Weirdly enough, watchmaking class.

There were only six or seven of us towards the end, but it was a place I could go hang out , crack jokes, do something engaging and be with people who I was neither related to nor had any control over my ability to earn.

I'm through all the watchmaking and I now have equipment every bit as good at home. There's a clockmaking class, though. I told my wife I wasn't really into it because I'm kind of sick of "class" and she said "you come home happy every Monday night. Don't discount that."

There's also a peculiarly-underpriced Erwin Sattler on eBay right now that doesn't even have a case.
