Watches for the Move

This blog isn't moving, but we are.  It's time to pack up and physically move across town.  Our current county government decided to give a local sports team about half a billion dollars to build a stadium near our current apartment.  Since we have no desire to add game traffic to our commuting woes, we're moving across town to another county. We just can't live in a county with the biggest welfare queens of all time.  We won't mention any names...ahem...Atlanta Braves!

Now, almost all of my watches are boxed up.  But, I still have a few out.  A couple for work and a couple for the move.  This pre-scratched vintage Timex Easy Reader was an obvious choice for banging around and moving boxes.  I put a very comfortable velcro strap on it and it rocks.

This blog might be a little intermittent for the next few weeks, but I'll try to post when I have the chance!

FMD Watch of Mystery

I have too many watches.  I know this because I have watches of unknown origin.  For example, I'll dub this watch:  the FMD watch of mystery.  I found it buried in my watch boxes.

Where did it come from? The exact origins of the FMD watch of mystery are unknown.  I probably got it at Target, Kohls or Walmart.  It may have even come from Kmart, but don't tell anyone.

How do you know it is FMD?  It says FMD on the case back.  It also says that it has a Japanese movement, a stainless steel case back, and a base metal bezel.

Overall impression.  The imitation leather strap on this watch is a little stiff.  But, the style of this watch is quite cool.  I'll keep it around for awhile!
