What time is it?

Among other things, my wife bought me a watch for Christmas. I’ve not worn a watch for about eight years, and apart from feeling a little lopsided at first, I love it. I’m still getting used to looking at my wrist instead of my mobile phone when wanting to discover the time, but that will pass.

The most amusing thing about the watch is its nighttime feature. Each of its twelve digits comes with a luminous blob that glows green in the dark. But the hour and minute hands come with no such blobs. So while I can find my watch on my nightstand in the middle of the night (via a circle of blobs), I have no means of working out where the hands are pointing. Not a feature I’m bothered about, but one that tickles me.
