New Watch.

I bought myself a new watch yesterday, well new to me. It's an Omega Seamaster. Fully automatic, you know, the self-winding type. Ok, so it's a fake, but you wouldn't know.

Trigger came in, (i'd forgotten it's a bank holiday), and the usual conversation ensued. The plumber was also in and commented on my new timepiece. Trigger wanted a look.

"That's nice, battery is it?"
"No, automatic", i said.
"What?"
"Automatic, it winds itself up when you move".
"Right".
"It's a bit like you Trigger,it winds people up by itself", came the Plumbers reply.

"Why don't you...........

"Now, now Trigger.
