Default How a Watch Works: New and Old

According to Seiko, 2017.

According to Hamilton, 1949.
For me watch collecting is a diversion from troubling existential thoughts. It is obvious that we are engaged in a murder suicide pact with the other species on our planet. The climate disasters have begun to occur on an upward acceleration curve. As they become more frequent, leading to crop failures, mass migrations, military conflicts etc. our inedible watch collections won't mean much.

All I can do is try to live a decent life of kindness and generosity.
