From the other end of the horological spectrum...

Back in 1990, I ordered some gift watches for my client base.  I recall having about 50 of these made up to give to my top accounts for Christmas.  My clients loved them.

I came across this last one in a box the other day.  I popped in a new battery and off she went, ticking away.

What gets me is that after all this time (30 years), a "no-jewel" plastic quartz movement still operates with no maintenance other than battery changes.  

Surely, we all have others like this laying around.  Let's see them!

All the best...
