[time-nuts] Measuring the accurcy of a wrist watch

    I have a Timex watch that's probably seven or eight years old. It has an 
LCD readout. The buttons haven't worked in years. It looses about one second 
every three or four months. I have to take out the four microscopic screws 
in the back to get into it to set it. The only reason I hang onto it is that 
is the most accurate watch I've ever owned.

    Is there some way to detect its internal frequency inductively? In the 
past I have used old relay coils as inductive pickups with success, but 
never with a watch.
