    Well, I appreciate it at least. While sulking around the house and hiding from the kids, I stumbled across a watch I haven’t worn for quite a while. I remembered I had a spare blue-ish strap and thought I’d give it a spin. It’s a great piece, well balanced and the right size. If I’m not mistaken, the Chrono function was originally designed to aid in the proper cooking of chicken.

    Indeed, its full title was the "Gruen Poultry Precision," but it was too long to print on the dial. Most afficiandos just refer to it as the "Chicken Chrono." I have a Le Jour designed along the same lines, but for soft-boiled eggs.

    And with those scales on the outer dial, you can also measure how fast the chicken is moving and the distance of a thunderstorm from your chicken.

    The geniuses at Gruen thought of everything. Amazing.
