The Wrist Watch Boneyard
Audrey was looking for a replacement battery for an old watch, and that got me looking through my own wrist watch boneyard. I gave up wearing watches in 2008.
Back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, I wore one of these:
The Casio ABX-20 was an analog watch with a digital display that floated above the hands. I thought it was pretty cool at the time (although I am sure everyone else thought it was dorky). I also had a couple of Timex “Expedition” analog/digital watches — they had Indiglo backlights.
I still think the analog/digital dual format is pretty cool.
Sadly, the Casio ABX-20 is beyond repair. But while we were getting a battery for Audrey’s watch, I picked up a few batteries for some of the other boneyard watches, just to take them for a nostalgic spin.

I love wearing a watch, too – https://antipaucity.com/2014/05/20/to-wear-a-watch/#.V4ZRO7grKCg (though my main watch does need a battery)
