Bringing Dead Watches Back to Life!

Greetings!  If one thing should scare a watch collector this Halloween, it's dead watches!  I have lots of them lying quietly in their crypts.  They wait.  They wait for me to raise them from the dead and let them tick again.  Here are some of my favorite watches that lie dead:  stilled by the lack of a battery!

This diver-style watch has long been one of my favorites.  But, for now, it lies still in the darkness of my watch box.  One day, I will get a battery and my Caravelle by Bulova will tick again!  At $59, Caravelle by Bulova Men's 45B35 Rubber Strap Black Dial Watchis a great deal!

Another favorite watch that currently lies quiet is my Structure Military-Style Watch.  I thought it would soldier on for a long time, but instead it haunts my watch box!

Finally, this Halloween, one of my favorite silver-on-silver watches lies shining in the night like a psycho's butcher knife.  Once it has a battery, it will try to possess my soul.

All these dead watches are pretty creepy.  But, soon they will be alive!  I'll have to get batteries soon so that they can surround me with their a quiet tick-tock, tick-tock, for ever more in the silent middle of the night. 

Happy Halloween!
