Well, most of my hand tools are between 30 and 80 years old. I shave (most days) with an antique Solingen straight razor. And I still have the seiko watch that I received for graduation from high school.
Oh, and one of the knees I use is 57 years old, the other one is newer. smile

Got that Seiko in '75, huh?

I can do 57-year-old knees, myself. It's the 57-year-old brain that really ought to be taken out of use.

When I got home last night and opened a bottle of wine, I realized that my great-grandfather (he was an ironworker and inventer) made the solid brass corkscrew that we use. It is a nice thing to have. smile

Actually he did make wine. Every year they would get crates and crates of grapes and make wine. In the 80's we went into their wine cellar (my nonna lived there) and took out some vintage stuff. It was so strong, it was like brandy, and all the tannins and sediment stuck to the bottle so it was this beautiful gold color after we decanted it. They were from 1941 and 42.

I only recently switched from the alarm clock I had in high school (grad 1992) to using the alarm on my phone. Also, as much as I do depend on my smart phone I still use the old paper calendar book to keep all my appointments. It's funny what we cling to

How many 70+ year old bottles of wine do you have laying around your house?

My parents have 50 year old bottle of Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey. They were given it when my sister was born, 30 years ago. They never brought her home from the hospital. So they never drank it.
