    luckily i'm one of those time aware kind of people.. I can get within minutes per day of estimating the time... and as you point out.. phones have clocks. i havn't worn a watch in 10ys at least... besides.. when i did wear them.. they got stuck to speaker magnets.. or got caked in grease.. or the band caught and wripped on a bolt.. or lense cracked on tractor sheet metal.. gouged.. etc..

    No more rings after that, and no watches. I am not a time watcher. Besides, every cell phone has a clock on it.

    Now, if you REALLY wanted to show confidence in your marriage, you could get a tatooed ring...

    O you mean like mine? You can see on the bottom where it wore off except for one little dot

    As an office worker, I always have my ring on. The only time I take it off is for softball games and such. Mine is tungsten and black ceramic... it can't be cut off. My wife and I are both keenly aware if anything ever happens that the rings have to come off immediately so that the finger can stay..

    As much as I don't care for tat's, I think that is a better idea than wearing a ring. Especially in your profession. I have always worked around too many dangerous things through the years. Even though now I work in an office.. I just wont wear one.

    When I married, my wife understood perfectly why I couldn't wear a ring on the job or working around home......she bought me a fancy new belt buckle and said "it doesn't come off unless I'm in the room - got it?" ...yes ma-am.

    I wonder if it would protect from minor crushing because of the strength of the tungsten

    probably.. but when it did crush.. I'd be real worried. my gold one deformed under a rush and I couldn't get it off fast enough.. and it was easy to cut off with a pair of wire cutters!
