    I learned something new today...Parking meter watches

    I stumbled across these watches today. These might be old hat to some but I thought it was worth sharing. I think they work like a chrono - push the button and the 'meter' runs through from 0 to 60. It would be even better if you could add minutes to the 'meter' e.g. press the button 20 times to add 20 minutes to the meter, which then ran down to zero. But either way, I thought they were quite cool.

    Here is a "Framont" parking alarm watch which I recently acquired. (Notice the "P" at the 12 position for "Parking")

    And a little more info: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/fra...ml#post7705091
    If people know anything about it the help would be greatly appreciated! It seems to be a pretty rare movement/model and I've been having a hard time finding out more info about it.

    All of them are very interesting watches and a cool little sub culture in themselves. Who knew??

    I always think people who wear JLC watches should not care about parking fees, let alone putting it on a watch :P
