(John F. Kennedy's Omega 'Ultra Thin', wore throughout his presidency.)
Old watches, these all started out as simple objects with one purpose, tracking the passage of Earth’s rotation.
Turning 1440 cycles around their dial from one sunrise to the next. Working diligently to place some order into our otherwise chaotic lives. Reminding us we are late for that important meeting, or when the next full moon will brighten our midnight.
Some, were gifts to celebrate special moments in one’s life, while others, through the randomness of atoms, have an encounter with history. Journey through the depth of space to the height of human achievement, or plunge within the darkness of twisted political ideology. However no matter who were the wearers, they all have their unique stories to tell.
After all these decades, when other technologically advanced objects serve purpose no more, these trusty tools of the past still tick on, to tell us the time and more importantly, their times.
