365 Project - Day 250 - "Can't Sleep (Watch Repair)"

September 07, 2015 - "Can't Sleep (Watch Repair)"

I'm awake - way too early for Labor Day. Everyone else is still sleeping, and I'm sitting here trying to get my brother's Invicta 1691 Sea Hunter working again. So far I'm not having much luck.

That's life lately though, isn't it? I mean, I'm constantly trying to fix things... using what tools I have to open things up and try to get them working again. Using those same tools to restore bands and bonds to their proper positions. Using my wrench to close the lid on things that should be hidden and protected. Trying to set the time as accurately as possible according to the "Great Big Clock in the Sky".

At least, that's how it feels.

I have the tools to open the watch and remove the battery. I have the new batteries to replace the old. I have the ability to reseal the backing and protect what should be protected. I can reattach the bands... and even remove or add links when necessary to make things fit more snugly, more secure.

But I cannot make a dead watch run again. That is beyond my abilities.

And that is what frustrates me.
