I was given this watch by my uncle on my 21st birthday, and I have worn it constantly for the last twenty years. Well, perhaps not constantly, it has been to the dry cleaners twice in the pockets of trousers, and was recently back at the factory for a month having a service and the glass replaced.
A quick look on ebay showed I could have got myself a new one for half what I paid getting this repaired. I’ve lost count of the new batteries and the new straps I have been through. This is the ounce of home that goes everywhere with me.
