I've never worn a watch. I always know what the time is, to within effective tolerances, so to speak, which may sound like a boast, but I don't mean it as such.

I have the same sense of time. This morning I woke and thought "It feels like 6.30", I turned and looked at the bedside clock and it was 6.28. But even so I find it useful at work to be able to glance at the watch to see how I am doing for time without interrupting things to get a phone out of my pocket. Having a rough idea is not always good enough. My favoured watch is this utilitarian design, which is about as much as I would spend on a watch: https://www.argos.co.uk/product/2513306 It is reliable, very easy to read, and it is not trying to make me look like James Bond about to dive in shark infested ocean.
