I'm quite jealous of some of these lovely clocks and watches. I love clocks, and don't have a one in my house at the moment...
The timepieces in this photo are representative, in a way, of three different eras of my life.
The stopwatch harks back to the mid-seventies, when, as a member of the Canadian Timing Association, I was privileged to be a member of the official timing team for two Canadian Grands Prix, back in the days when the F1 circus came to Mosport. We used more sophisticated watches (and later, digital timers), but I bought this one back then because I just had
to have one. It wasn't just GPs, either, there was racing almost every weekend from April till September, and I went as often as I could.
The wrist watch was given to me by a German friend in Spain, as she thought my habit of carrying my alarm clock in my pocket was just a bit too eccentric.
Of course, the town hall clock is current, and represents my return to Canada. Besides, I love clock towers, too
