In these days of “fast” and “convenient” I decided to commence a work of
“painstaking” and “craftsmanship”, making my own wristwatch. I have had the
idea for a certain arrangement of the watch dial, as on the image at the
right, for a while now. My investigations into available movements showed
that no production movement would give me this layout. After a long period
of indecision and wondering what I was really getting myself into I decided
to make my own movement, followed by the case and dial.

I also have a few readers that might be interested in making a wrist watch
by hand. I personally would have gone with a pocket watch, but that's me.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
