Who needs a watch? Now that I'm retired, I'm on Southern Savings Time, where all the precision timekeeping you ever need is "now, later, this morning, this afternoon, tonight, tomorrow, next week, someday."

Fun facts to know and tell…
Clock time (as in "12 o'clock") came about in the 14th century. Before that, the day was divided into twelve hours from sunup to sundown, and the night was also twelve hours, from sundown to sunup, regardless of when sunup and sundown actually occurred. The hours were rung by bells, with the hours determined by using a pocket astrolabe to measure the angle of the sun in the sky, with each hour corresponding to 15° degrees of the sun's or a star's movement across the sky— Geoffrey Chaucer (of "Canterbury Tales" fame) once wrote instructions for using a pocket astrolabe to tell the hours of the day or night.

When clocks were invented, it became important to make a distinction between hours "of the clock" and hours "of the bells." The only time they ever agreed was at high noon and midnight.

That settles it. I gotta get a Hamilton---an original, not one of those cheap knock-offs floating around the internet. I'm not a collector, but those things are just dang cool.

Jim,

If your serious talk to Todd at Military Watch.
You may not be able to find the USMC dial but I've gotten several Elgin and Bulova A-11's from him. First rate seller.



Hamilton USMC, Hamilton Navy 1942,R88-W-800, Bulova 1943 A-11, Elgin 1944 A-11

Give him a heads up from me, he'll do a good deal.


Bob

Time Zones didn't come about until the later 19th century, when the railroads started running into problems determining what time "three o'clock" was.

oooooo....a man's wrist (with or without the watch) is a real turn-on.

Too bad the fly guy isn't here instead of the blinkin' UK. Pilots have the biggest....
watches.
