    In early 1988, I picked up my steel Pulsar P3 Date Command -not working- for $20 from my watchmaker friend Eddie Lee. It was my second Pulsar, and my second repair attempt. I got it working and wore it a lot.

    I guess you had to be there. A New Year's party to remember for a lot of reasons, but this watch has become my official New Year's Eve watch every year since then, and will be again this year.

    cool story cool watch
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...
