A few days ago it broke and I had to buy a new one. After seeing a friend with what can only be described as Big Ben on her wrist (Alison May!) I thought this might be the answer, so I walked into a local jewellers at the weekend and browsed the large dial watches.
A woman came over and asked if she could be of assistance. Yes, I said and I explained my goal and why I was looking. She asked if I had thought of an 'expander'. Had I said my wrist had suddenly gained weight over night??? I don’t think so. But I’m British, so I simply diverted her attention to the few I had noticed that might do.
The woman opened the case and lifted out a delicate watch with a tiny dial. “What about something like that?” she asked!!!
Am I speaking a foreign language? “No, I need a large dial,” I replied, very patiently, I thought.
