For many years, starting when I was a teenager, I bought Timex watches. You know, take a licking and keeps on ticking.
They usually lasted ten years. Then one day I bought one, took it home and the stem came out when I tried to set the time. That was the last time I bought a Timex.
So, I bought a Bulova. It lasted 27 years. The repair shop said it would cost more to fix it than it was worth. So I bought another one - this one.
Apparently a lot of guys don't wear watches anymore but look at their cell phones. I'm so much in the habit of wearing a wristwatch it doesn't feel right not to wear one.
I figure this one should last another 27 years.
