Just ran across this watch on Amazon and thought I'd pass it along - looks pretty cool now that xmas is coming up.

Excerpted from the website

"If you want to deter that pesky friend who's always peeking over your shoulder to check the time, then put a stop to it with the Morse Code watch from Tokyo Flash. With the Morse Code strapped to your wrist you'll stimulate your mind and learn to tell time in a whole new way, or at least impress your friends. "

   I haven't worn a watch since I got my first cell phone. Still don't think I will.
   1. No pesky friend ( no friends at all)
   2. Obviously I am out to impress no one
   3. See # 1 parentheses

   Some engineer has too much "time" on his hands. But if its your thing have at it.

Being a sucker for fancy watches, it might only take a week or two for it to wind up in a drawer with the other dozen watches (:-)

    I'm waiting for the watch that is actually an all mode 80 to 440 tranceiver!  Gotta happen sooner or later, right?

Take a  FT 857d, drive a nail in its top cover and strap it to your wrist. As long as its daylight you've got a sundial. At night just tune around for the Century Club Net. You can tell the time by what band its on.
