The History of Valentines Day


Valentine’s Day originated in the 3rd century. St. Valentine was a priest in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. The Emperor was having trouble recruiting members for his army because the men did not want to leave their wives and children for the long military expeditions. Some of these expeditions would last for months and even years. Emperor Claudius then decided that banning marriages in Rome would solve "his" problem. The Emperor Claudius had St. Valentine sentenced to death for defying his order and marrying couples in secret! As St. Valentine awaited execution, his admirers would come to the jail and leaving notes of support and flowers. As luck would have it, his most ardent admirer turned out to be the daughter of a prison guard. She would visit him for hours a day . On the day of his execution, February 14 in the year 269 AD, St. Valentine wrote her a note expressing his gratitude for her love, support, and friendship and signed it "Love from our Valentine". As it turned, out, the festival of Lupercalia (an ode to the god of fertility and a celebration of sensual pleasure) followed close after St. Valentine was executed. During the festival, boys would draw the names of girls and they would pair up for the games and festivities. The name Valentine was linked to this romantic festival.In 496, Pope Gelasius set aside the date of February 14 to honor Valentine as a saint.

Dark Burlwood Gloss Finish 2 -Turntable Watch Winder at One Passion Place


Watch winders are here at One Passion Place.

Here are some of our great watches

What is a Watch Winder and Why and When Do I Need to Use One? Watch winders are mechanical devices that keep an automatic or self-winding watch operating smoothly. Certain types of timepieces do not need to be wound by turning a dial because they wind themselves when they are strapped to an arm that is swinging and twisting all day long. Winders are able to simulate that natural motion for those who don't wear their watch everyday.

The internal parts of automatic watches are designed to follow the pull of gravity. They don't have gears that must be wound with a spring, but instead, their tiny weights get pulled by gravity as the wearer moves and swings his arm. Little by little, these weights are twisting around both clockwise and counter-clockwise, until the watch is wound up. This type is considered automatic or self-winding, as opposed to quartz, kinetic, or mechanical watches.

People who own fancy, collectible, beloved, or merely sufficient self-winding watches may want to invest in a winder. Not only do these devices keep the timepiece accurate even when it's not being worn, they probably extend its overall life by keeping parts lubricated and moving. By advancing the mainspring, it gently and continually winds the watch, yet prevents it from ever being "overwound." Another mechanism inside most watches will disengage after the gears have been fully powered.

Unconditional Love - The Greatest Gift Of All


As we head into the season of LOVE let us remember the little things we can do for another that do not cost anything. You can not put a price on a hug, a kiss or a touch. It is easy to get caught up in the joy of gift giving, and of course that is amazing too, However, no one can purchase Unconditional Love. We see this in our everyday lives. In the people that surround us, in the children that we raise. With our pets and with nature.

Remember this Valentines Day that some things have no price. They can not be bought. They can only be given and shared. As you decide what to send your true love this Valentines Day do not forget the other people and furry creatures that also surround you. A hug, a sweet note tucked in his briefcase or even a phone call to an old friend on February 14 may just make their day. Valentines Day isnt just for lovers it is for everyone. Make a point to touch someones life on this special day of #Love. Perhaps it will be the only #Valentine they receive. Perhaps you will make all the difference for them and it will only take a moment.

Happy Valentines Day from all of us at and
