                Some of those watches are quite attractive. As a woman's watch it might have a longer lifetime than it would if used by a man. Men tend to wear one watch all the time, and they take a lot of punishment. Women tend to have watches for various occasions, and swap them to match the clothes they are wearing.

                At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

                  Ah, watch case. You know that in the 19th century Russians made pocket watch mechanisms from wood all except for the spring as even that much brass was too expensive.
