I often approach new authors with some trepidation. Gwynne's book was enjoyable with a varied set of characters, perhaps a little formulaic but easily read. So much so that I immediately ordered and read the follow up ( unfortunately leaving a wait for the third book)
Bought this watch in November 2012, in September 2013 the adjuster for analogue hands came out when I was adjusting the time - sent back to TIMEX at my cost and they have decreed that a broken part is accidental damage and therefore not covered by warranty. I don't know how you could accidentally damage a part INSIDE the watch. Timex had a cheap and cheerful reputation many years ago - NOW JUST CHEAP.
