Pinch, punch, first of the month

Some time after I got this “proper job” and was therefore officially all grown-up, I thought that it was about time I treated myself to a decent anaolgue watch.

However, sometimes I wish that I’d kept my old Casio Databank. I loved the looks of the Seiko Arctura Kinetic auto-relay from the moment I saw it. Its ability to hibernate for up to four years and then set itself to the correct time also scored points with me. But it can’t keep track of the date and really grinds my gears to have to spend five minutes advancing the date by hand in order to correct the calendar to the 1st at the start of every other month – and especially so in March!
