    I think that's the average score. Just how hard the quiz is I don't know - I chose questions that I knew the answers to so they seemed easy enough to me, but they would because I wrote em.

    "Not so bad" is not so good considering how much time I spend on watch forums. :-(

    62% #14 is dodgy, since there are crowing rooster complication watches available. And then there's #20.....

    Fun quiz in general, though!
