    Skeleton in your closet...

    Okay, so we all have one, two, or more watches that have been relegated to the junk drawer, coin dish, or bottom of that box of stuff we simply cannot throw away. Maybe they were the watches we had before we got into watches...maybe they were gifts from someone who knew we liked watches. They might be 20 years old, or two weeks old, but my hunch is we all have them. So lets have a laugh and reminisce on our early forays into the world of watches....shake the dust off and let's see 'em!

    Here's my 20 year old "Nordstrom" exclusive Fossil, straight from the underside of a stack of papers behind my computer.

    For me right now it's a Poljot Aviator alarm that has a problem with the click gear that prevents the alarm spring from ratcheting and holding power. I did buy up a couple of alarm watches from Vostok when they were clearing out their old stock, so one of these days I want to swap movements between the two (assuming I can't find a watchmaker who can source a new click).

    I have this one in need of a new battery and a strap, I wonder, is there market for such a thing even if I get it in order ?

    This: a gift from my late grandma many many years ago when i was in middle school

    The movement is still somewhat running, the EL is gone and the rubber is disintegrating and no longer can serve on active duty

    With that said I did ran a marathon with it last year, but since I gotten a new Mudman it's formally retired to the watch part box.
