Who are your watches going to?

Interested to know what your plans are with your watches...will you take them with you? Are they set aside for your kids / grandkids? Maybe there's a niece or nephew that you want to hand them down to?

For my wife and I, there's no question where our watches are going - our two little guys. Plan is to start small early (the Tudor BBN for high school graduation), and go bigger from there.

This is also an excuse to post photos of those loved ones!

Nice pics as usual Jpeezy!
My plan is to give away my watches to my two sons and two nephews at appropriate times in the coming years.
My next giveaway will be this May when my son graduates from law school. He’s a watch guy and I’m looking forward to this moment and his reaction.

You'll definitely have to share the reaction with us - that is exciting stuff, and congratulations on the milestone!

Great photos, you really are a photogenic bunch

My watches will also go to our kids if they want them. They havent really expressed an interest so far, although I'm working on them

My wife has come over to the dark side

Great looking family!

My wife has also taken kindly to watches...sometimes I wonder if that's a good or a bad thing!

Definitely the two kids. My daughter has already asked if she could have mommies watches and my son certainly appreciates and has admiration of watches.

All of mine will be handed down to my two sons. The youngest seems to be most fond of the 116619..

To pay off medical bills or nursing home costs, I'm guessing.

Cute kids. I have one watch each designated to my two kids. Anything other than that just becomes part of my estate and my wife or whoever is in charge of my estate can figure out the rest.

We do not have kids. Our sole heir is my Nephew. He is a good kid but a weed smoking machine. Not sure he will find the joy in my watch and cigar collection that I do, but he can always sell and get things he enjoys.

All my watches (and everything else) will go to my kids. Both boys have birth year watches and the AP skeleton is even dated and first worn the day my middle boy was born. The Aquanaut belongs to the youngest and my daughter gets both wedding watches since she was a honeymoon baby on our trip to AP in Le Brassus. They have already started laying claim to the other watches and often ask what daddy is wearing and are competitive on who's I wear.

My 3 sons will get them eventually at some important moment in their lives down the road. They’re pretty little at the moment.

You all have done beautiful families on here. I need to get some better pictures of mine eventually. They are still kinda feral, trying to socialize them with society so I can get better pictures some day.

I never had kids but I took over the leases on Nancy's 5 boys. We've already bought each of them a Rolex, but I guess my collection will be divvied up among them and Nancy's among their wives. The pix below were taken a couple of years ago with 4 of them at a golf tournament. #5 (Explorer) was out of town at the time.
