Time is on your side

This is apropos of absolutely nothing. But I learned something new today and it was so clever that I just had to share it.

I had a quartz battery replaced in one of my watches. As the jeweler returned it, he said, “To save battery life, power off the watch when you don’t need it. Just pull out the stem.”

He did that and sure enough, the watch stopped ticking. He pushed the stem back into the normal position and the watch started ticking again.

Of course, if you power off the watch, it won’t keep time. Once you power it back on you’ll have to reset the time.

Since I have about 15 watches and wear only one at a time, I will definitely start doing this. Once I get all the dead batteries replaced. Thanks, Steve’s Custom Jewelers, for the tip.
