At the time, there were no watch companies left in the U.S. except for giants Timex and Fossil, a tiny outfit in Florida called Krieger and RGM, a watch repair shop that also sold a fistful of watches a year under its own brand name. To the PR lady from CMU, to have a new upstart in this rather dusty, decaying field of business, was exciting. "Normally we expect a new company originating here to give 50% of its shares to the university, but in your case we'll make an exception. You tell a good story and your watches are beautiful," the PR agent said once. As long as I remained enrolled in classes full-time and maintained good grades, I would be permitted to run Kobold.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
