"I may be a watch obsessive." Haha.

Jeff, would you prefer comments to your videos be posted here or on Youtube? I'm just not sure if you're trying to build a "Youtube presence" or not, or just using it as an uploader.

Jonny, I don't know what I'm doing, so either way is fine. I figured you're right. Our zeitgeist dictates more videos so I'm trying out your suggestion.

Jeff,

If you haven't charged that Mighty Mite in 10 years, I suspect the battery is toast. I had a similar device that I kept in my trunk. I failed to charge it for several months and it wouldn't take a charge any more. It was only a couple years old. Lead acid batteries like to be kept at a decent charge. If not, their life is shortened.

Gary

Jeff,

Did you buy both Citizen Promaster Sky models (black and stainless)? If so, I guess you really are a watch obsessive. Are they both made out of titanium?

jonnybardo

Jeff, the thing I like about Youtube is that you start tapping into other watch fanatics (or whatever your thing is) and can have an ongoing dialogue. Blogs are great as well, but they seem more insular.

Plus, to be honest, for someone such as myself who likes to ramble and take a more impressionistic rather than surgical approach to mentation, it is easier and less time-consuming to ramble on for 10-20 minutes that it is to compose a few-page long blog. I do enjoy writing, but have really been enjoying "vlogging" and so will focus on that for the time being, at least so far as watch obsession is concerned.

Jonny,

I'm open to vloggng though my vanity balks at the production standards rendered so far.

Gary,

Thanks for the heads up about that battery charger. After plugging it in, it says it's fully charged, but I haven't used it to start my vehicle. Regarding the Citizen, both are titanium, but I only bought the black one.

Your new cars buttery is just bad luck. It's happening sometimes, want we that or not:(even with new buttery. Can't predict .I drive Nissan, and Nissan service told me to change buttery, but I didn't listen and still driving car with same buttery for more than one year. Besides that, sometimes I work in different province for month or few weeks, anyway when I came back, my car still starting without problems. Luck?
I have around two hundred radios. I buy them from everywhere in the word, but I still like it to do so even I do not use them. Yesterday I listen hockey on TSN? 1040 am, and before to do it I checked few receivers with one I could have better sound from broadcast for my ears , I picked Toshiba TY-KR1.Good radio for strong signal. so I enjoyed. It was moment when I enjoyed.
Keep your watches even if you wear just one. I have few Seiko, Tissot etc. They are all superior precise time watches. Like you I have been hunting for them waiting them when somebody will buy them for me from Japan and eventually I wear just one watch for everyday .I do not sale other. I love them and sometimes even not for long time I wear one of them and enjoy design, clarity of crystal, precision of mechanism. And again- It is moment when I enjoyed.
You have a good hobby , you learn about it and educate those who read your blog. Keep doing it.
Cheers.

Val, thanks for the encouragement. I agree with consumer products like radios there is some luck involved. My Nissan however has a new battery; however, I don't drive much during holidays.

Newer cars with electronic crap (alarms, on board computers, etc.) cause massive parasitic drain on batteries. Some cars are worse than others. Fact of the matter is that if I don't drive my '93 BMW at least once a week or every 10 days----I will get in and the car won't start. It was the same issue with a 1990s era Buick station wagon I had. Some cars---can go up to 3 weeks. Meanwhile, on my '79 Chevy Monza with a 6 year old battery----I can let that car sit in the dead of winter for 2 months and when I get in, it starts. There are no accessories draining the battery while the car is sitting still.

I use something like this:

for charging my battery once every month, without disconnect it. I use my car not often, something like once every 10 days for short distance drive. My battery (Varta) is still going strong after 6,5 years. Led light indicator is still green and no signs of wear
