I was thinking it was a good opertunity to wear the yellow fellow as well as the pocket watch



another good thing is the wedding is in a hotel not too far from where we live but as a treat to ourselves we have booked in to stop overnight so I can take another watch to wear when we go for our full english breakfast next day Very Happy

I would go for both too. Taking a pocket watch out to check the time is ok but sometimes it's handy to be able to glance at a wrist watch as well. Very Happy

you could always set the pocket watch to New York time and say you need to keep up with the Stock exchange Cool
