I think I have a addiction, well, another one anyway that’s reared it’s ugly head as of late . Curious if anyone else loves them?

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.

You're half a bubble off'a plumb yourself.

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.....
