Yes you will need a watch as you will have to be at different places at different times, I prefer a cheap watch for work as it can easily get broken during an incident, that being said a lot of people take decent watches in but if it gets broken I doubt the governer is going to give you £100 or however much to replace it, depends if you want to make a fashion statment or something practical.

My watch cost £4.99 from Argos as I didnt want a good watch being broken in an incident. It tells the time and thats all I need :slbg:

If i remember right, if you damage your watch in a c and r incident etcand you can put a claim in then the firm will only give you 25 pound back, wear your rolex if you wish but if it gets bust then unlucky!!!

cheap and nasty. also something small and plastic. you don't want to risk hurting yourself or a con with that big piece of metal on your wrist, they are also less likely to go for it as a target in a fight if its just some £10 casio thing.
