This was DH's father's pocket watch.

How about a HUGE clock? Right along a county road.

I 'watch' the ship's officers greet returning passengers after a nice day in port.

Clock and close up of bell ringing figures that ring out the time at Greenfield Village in Detroit, Michigan.

Me, wearing a Japanese watch with many functions. It will even speak to you, but only in Japanese. I bought this watch on Melrose Street, and I had to go to a special dealer in Santa Monica to get the battery replaced. They told me that this watch was not supposed to be sold in the U.S., and they had a very difficult time replacing the battery. The big white button is an air pump to put air in an air cushion to allow you to adjust for fit and comfort.

Another photo of the same watch, in a restaurant in Venice. I think it was the Firehouse Restaurant, and I am in the patio.

My turtle desk clock. I've had it 50 years. Opened the shell so often the hinge broke off.

How about some watch fobs? This is a picture of my grandparents. My mom's father (1881-1921) used these fobs. These were the only thing my mom had from her dad. I had this made and gave it to my oldest brother. He really treasured it and after he passed, it went to his son.

Sapphire around the dial I don't remember what it is on the band. It was a gift. I love but can't keep the date right

I was watching the wind blow these grasses in my local graveyard when walking the dogs today does that count?

An old watch of DH's that he never wears anymore.


Here's an old clock that's purely for decoration nowadays.
