What is the right time?
Time is not one of nature’s gifts to humanity like day and night and the seasons. It has no concrete existence, it is an invention of man to enable him to synchronize his auctions. For ordinary wear of watch varying no more than 15 seconds fast or slow, that is a total possible variation of 30 seconds i twenty-four hours is a moderately good watch. It is a very difficult matter to time a watch closely to seconds a day.
The quality of a watch as a timekeeper lies solely in its rating, that is the rate of its steady gaining or steady losing. Either of these conditions can be narrowed down by simple regulation. Treated as a watch should be wound regularly and cleaned, overhauled and re-oiled every 4-5 years every good watch should last a lifetime.
