I've Always Been a Time Guy

Timeophile? Is that a thing? Can you like time like people like murder mysteries, cups of tea, and typewriters? If you do, does that make you a watch person?

I've been plumbing the depths of clocks, watches, and watch repair recently. Specifically, trying my hand at some repairs. I was able to get this Elgin 18s pocket watch to run nicely and keep time +4 seconds a day. 

Why, yes! That is a 3-d printed casing cushion. 

It's given me some confidence to try other timepieces. I'm working on an old Raketa now and I plan to move onto a Longines in short order. Never spending too much on these, I am having fun and staying out of trouble which is the purpose of a hobby.
