One of the changes in the new Health Codes for the state of Georgia include not being able to have fingernails, not that it bothers me, as well as wearing no jewelry on your hands or arms other than a plain gold wedding band. It’s to help cut down on transmission of food poisoning. Even if you wash your hands regularly germs get on jewelry or can be trapped between watch bands and the skin as well. It kind of sucks because it means I have stopped wearing my watch altogether. I like my Mickey Mouse watch particularly, although lately I have had my eyes on a Lange Sohne like this one.
As often as I work it’s almost foolish for me to get another watch now. Luckily I always have my cell phone with me and I can check the time from it.
