Yesterday, my friends and I went to Anime North for the day and we both bought one of those National Alchemist Pocket Watches. They were both made from different metals and of different prices, of course. But that didn't matter to us, since the make was completely similar. It was while we were in line for the Masquerade (a whooping two hour wait in line and then a complete hotel lock down because of a missing person), we took out both watches and spent a ton of time looking at them and then we noticed something.
The engraved date inside.
One said "3 Oct 10" and the other was "3 Oct 11"
Of course, besides the 3 Oct, both of us couldn't remember whether the last part of the date was 10 or 11. I just did a mega google search right now and I found watches with both dates available. So, my main question is... Which is the right date? Is there a difference between the manga and anime? It would really suck to have the wrong date, but at least we'd know.
And then my second question, to those who have one of those watches already.. how does it work? I mean, I know how to wind it up to the right time and all but what I'm wondering is if it's battery operated or what? It didn't specify a battery type on the boxes and on both watches, I don't see a place where you would open it. My friend said that they might be the wind up type, but I'm not so sure. I just want to know what to do if it stops moving.
Sorry for so many questions. .__. This was the biggest investment I've ever made at a con.
