Out of time?

My Timex T311T Auto-set clock did not update this past Sunday morning with the time change. I've tried unplugging it, and removing the two AAA backup batteries, and when I give it juice again, it refuses to auto set. I've had this clock for a few years and it has never misbehaved. Any one else experience this with a similar model this weekend? Or am I missing something?

Should I play with my TS1000?

So, I just received a Timex Sinclair 1000 (WITH the 16k memory upgrade! and flight simulator!) as a gift. Should I open the box and play to my hearts content? Or will this monolith of computing power be worth enough in the future, to justify it staying trapped and suffocated in its yellowed shinkwrap? [more inside]

How can I get my 20+ yr old Timex windable watch fixed?

I own a windable Timex watch given to me about twenty years ago. I have been using it for the past few years without problem, but now it doesn't seem to keep time very well. Timex HQ says that they won't fix it because of its age and parts likely being unavailable. How can I get this watch tuned up/repaired? I'd like to keep it - great sentimental value plus my name engraved in the back.

Help me find a new watch.

For the second time in as my years, my Timex Expedition watch has stopped working. I put up with it because I like the style, and re-setting the time every few hours wasn't that big of a deal. I'm having trouble finding another (non-Timex) watch with an analog face AND a small digital display... do any MeFites have any recommendations? (Another Timex with the features I want... and a Swiss Army one with the look I want....) [more inside]
