Re-post: The Watchismo Times, a blog about unusual, vintage wristwatches of the 1950s-1980s

News: Business Week reports on a new survey by Seiko that indicates that ownership of wrist watches has fallen from 70% in 1997 to only 46% today. Why? People use their mobiles to tell the time these days

I am away on a short vacation to China at the moment. This post had been pre-blogged for your enjoyment

I quit wearing a watch in 1993 when my night table digital clock starting waking me up every night three or four times with 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 11:11. It did that for years and now it does it on a maintenance schedule. I think it's my angel. Who needs a watch when you have an angel. His name is Alpha.
