Seven Years of Typewriters / Wristwatches



Even the box/desk stand is stylish!
This is how I display the watch.
Warranty card, complete with punched-out section!
The plainest back, ever. No country of origin mentioned, though I'm guessing either Hong Kong or the Phillipines.
The watch face in all its glory.

The indestructible Casio G-Shock DW5600E, wrist shot.
The Casio "Duro" MDV106 dive watch, with an aftermarket NATO strap.

  1. I remember well y our early posts. It's nice to see you maturing and growing. Regarding long-term interest in typewriter blogging, what I've done is often to typecast about things other than typewriters. As in, using the typewriter for its intended purpose, to write. So you can blog about almost any other subject, but do so using a combination of typewritten and word processed text. Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. I understand typewriter wane. I sometimes wonder about my typewriters and blog. It is so easy to write about a new machine and more difficult to find a different subject. Collecting watches can be fun. Old analog watches and clocks have a specialness about them digital ones do not. First a real sweep second hand rather than a pulse. Old digital watches have their own specialness, especially the early T.I. and a few others with LEDs and calculators (as you've found). Now, if you really want to see some intricate clockworks find an old mechanical Bullard Vertical Turret Mill that you can get into the back of. That gear box is an absolute work of mechanical art. There are not too many of those around, but after seeing many clocks and watches
    (including some old bell tower clockworks) that Bullard was super impressive. I've never gotten into collecting watches except for the few pocket watches I have. Teeritz has some impressive watches also. https://teeritz.blogspot.com/

  3. Typewriters can write about anything in the universe—including watches! And you're not the only typospherian who does so (see Teeritz).
