Wedding day watch

My son got married on Saturday, I wore this, it was my father's, I inherited it when he passed, my son will get it when I go to the big AD in the sky.

THIS is what it’s all about! Fantastic piece and story! Think about the family history here. This watch will have been worn by 3 generations of your family patriarch by the time your son gets it, plus it was worn on his wedding day.

I love when a watch builds up sentimental value like this. It’s what it’s all about in my opinion

Thanks for sharing such a special piece

Great watch, and an even better story. Letís make sure he waits a long time before getting it, though. Continue to wear and enjoy it in the best of health.

That’s a timeless watch. And I love the idea of wearing it on wedding day. I wore my white dial TOG on my wedding day and will have to pass it off to one of my daughters as I have no sons.

Congratulations once again Doc.
I just love it when a watch is passed down through the generations.
Do us all a favor though and hang onto it for a good long while.
