Yes, 10:22,
Maybe it's a reminder to go prime  :)

 :) thanks, but... ye, erm... no thanks  ;)

What do you mean by "looking at lenses?"  I don't get it, you can't see the "17-55" in the viewfinder, are you staring at the front of your lens for long periods of time?  I do get what you're saying, it's like playing tetris too long and then you see the shapes in your head when you try to sleep.  I just can't figure out what part of a lens would be fun to stare at long enough for this phenomenon to occur.  The only one that seems reasonable is through the viewfinder, but you don't see "17-55" there.  Do you happen to experiment with hallucinogens?

But to answer your question, no I've never in my life seen the name of a lens on my watch.  I have seen files and folders in my head while trying to go to sleep after a long day of transferring files over and over.

Hi, no, not experimenting with hallucinogens.  ;) Also, no staring, no longer periods, and not even looking at or through lenses. I meant, that when you check the time, say on a smartphone, in the corner of your monitor while transferring those files... you will, for example, see 8:15am and it could remind you of the Canon 8-15mm that you might rather be out with taking pictures instead of transferring files.  :) And, in some countries we use 24h system so 4:35pm would be 16:35... 16-35mm L, etc.

Primes? Of course. Primes even work here in the US.

If one of the dogs gets up early I can see 5:00 on the alarm clock. Before I retired 5:00 PM was one of the best times of the day, now it's time to pull a bottle out of the wine refrig. and chill a white one or let a red warm a bit to serving temperature.

If I'm going out to shoot birds with my 500 I set the alarm for 5:00 AM. I dream about a 600 II.

I see you have it all figured out nicely :)
now you should buy the 600 II so you can sleep for another hour... though that's probably neither the causality, nor the best argument for such an investment  :)

But hey, as good as Stewbyyy's (his mind is telling him to get new UWA zoom after seeing 14:24 and 16:35 :) )... this is, at times, as a forum for anonymous lensaholics self help group :) (but that's a part of why I like this forum)

When I see 17:55 I see dinner time.  ;)

Does the L on the lens mean lunch time? ;D

Have you thought about professional help with this? (just joking...)
Do you find yourself counting how many steps from the front door to the car?
Do you sell clocks for a living?
Are you a Numerologist?
...or all of the above?

Hah! This thread is a hoot!

-PW
Is there anything wrong with counting steps? How about in stairs? It has to be an even number otherwise it's a poorly built house and might bring bad luck.
