Watch You're Wearing TUESDAY, 5 September 2017

Postby Mortuus » September 4th 2017 10:57pm

This was my father's OMEGA Seamaster automatic chronometer. He had wanted an Omega for as long as he could remember, and finally, in the summer of 1976, he picked one up and, quite literally, wore it for the rest of his life. Not long after he passed, I was going through some of his things, when I came across this watch. It will, quite literally, remain with me for the rest of my life. After that, who knows? In truth, we only borrow these things along the way, and when we go, well, hopefully, this watch will go to someone who can and will appreciate it for what it is... 8)

That's a beautiful watch Mort! Just got off the plane and had to report for Jury Duty. What a day.

Thanks mucho, Artello! That sux about the jury duty, but at least you're wearing a very nice watch to stare at through the hours of boredom...I have that same one, and despite picking up my new Borealis, I'll still be wearing my Seiko "55fm's" proudly!
