Why You Should Read This: This story is so good, it’s hard to know where to start and I don’t want to give anything away. If you’re a fan of John Watson, you’ll like this. I promise. Just read it. Really.
John Watson owns two watches. One is analogue, the band leather. The other is digital, a circle of metal around his wrist. Except to shower, he never removes them. There is a system to his watches, to the tan lines at the ends of his sleeves, but a careful observer would say he only wears the one.
A careful observer would be wrong.
