The great thing about Zippo lighters is their reliability, but they're only good for cigarettes. Cigar and pipe smokers don't like 'em because of the nasty flavor from the fuel.

What no luv for Ronson lighters?
The WW2 era Sherman tanks were called "Ronsons"
Because if they were hit by a German 88mm round
they became a Ronson lighter. Being a "Tread Head"
in my Nam days was my greatest fear! But the U S A
Security Agency allayed that fear. Trained at Ft Devins

That Zippo watch sure resembles some of the B&R iterations.
But I guess you knew that!!! Did you "Spring Ahead" last nite?
I did. 28 times.

Ugh! I took care of some. Mostly, I just wait until I wear a particular watch again. I took care of just about half my collection. The ones on the winder and the quartz movements.

When my father still smoked a pack a day, his Ronson (with a leather cover) was his most prized possession as it cost a month's wages back in the day. Build like a Swiss watch.
