    My beat-to-hell Wenger Swiss Army watch circa 1994. It was the first watch I bought as an adult (I was 23) and I had to save up for a few months as student loans were killing my budget. It was my daily until about 2009 when I replaced it with another Swiss Army watch. This was my first tool watch and I remember being awestruck at wearing such a chunk of steel. Now of course I laugh at that.

    Is that not a Swiss Military? There is a difference.

    How'd he shovel all that mulch out and spread it around the yard so fast!

    Use a grain scoop.

    And ... take one photo the day before, shovel a bit, go indoors and look in on Omega Forums, then finish up the next day.

    Yeah, noticed the date once I reached work :)

    Here's proof (or an excuse to post one more picture of this awesome watch - granted, not the best light possible):

    Old SM chrono. Impossible for me to really catch the dial color, which is mesmerizing.

    First day on the wrist :D

    In the seller's photos the dial looked remarkably un-aged for a 20-year old watch (an early "U" serial number) so I figured it was probably fitted with a service dial in the not-too-distant past. My suspicion was further confirmed by the nicely glowing lume, despite the fact that it should only have 31% of its original luminosity based on the 12-year half-life for tritium (I own a 25 year-old Explorer 1 with tritium lume and it has zero apparent luminosity). I'm not complaining though.

    I haven't done half life calculations in a long time, but I am coming up with 33.3%. I'm using a linear extrapolation. If that is wrong, please accept my apology.

    No apology necessary :- ) I got this from Wikipedia: N(t)= (1/2)^(t/T2) where T2 is the half-life.

    It's not a linear calculation. 31.6% is the remaining half life.

    I gotta use the grey matter a little more frequently.

    No excuse needed to post that beauty although I may be slightly biased :)
