“Lost time is never found again.”

~ Benjamin Franklin ~


(… But are you sure you really lost it? ...)


  1. Ben Franklin had a lot of good sayings, and this one is perfect for this watch shop window! I do like that little last bit you have added!

  2. another pretty window. is that a watch repair shop? they are not a common sight here now, we just buy cheap ones and when they quit toss it and buy another one.

  3. We do still have a few shops which specialize in watches and clocks and don't sell much else; but I'm not sure what kind of services they offer now, except change of batteries and straps etc, which is the only thing I've asked for myself in the last 30 years or so.

  4. Great quote. I went looking for a watch repairer recently and found him down a dark hallway, up two flights of stairs and along the hall. There was a tiny counter with three customers already there and I had to wait quite a while to be served. Must have been the afternoon rush hour. I wonder if that man would envy this lovely shop window? Or if he's happy being a one man band conducting his business away from the crowds?

  5. Which is why we should never waste it!
