I went into a shop in Colchester a couple of years ago. The boss came over and asked if he could help.

"Just looking." says I. "You sold me this ( Saiko piloty thing) in 1985, and it's still going strong. He didn't say anything, let alone anything nice. Silly tart.

Still, he had sold me a watch that is waaaaaaaay past the chronometer standard, and has only had two battery replacements for its '4 synchronous motors.' But...I have to set the date and time manually, that is to say once a year...Sorry, That was Peter Sellers butting in...
