about the watch, its history, its meaning to you, and the transformation from being impressed by a watch that told time in red lights when you pressed a button, to being impressed by an understated watch that most non-watch hobbyists would never notice.
Overall, its a lovely watch, but for anyone who has lost a parent or significant other, its the memories that are attached to that item that are important. When my Mom passed, my sister got her beautiful manual wind George Jensen Movado bracelet watch, her Rolex, and several other pieces of jewelry that I know have great meaning to her. I got a ring that she always wore that I thought was very interesting in design (and its unisex in design). Sorry no pix.
My Dad is still alive and he dabbles in watch collecting though not as much as he used to. He is the person that got me hooked on watches at a very early age by telling me about Rolex and Pateks. The stories he told me about watches got me interested in watches by the time I was 10 years old. By the time I was 13, I had convinced my parents to let me cash some bonds to get my first good watch, a SS GMT Master....although I mostly looked at it as I was too you to wear it to school.
P.S. Here is a watch that my Dad gave to me about 3 years ago. He used to wear it all the time so there are lots of memories attached to it. Although, I do not wear yellow gold very often, I do make an exception for this watch.
