This c.1970 PRIM gets an airing today. Made in the former Czechoslovakia and driven by their own 17j Cal. 68 with Kif-Satellor anti-shock.

This example was produced by the state-owned Elton Company (formerly Chronotechna) which started in the late 1940s but ceased making watches in about 1994. They subsequently sold the “PRIM” name before recommencing production in 2009, later being forced to use a slightly modified brand name after losing a long-running legal battle raised by those to whom they had earlier sold the “PRIM” name.

Seiko Kinetic with soil containing parsnip and carrot seeds, hopefully soon to germinate, with a sneak peek of a few bricks from next door's Grade II listed wall (now there's a treat).

This watch was a bit of a spontaneous purchase. I've had it for almost a month now and haven't worn it for more than a couple of days in that time, but it sits there, in my desk drawer, uncomplainingly telling the right time, and it has quite a nice understated look about it. You could say that it's growing on me.

Which is more than can be said for the parsnips and the carrots.
