    When you most need a time machine



    From Shorpy.com: Washington, D.C., circa 1920. "Selinger window, 820 F Street N.W., sale of Army wrist watches." Wristwatches, which saw widespread use during the First World War as "trench watches," were entering the mainstream as the era of the pocket watch began to wind down. National Photo glass negative.

    I would use it to go back and kick a younger me in the rear so that I got a couple of Seiko 6105 divers that were so inexpensive at the PX in the early 70's.

    Hi -

    James Lilek of the "Bleat" blog fame once asked this question.

    I told him that I would have gone back to 1969 and bought, oh, say, 1000 or so pre-professional Speedmasters.

    He didn't understand. Sigh.

    PS: I would have also told myself back then that hormones do not trump judgment. That would have saved me a lot of grief. Good lord, would that have saved me grief...

    PPS: Oh, and buy Apple and Microsoft when they go public. And when Google goes public, sell everything and buy that.

    but the hormones would have blocked that message getting to your brain anyway.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
