Checking your text messages is fine, but a few things can substitute the easy pleasure of a shiny small button that clicks. Le Temps Suspendu has one of these if you wear one you’ll locate your finger on it a lot. So for Jean-Marc, the watch delivers a satisfying method of having to press a button and have something meaningful happen – and again.Another smart guy offered a more romantic explanation for its “poetic complication” I’ll honor him by maintaining his anonymity, but he knows who he is. In his typical confident lectatorial tone, he promptly responded to this question of “who’ll use the watch” using a simple “it’ll get you laid.” Will it today? He appeared sure enough of the simple fact that I wondered how recently the watch actually did get him put.
