oldest watch on the road
I claim to be travelling with what is possibly the oldest watch on the road. It is a Smiths deluxe, made in England about 70 years ago. A horologist friend who serviced it for me described it as a reasonable quality working mans watch. I aquired it from work where the original owner had left it upon his retirement for anybody who wanted to wind it up, a daily task. It stopped working and was knocking around in a tool box for 5 years when I picked it up, had it serviced and now use it on my trip up through Africa, it loses about a minute a day and looks too awful to be worth nicking.
If gaffer tape doesn't fix it then you haven't used enough tape
