Default I think I have the bug bad

I just ordered this little gadget so I can make sure my watches stay accurate. So what do you guys think, am I just crazy or do I have the bug in a big way?

No crazier than blowing your money at the tables in Vegas.
At the end o the day you have something tangible and utiilitary.
Lil different from the Timegraphers our RR watch inspectors
used tho. Yours is better MO.
My local watch guy of 35 years + refused to get his Timegrapher
repaired. He explained myself and 2 other customer are the only ones
to avail themselves of his Timegraphers qualities. I find that as thin
as Waffle House gravy. Only 3 mechanical owners? Baloney!!!

This is great. Makes me think you enjoy the mechanical engineering detail of a watch over aesthetics. Function first over form.

The trouble I find you having though is, now that you know how accurate or inaccurate your watches are, what will do you when they aren't accurate enough?

time to buy a watch servicing kit!

You definitely aren't crazy Shaker, just very smart, and looking to enjoy
the hobby that much more. ..You might have the bug. ..But it's a good
bug, so no worries.

Now, do they maybe make a device that checks the accuracy devices
for accuracy?!

Seriously though, congratulations too you on picking this up !!!

I have always been mechanically inclined so that may explain some of my fascination with watches.

You ain't touched in tha head.
Just take two aspirin and go to bed.
In tha morning, call Dr Feelgood.
Disregard that he's been ejected from
the AMA for malpractice.

My watchmaker told me he didn't need
a Timegrapher. He regulates by FEEL?
That's blasphemy!!!
