No, no... you’re doing it all wrong.
You were supposed to gawk and stare. And bask in the mesmerizing intricacies of turn-of-the-century watchmaking. And then see where the big hand and little hand are.
Here, allow us to demonstrate:
Get your wrists ready for The DoughBoy Watch Company, a new one-man timepiecing enterprise turning antique pocket watches into fully functional, fully beautiful wristwatches, online now.
Quick history lesson: back in World War I, soldiers fastened pocket watches to their wrists after discovering that having two free hands made staying alive easier. And a hundred or so years later: this guy in Philadelphia decides to do the same thing. Which brings us to today, when you discover that wearing a 113-year-old gold-plated timekeeping device makes looking at your wrist more interesting than ever.
It goes like this. He scours flea markets, auctions and estate sales for the most gorgeous art-deco-style pocket watches out there. He cleans them. Repairs them. Whispers sweet nothings into their movements. And then he slaps a nice leather strap on ’em and puts them on the Internet. Whereupon you procure yourself a 1920s nickel-cased one and begin answering questions about Jazz Age horological craftsmanship.
Or the time of day, depending on who’s asking.
