NaBloPoMo: March 22, 2010 “Watch Post”
This is another post from my BlackBerry…this one is just because doing the blog from my phone is so darn COOL!
Anyway, I have a passion for wristwatches. I can’t afford some of the ones I really want, but for a poor guy, I have some nice ones. I really like the thought of having this tiny machine on my wrist; scores of moving parts driven by a very small spring and regulated by another spring that is the size of a human hair. All of that just to tell me that it’s time to get back to work…Wow! Isn’t that just fascinating? This is one of my favorite wristwatches…a Russian Poljot Chronograph. This one is manual wind and keeps excellent time. It always reminds me that my life is ticking away….five little beats per tick….. ….. …..
