A Relic

Got the straps and the glass replaced on this 35 year old HMT which was a wedding gift to my father by my maternal grandfather. It still ticks perfectly and will hopefully do so for another three decades.


Both my father and grandfather are long gone, only this physical representation of time stands for now. Through this relic, time reminds me of and mocks my insignificance in front of its unstoppable might.
