Pianist Andre Tchaikowsky left his skull to the RSC when he died in 1982 in the hope it would be used on stage.
But since his death at the age of 46, it had only been used in rehearsals.
Tennant held it on stage during the famous "Alas, poor Yorick" scene in 22 performances at the Courtyard Theatre, in Stratford-upon-Avon.

If the Seiko has been working recently it's strange that it has just ceased up. scratch Have you tried moving the hands using the crown to see if they are colliding with each other or just giving it a strong left to right shake? Probably could have worded that better but hopefully it makes sense. Very Happy

Out of interest what are the dimensions of the Invicta? I'm hoping the weight of it isn't proportional to the size. Shocked

The Invicta is surprisingly light I do not have a tape measure to hand but will get back to you re the dimensions.

As for the Seiko it was working but I havent wore it for a long time , I have a feeling I might have dropped it but can not be 100% sure , yup I wound on the hands and gave it a rather good shake but still nothing ..

Thanks Bruce.

I noticed this morning it had stopped so once I got the case back off there was the usual struggle with the two small screws which secure the battery clasp. No mishaps though and a lot quicker than the 2 hours it took me to get the tiny screws back into an omega watch recently. Rolling Eyes
