be an instrument for knowing time only very late. Hence even before it, man was following time based on nature's changes. Even now for most of the daily uses watch is not a must. Only for certain specific purposes watch will be needed.
Now after retirement I am not using watch.
When in duty, being a teacher, I had to stick to time schedule of classes and practical. Also I had to reach my college in time as scheduled.
So one can manage with or without watch depending on the type of engagement in which one is involved.

Of course the mobile phone comes to help if I need to see watch.

Even this challenging situation would ease
In good olden days wearing a watch is a symbol of status. If you wear a very costly watch with the gold chain you are a very rich man. If you wear an ordinary watch with a leather belt you are not a rich man. I generally look at my watch only for time but not a cell. In my previous Organisation as it is not safe to wear a watch in the processing area no one used to be allowed into the processing area with a wristwatch. So I practised removing my watch after going to the office and again wear it when you start back home.
Recently by three o clock in the evening I move out from my office and came to a nearby bus stop. A drunkard young man asked me what the time was. I by calculating my starting time told him three hours and minutes. But my hand took mobile to confirm but the mobile fail to open immediately as it is a touch fone. The drunkard told me,"you have no watch, mobile also not working but saying time three five. How, are you a drunkard?'
A wrist watch has become a must in my life. I watch it for time and maintain it carefully. It is one of my close companion that I cannot part.
