some of the watch keys I find from time to time. They are
from various ages and in various conditions.
anything you find several of, it can get to a point when you
think, oh it's just another watch key or winder and stick
it in your pocket, even though the first time you found one
it was very exciting. I like to think of the person who might
have been the owner of the watch these things were used with,
in the times when not many people could afford to live from
day to day, never mind own such a fine thing. It was probably
someone at a higher level in society, who wore fine clothes
and ate well and may even have had servants and a nice house
and was able to look across rolling fields and beautiful undeveloped
scenery from the saddle of his horse, as he rode along country
lanes - see, even the things you might find lots of can still
transport you like a miniature time machine into the past.
