As an admirer of analog watches, I totally understand Christian Zeron's fascination with vintage time pieces. I got my first watch in 1966, as a birthday gift when I was in the first grade. It was a wind-up (like all watches were back then) Timex in Stainless Steel, and like Christian, I immediately felt grown up. I was tremendously proud of that watch, and the new responsibility of caring for it. I wound it religiously every day, and always placed it on the nightstand before bedtime. The little iridescence green radium painted hands and quarter hour numbers, were modern magic to my 6 year old mind. Since then, I have never liked, or worn a digital display watch. I have always preferred totally analog watches, or at bare minimum an analog face with quartz movement. I currently wear a Seiko Solar Watch, with a quartz movement, and an analog face. As the name implies, the battery is charged via a solar cell on the face of the watch. I have a small collection of vintage fully analog (wind-up) pocket watches, and actually carry one from time to time. Great episode, I'm enjoying Food For Thought very much.
