Back there at the end of the 1980, when Yugoslavia was seriously falling apart, I was drafted in the Yugoslav National Army. My father (may he rest in peace) gave me a list of advices, mostly about how to game the then system. And gamed it I did to the best of my abilities. One of the said advices was: Don't use a wristwatch, my son, your fellow fighters will steal it at as soon as they get the opportunity. Use a pocket watch, a cheap Soviet one if possible. Nobody will want to steal that. Keeping time is important, my son, when you are on the sentry duty, and all. OK. And so I bought a cheap Soviet pocket watch. I've never did the sentry duty, thank almighty Cthulhu, gaming the system, and all, but, still, I've kept my pocket watch. Cheap & Soviet as it was, the goddamned thing still works, after all these decades. And, just look how accurate it still is. Unbelievable.
