Maybe not bigtimer enough for this thread but a nice story:
2 years ago when my grandmother died my uncle emailed all the grandkids asking if they wanted anything. I indicated I didn't have anything to remember my grandfather by. He died in 1989. I indicated I would be interested in any cufflinks, rings etc that might be left. My family is kind of scattered all over the world and I didn't hear anything back so I assumed there wasn't anything. Yesterday I saw my sister for the first time in 2 years and she brought me a package from my uncle with a box of cufflinks and this:


I'm not sure if the bracelet is original but the watch is his 25 year service watch and is inscribed with my grandfathers name, his company name and the date, 1974. Not hugely valuable, but sentimentally priceless.

It seems to be keeping good time. I'm going to have it serviced and probably get a leather band for it.

Wonderful story, Mike.

My grandfather's Tissot Seastar Seven Auto in 18K. Much like yours, Mike, but priceless nonetheless. 1971. Keeps good time after a healthy service. Given to me by my father. I'll give it to my son when he gets interested in vintage watches.



My Christopher Ward Malvern Auto. After two weeks wear, I'm liking it a lot. +/- 2/3 seconds a day and very comfortable to wear.

50%+ off Glashutte Original at RowNine.com. Rownine.com is a similar store to Gilt, which is a members only boutique and here is an invite link: http://www.rownine.com/invite/bluewindscar@hotmail.com Really tempted on the GO Senator Navi going for $2,925.

I thought this might be the best area to pose this question.

I am looking at buying either an Omega Speedy 3570 or 3573 in the next few months. Does anyone have an idea if I ask for an AD rec on timezone or a similar site, what the standard discount is for this watch? I usually buy from one place in Boston, but they are no longer carrying Omega.

That has to be one of the most beautiful watches I've seen here. Gorgeous in its simplicity and timelessness

Nice shirt, too.

Breguet 5207

This model from the Classique line is a beauty. I love the off-center dial, and watching the retrograde seconds hand snap back was a treat. Unfortunately, this model didn't fit so well on my wrist, so I sold it off after a year to fund another purchase. Still, it's one of my all-time favorites (to admire, not to wear).
