A Drunken Babble

It was a long day at work today but thankfully I ended my day without a fire or having to fire anyone. Don’t ask I somehow have that authority. Anyway I cracked open a bottle of wine to help ease my nerves. As I’ve been enjoying my evening I looked at my watch and had a need to get my glass so I can look at all the small details my poor eyes can’t really see. As I watched the sub seconds hand on my Daily (Hamilton Chronograph H)  run it’s course I couldn’t help but enjoy the concentric circles in her eyes. It’s the small details of watches that made me love these complex little machines that simply tell us the time, and of course from time to time a little more. If I may ask what small detail do you love about your watches?

Awesome username! You well exceeded anything I expected with your answers. I love the examples you even provided! Your divers are all fantastic your ultramarine is stunning!

It's not just my watches, but chronographs with additional seconds hands. 

I love starting the Chrono when the seconds hand is either at 0 or 30 & watching them turn in perfect sync.

I just wish I could be this coherent when I'm drunk.

When I get to do that I get super excited! It’s mostly by accident since I never use my chronographs at the same time as the seconds hand! I use my chrnos at random when I need them. they are the best tools!

Years of practice!

This Brew has a few little details I love like the hollow delicate looking hands.

Also, I love the little curve going from dial side to case back side on the edge of the case of my Airman

Oh I really do like that. That is a nice little detail that I would not have noticed! Thank you for sharing :)

I love the whole look on your watch. The hands are nice and I am happy to see that seconds hand even has a hallow counter weight.
