    Well, its not a watch. It is a sweet travel alarm clock, 20s-30s Paris, from eBay. It keeps amazingly accurate time (as long as you wind it every day.)

    I was actually thinking about getting similar or a vintage travel one. I’m also horny for a vintage ship clock. For my watchmaking area:taunt:

    If you still have the 2015 model check if it's illegible for a battery replacement under a recall that was issued about a year ago, I had mine replaced (free of charge) and it works like the day I first turned it on!

    There is also one for keyboards. The interesting thing is that they change the entire top case, so you're getting a lot of new parts regardless of the reason.

    The Vostok clocks, made for the Soviet/Russian Navy, have 12-jewel escapements and keep pretty good time for what they are. I have one that I will send out to get serviced once I get another full-time job.

    I like oils and am have some originals up, but it’s nice to change things up depending on the lighting, occasion, mood, season, etc. The kids enjoy seeing the different painting images as well, hopefully keeps them interested in the subject.

    We have the Roomba one which I can highly highly recommend. Tried the Dyson one and it wasn't so good.

    Vintage travel wallet with an Omega logo - not sure they were ever from 'our' brand but works for me.
