Horological Meandering: Two each an inexpensive vintage watch.

And then I got them serviced by mail. Result: after much back-and-forth mailing, one runs poorly, the other not at all. That's where the matter rests, as I am not willing to mail them back and forth any more. Discouraging. I could probably get a better result by sending them to a fancy watch restore

TimeOut: Impressive, but what is the record?

Horological Meandering: C, although the "active" ones are barely B.

I count 6 watches that get regular wear, plus another 8 that are a combination of (a) relatively formal watches I just don't get a chance to wear and (b) backup watches in cases in which I have found it appropriate to have a duplicate or approximate duplicate of a watch. Of those other 8, many have

Independents: In fairness, those bezel screws look functional.

As opposed to hexagonal heads with decorative slots.

Photography: It has become so profoundly a part of our civilization

that it is easy to forget what a groundbreaking act of vision it was when originally made.
