I wrote some time back about the possibility of watches going out of style - in fact with the use of cell phones, disappearing altogether. The other day, I made a joke to a young 20 year old that the cell phone I turned in to upgrade recently was so old it was actually run by clockwork. I was met by a blank stare. He didn't recognise the term - incredible! But the fact is that something that was so prevalent in my early life is not around today. I think apart from some antique clocks I brought over from England, I only have three functioning clockwork items in my possession. A couple of watches, and a kitchen timer.
