Afforadable AutomaticWatchGuide1

Father's Day is coming soon and you are probably scratching your head, trying to think of a gift. Sure, you could just buy him another tie, but I propose you buy him a watch instead. Not just any watch, but a mechanical automatic that uses no batteries and gets its power from his wrist. Something he will use and cherish for years to come. Don’t know an automatic watch from Adam? Never fear, The Time Bum is here to help. First, things first: what is an “automatic” watch and why would Dad want … [Continue]
