am I the only one here who can't stand to own a broken watch???? Other than a cheapie pocket watch, I don't own a single watch which doesn't run properly. It drives me insane to have a watch that's broken. When a watch stops running it's off to the repair shop for it. In the past year I've probably spent an equivelent of a new speedy on keeping the fleet running perfectly. Am I the only one??????

I have three non-working watches--two Wengers and a Bulova (circa 1974).

I can't find the Bulova at this moment, but I the two Wengers are here on my desk.

They're not worth fixing, but they do remind me of past decisions.

Funny you should post this. I was looking at my only quartz watch tonight (Swiss Army) and thought I should really get a new battery for it. It is perfect, though, twice a day. Maybe tomorrow...........or the next day I'll get to that battery.

I kind of the same, I would not keep a non functioning watch in a watch box, if it needs a repair it's done. If it needs a battery it's replaced. I don't recall going insane though...:scared:

The only watch I have that doesn't work perfectly is a cheap Timex. It runs, but it's not reliable. It will keep perfect time for days, then all of a sudden it will stop for a half hour or so. I don't know why I don't throw it out. I can't stand a watch that doesn't keep perfect time. I guess all those ads I saw as a kid, "Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking", well, can't believe everything you hear. :mad:

And I like your avatar.:thumbup1:
Some may find it square and at the same time, a thin blue line.
Welcome to the forum and if I can ever be of "help", let me know.:wink:[/QUOT

Thanks Brother, I'll keep that in mind. You understand the avatar. When I'm not in the East, I'm chasing bad guys. Just got back from an Inspection far, far, away. Wore a nice gold Omega dress watch, and my 32ND degree SR ring. Take care......
