Right now I’m wearing a $200 non-battery, handwound Swatch…good enough. Sidenote: Yesterday I was bullied and terrorized by the thought police for having written about a slow-reacting overweight person. It was a true story but I took it down because I was scared of what the thought police might do to me. Well, here’s another true story. When I was living in Westport in the late ’70s I knew an overweight guy who would roll into the kitchen and use the bathroom from time to time but who mainly sat on his couch and watched TV. One day he bought a self-winding watch, the kind that would wind itself if you engaged in a little natural movement. This guy was so sedentary that his watch stopped, or so his wife told me. This really happened.
