The $250 Magnifying Glass

You know you’re a geek when you take a photo with your camera and zoom in on the display instead of looking for a magnifying glass:

Broken Watch Pin
OK, perhaps a bit overkill, but now I have this cool close-up picture of a broken watch pin.

Incidentally, it’s harder than I expected to buy just a replacement pin. I can find watchbands easily, but just the pins? I’m going to need to do some more looking. Not that it necessarily matters, since I seem to have misplaced the unattached half of the watchband — I may need to replace the whole band anyway.

If I do, this time I’m making sure I keep the remaining pin as a spare.
