    I also love the mechanical watch movements with the ticking sounds and the sweeping second hand. I'm wearing a manual wind watch this week, and there's just something about giving the crown 25 turns before you put in on your wrist in the morning. The fact that the movement was uniquely assembled by a watchmaker and doesn't keep perfect time just adds to the charm.

    A sweeping second hand provides a cool visual indication that the watch is alive. Looking down at it sometimes gets me through some boring meetings at work. :)

    Several years ago I passed up a Monument field/military style watch at a shop for around $20 I think it was. Probably not the best quality but it was like new and looked the part. Shoulda got it.

    I like the Slow watch. Sadly though it's probably just not compatible with my work or my personality. Maybe when I retire the difference between being 10 seconds early and 10 seconds late won't matter so much :).
