There's something about a real mechanical watch that fascinates me. I tried wearing an Apple Watch for a bit and it was cool but I missed wearing a real mechanical watch. I really like Omega watches and own a couple of them. My everyday watch is an Omega Seamaster from the 1960s with a black dial and black leather band and I have a silver one for more dressier occasions. These are great watches and it will be neat to pass them on down to my son and eventually my grandsons. I have my dad's 1950's Bulova and wear it from time to time. It still works great and it brings back so many memories of my dad. I'm grateful to have it. There's just something about a REAL ticking watch!
I just bought a used mechanical stopwatch off of eBay and today I recorded it for a "stopwatch ticking sound effect". Take a listen to it below. The picture to the left is the actual stopwatch I bought and recorded.
This particular sound will be available on Motion Array within the next week or two.
