But seriously, throughout this two-month circuit breaker period, the one thing that really us hit hard is the fact we can’t see our loved ones whenever and wherever we want. It’s the sort of thing many of us take for granted, innit?
Especially when we don’t live together in the same household. Well, if you do, then bully for you. For the rest of us, it’s just the same two words ad nauseam: video calls.
For all they're worth, Zoom’s great. FaceTime is great. Video calls do the job but they lack the human touch. This is why long-distance relationships never work. This is why care packs are totally slaying it right now.
Now if we do get out of the circuit breaker on 1st June as promised, FANTASTIC. But if we don’t, here’s a heads-up: Father’s Day falls on 21st June this year. So… shop early to avoid disappointment?
You don’t want to scramble at the last minute the way you did for Mother’s Day, do you?
Anyway, we’ve gone and done half the work for you with this glorious selection of beautiful men’s watches and wrist accessories. You could also shop online here. But we’re constantly adding to the list, so do check back for new stuff.
And we’ve thrown in some comedic gold for good measure. This is for all the sartorially-wristed fathers and fathers-to-be who love beautiful timepieces and are always up for a skilfully crafted joke.
Well, don’t forget Father’s Day, is all we’re saying.
Caution: No dad jokes beyond this point

“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” Jerry Seinfeld

Yesterday I spent a surreal day at @Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park California. I met Mark Zuckerberg (@zuck), I tried out the latest @oculus reality system, I screened the CCC Season Premiere episode (@jimgaffigan – posts tomorrow!) for 400 Facebook employees, and I did a Q/A with the audience in front of more than 200,000 Facebook Live viewers. Another fun and fascinating adventure for me and for CCC. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for having me for a visit and for the technology that has connected so many people to our show.
