I do not agree with what you wrote. In every wordOf course you have to know what time it is. In some situations you have to know. But the second doesn't matter. Where do you need the seconds? Unless you're an athlete and want to know your time from the last run. But you don't do that with a normal wristwatch. When was the last time you wanted to know the exact time? It has nothing to do with where you live, the time is important to be able to orient yourself in a day. But you don't need the second for this orientation. You could also go forward and say you would have to see hundredths and thousandths of a second on a watch. Then you can see the time go by even more. Or doesn't it make you nervous when you watch the time go by while you are watching a Sports event and hope your favorite will make it in a faster time?
