    Taken 2 - the quartz watch

    Just saw this movie. Most importantly found myself thinking about the watch Liam Neeson had (looked like a Hamilton to me?). He was using the ticking sound of the quartz to count how far they were being taken and retrace the path.

    I thought to my self - good thing he didn't have an automatic or a digital!

    Or of the auto hasn't been serviced in the last 5 years.

    Yeah, those pesky batteries that any auto collector will tell you die every time you need the watch and whose replacement is a far more onerous task than mailing a watch off for several hundred dollars worth of service every few years. Who came up with those silly things anyway? Pointless novelty, if you ask me.
    Guys, I really really really do understand that there was a hack and that my password was reset, but I'm about to take a year off from WUS if you can't stop telling me about it every time I log in. With my password. That you reset.

    I don't know what movement it is. I don't know what make it is. If you are looking for an ID I can tell you I don't know. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long WIS career. Skills that make me a nightmare for watches. If you ID the watch now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for the make, I will not research the movement. But if you don't ID it, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
