I would be very grateful if anyone could identify the source of, "A man with one watch always knows the time. A man with two watches is never sure." I have heard this several times and just recently found it in a fortune cookie (unattributed). Any help would be appreciated.

A couple of sites list it as a French proverb.

It's Lee Segal.
"It is possible to own too much. A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure."
