Notice in the last picture of the watch as held in a man's gloved hand that the minute hand points to two minutes before twelve yet the hour hand points to aproximately 15 min past the hour of three. WTF?

The man holding the watch is none other than Nick Hayek himself - he died a few years ago.

So Paul now you know the truth about some of these watches - they don't work!

Likely you would be hard pressed to find someone willing to take it apart to fix it.

That would be a stress plus repair job.

Many of those type of things just reside in museums unused.
