The Shit That Killed Elvis 5 / 12

Sometimes you really don't know what you are going to find, and that is what brings us to The Shit That Killed Elvis 5 / 12.

Eza is really two young men who became enamored with a vintage Soviet watch.  But as most of us know who have owned a watch from the CCCP will relate, they look bitchin' but they are not exactly precise time keepers.

And based on that illogical passion (which is something encouraged here at Tempus Fugit), they created their own interpretation of their dream watch.  And it is a winner!

I got to try it on, and it is a wonderful time machine.  It certainly draws some solid inspiration from an horological relic of Soviet inefficiency, but works like a dream.
