The combination of a 60-degree January day in Detroit and 2 last minute tickets to Phantom of the Opera at the Detroit Opera House allowed the ATW Merritt to see a bit of Detroit today. (Bummer, should have stopped at Motown museum!)

Interestingly, the watch has been running for about 9 hours... and it is 3 hours slow. The minute hand seems to be turning fine, but the hour hand is not rotating correctly.

Looked like a great day! Love the Simmons and Clark neon sign (and your watch of course)!

"Ash" pretty much screwed the pooch and ran off with the Hayden, never to be heard from again. If one of the mods knows his actual name (or whoever sent it to him does), then maybe you can hunt him down.

If you happen to see a guy that looks like this in a pub with a Hayden on his wrist, perhaps you can inquire on our behalf.

I suspect the owner of the Merritt still has it and it goes around the world strapped to his 9" Australian wrist. :lol:
I can't imagine that Ash would have posted pictures of himself with plans to take the original Hayden. I wonder if something bad happened to him? Anyway, I have the Merritt. Who wants it next? (Perhaps I should send it to someone with the skills to repair it?? LOL)

Agreed.

Based on my last few watches that were to come in the mail, it could have been lost?

Thank God it wasn't a Glendale. LOL

If you want to send me the Merritt, it can make it's way to the Grand Tetons for a ski trip in mid February (50/50) on trip.

Well, the Merritt made it to this part of the world. It's either heading to a concert or to the Tetons.

Yes, that's a Sherwood Wood dialed Clock.........LOL

Hmm - I think it was AOK when it set off on its journey? But never mind - great to see this thread continue; thanks to all hosts!!

It won't make it to the Teton's as the storm wiped out the power in town for the past 7 days or so. I am sure it will make it to a Darius Rucker Concert Friday night.

Had lunch in LA with a couple of friends, so I decided to take the watch.
