Welcome to WC.

tempus commented on What’s your best wall clock? ·

I don't have any wall clocks, but I do have a couple of desk clocks that I think are kinda interesting.

Modern Retro Clock from Royal Enamel on Etsy

It's available in several colors, and also available as a wall clock. In addition to this style, the seller has several other retro designs.

And then this Jefferson Golden Hour Mystery Clock. Unfortunately this one "works" but is off my hours per day, and needs repair.

tempus commented on Should I intentionally magnetize my watch ·

You think it be a good idea to intentionally magnetize it so it runs faster? 

That's kinda like turning the radio up to fix the nagging squeal coming from the brakes.

Thank you. Unfortunately I'm on Android, so I guess I'm out of luck for that one.

Welcome to WC. What app is that that you're using for tracking your watches?
