"My Uncle Bill gave me my first watch, and I think it was called an Ingersoll. As I remember, an Ingersoll watch cost $1  and it kept pretty good time but it had to be wound every day or it  stopped. Winding a watch is just one of the jobs we no longer have to  take care of, but it was easy and satisfying. Now, my watch winds  itself. I suppose the time will come when we’ll have self-living lives." - Andy Rooney on watches and life
