I remember a time when your watch didn't need a battery to work
So do I.
And when you had to wind clocks up too!
All politicians of retiral age, whether they're still in office or not, should be under an obligation to do the same.
I solved that I have a solar watch which keeps charged as long as the face is not covered. It is also radio controlled and will adjust when the radio control signal is sent. It changes automatically between day light saving happens. It is not fancy but I like it very much it shows day and date as well. I bought it because I was getting fed up getting batteries for my old watch. It is a casio it is a medium sized watch between a ladies and a mans size with a nice blue face. I got it on ebay as it was cheaper than going to the jeweller.
These sound a great idea LB and like Bev I might start saving for one. The only problem I have is that, although my current watch is on its 3rd or 4th bracelet, it was a present from my late mother 30 years ago and has never given me any trouble, so I don't want to part with it for that and sentimental reasons until it finally packs in. It was an inexpensive watch too, but a jeweler once told me it's a very reliable make (it's a Pulsar, which is made by a Swedish/American company).
