I couldn’t resist this ‘Sport Solar Analog Display Japanese Quartz Silver Watch’, and so I ordered it from Amazon on Sunday night. No, I do not really need another watch, but hey – it’s not expensive, and I love the bold, sporty 3, 6, 9 and 12.
So no fancy Swiss or French watch with a tourbillon* for me! It’s got to be a Seiko. I think my first watch ever was a Seiko and that’s where it comes from.
*From Wikipedia : In horology, a tourbillon (French: “whirlwind”) is an addition to the mechanics of a watch escapement. Developed around 1795 and patented by the French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet on June 26, 1801, a tourbillon aims to counter the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage, to negate the effect of gravity when the timepiece (thus the escapement) is stuck in a certain position.
