Being an amateur armorist I have often been accused of living in the past, an accusation I have always strenuously denied.
I now have positive proof that far from living in the past, I do in fact live in the future.
For decades now I have been the contented owner of a Casio W-59 watch described by retailers as "a tried and true style that always remains in fashion. With its daily alarm, hourly time signal and auto calendar, you’ll never need to worry about missing an appointment again. Black Casual Classic Watch with a Resin Band." I think I purchased it many years ago from a garage forecourt shop on the way home from a business meeting; it may even have come free with x number of gallons (or was it litres?) of petrol. Anyway, it was either free or extremely cheap and it has served me well ever since only needing the strap replacing every once in a while.
I've never had any trouble with it but I did struggle every six months when the "clocks changed" to move from Greenwich Mean Time to British Summer Time and then back again. The problem is that I could never quite remember how to alter the actual time and even when I managed to figure it out, it was another six months until I had to do it again by which time I had forgotten what to do ... again.
Today is the 29th February.
A Leap Year.
It only happens every four years.
My watch thinks it's March the first!
