Not a great pic, but everyone else got to show off their watch, so here's my beat-to-hell, but really cool watch. And yes, the compass works :)

I had a really nice watch but I traded it for a sculpture in a third-world country. It was only a Swatch, but damn if it wasn't the most interesting time piece I've ever seen which wasn't specially crafted by Swiss gnomes wearing gilded monocles and tripping their balls off of hallucinogenic mushrooms grown in Atlantean caves and costing the princely sum of 4 white arabian horses pulling a novelty copper gourd filled to the brim with robitussin and platinum ingots. That and the fact that despite assurances that the mass produced mechanics of it would cause it to lose about 15 seconds per day, it kept perfect time. It's been the only watch I've enjoyed wearing and I've given up on my quest to replace it. Oh, the fleeting follies of youth. Had I but one regret, it would be that I didn't show you the appreciation and love you deserved. But I digress. In it's place I present this:

3 of 3 (Yes... this silly clock really hangs in the garage... and it even makes an obnoxious sound -- to imitate a motor revving -- on the hour).
