I've had lots of watches come and go over the years but my prized possessions are my maternal grandfather's pocketwatch and my paternal grandfather's wristwatch.  These will be passed down when the ti

I found what I think is an old plumb bob that I use all the time. I found it at a place that sold all types of items out of an old barn in a shoe box of odds and ends. Brass & very heavy.  

 

GB to answer your question a plumb bob is used to vertical level something .To make it plumb. prehistoric technology . A water level is for horizontal leveling . Back in the day . 

Good stuff !

Bought a Tag Carrera for my 30th bday.  It’s been pretty disappointing for being so expensive. Been eyeing a IWC aquatimer for some time now.

Rocks don't work that good, I have used  some very heavy plumb bobs back in the day on some high rise buildings.

I collected watches and pens for years.  I stopped about 5 or so years ago.  I find myself rarely wearing a watch anymore.  If I do, it is my apple or garmin watch.  Now they sit....I traded a tag recently for a black gun.  I guess I will sell or pass them on.....my kids aren’t into watches either.  Seems to be another thing that is going by the waist side.....
