The Death of Time…

I’m sorry all, I’m dealing with a loss today.

At 1328 today, I mourn the passing of one of my favorite time pieces.

I was on my way into the server room and accidentally bumped (yes, bumped, not slammed, etc) my wrist on the door handle.  I heard the distinct crush of glass, looked down and found the crystal on my watch shattered.

Unfortunately, work won’t re-imburse me for the cost of it (even though over the years here I’ve ruined untold numbers of pants, shirts, ties, shoes, etc in the line of duty).

Fortunately, I only paid about $10.00 for the watch and I think the place I got it has another one.  I’ll have to swing through and double check.  Cause this will definitely be cheaper than getting another crystal for it.

  1. I’m in the same boat. The little knob that sets the time broke off of my favorite watch a couple months ago. As a result, I wasn’t able to change it over to Daylight Savings Time. It still works fine, but he’s only useful half the year.

    The real bummer is that I got loads of compliments on it…even though I bought it at Target for something like twenty dollars.

    “Wow, that’s a nice watch!”

    Thank you. It’s an Armitron.


    • Yeah. It’s a Geneva, really cool, waterproof, etc. I picked it up on clearance at Gander Mountain when I was going camping last year cause I wanted a watch that I wouldn’t be too concerned about.

      Turns out it’s one of my favorites. 😦
