sign of the times

i’m looking to buy a watch, but no where seems to sell them these days. i went to Nowhere and even they had ceased selling them.
i went from door to door down tottenham court road saying “do you sell watches” with no success. next time i’ll actually go in to the shops.
i want a thermometer and compass on my watch and i only want to spend £20. i suspect my search may take some years.
meanwhile i can take my old watch to the clothes repairers where i saw this sign. they can apparently alter a 24 hour clock and turn it in to a more decimal 10 hour version. possibly.
