So how are things around here?
My self-winding watch has stopped.
I actually have a very nice Seiko Kinetic watch, which stores the energy of movement in a tiny capacitor. Unfortunately, the capacitors have a finite lifetime. I have already replaced this capacitor once and it is apparently time to replace it again, as it will only run for about three hours when I take it off at night.
That is, if watch repair shops were an essential business.
I could *probably* figure out how to repair the watch myself -- I have watched the YouTube video on the subject -- but I would rather not kill my nice watch through ineptitude, so it is sitting on my dresser waiting for a chance to be repaired.
My wrist feels very naked.
And I keep looking at it to check the time.
Which is apparently two hairs past a freckle.
