    Finally pried the new Tudor GMT off my wrist. It’s Tuesday, after all.

    This 111 year old survivor was rescued from a bin of hopeless case, donor watches, and future prospects wherein it had reposed for over 50 years. It needed a balance staff, foot-hole jewel, mainspring, glass, second hand, reconditioning, and a better case. Decades ago, the former owner seemingly decided not to bother fixing it, so it was retired. In my stash, I had everything I needed to resurrect an otherwise hopeless case, and turn it into the 1911 vintage Elgin, 18-size, 15-jewel artifact in the picture. In the picture, this watch is shown to be 6 seconds fast, after 4 days since last re-set. Worn 12-hours daily, resting face up 12-hours daily, it is 6 seconds fast! It is keeping better than railroad time, and it is not a railroad standard watch! It is better than many of my railroad standard pocket watches, accuracy-wise. It is on my @DaveK mystery lanyard, and currently in my pocket.

    Some shots from Explorations this past weekend at Point Reyes National Seashore (about an hour by car north of San Francisco)...

    The entrance road to the last functioning Shore-to-Ship telegraph station on Earth...

    ...we happened to be there when the station was transmitting morse code messages by radio (done only one day per week)

    ...an array of radio antennas, some dating back to the 1920s
