For our thirtieth anniversary...I gave hubby a new Wittnauer watch. Wittnauer has a reputation of high-quality, accuracy and beauty (I took that from their website). It was a fine-looking timepiece...but we soon realized that the accuracy part was missing. It was always way behind time! While still on warranty it spent more time at the Wittnauer repair center than it did on hubby's wrist. They insisted that it kept perfect time! Our jeweler wore it himself for several weeks and said it kept perfect time. He decreed it was hubby's 'magnetic field' that threw the watch off. His suggestion was to leave it in the case (ha)...or put a leather shield on the back of the watch to provide a barrier. Well, the leather shield actually did the trick for some time. But recently the Wittnauer stopped short and a new battery was not the solution...and so we spent big bucks having the watch repaired. After all...it is a fine looking watch!
For two weeks it kept time...and now it has stopped short again. When is it time to give up on the old? The fortieth wedding anniversary is coming up....
Speaking of time standing still...don't forget that it is actually moving ahead this weekend. Remember to push your clock ahead on Saturday night.
Time, indeed, is a sacred gift,
and each day is a little life.

Have a wonderful weekend!
