These are my wristwatches:

A 10K gold filled ELGIN Self-winding Schockmaster which was gifted to my Great-Grandfather following his retirement in 1957. It is engraved on the back. Unfortunately, the original bracelet had to be replaced with the current leather band. My secondary timepiece.

A ROLEX Datejust 1601 with a 18k Fluted gold brezel c. 1961. It was my Grandfather's, a banker who had a friend of his pick it up in the late 60s in Switzerland. The bracelet is after market, as the original bracelet was too small, due to the large amount of weight my grandfather lost in his later years due to illness, and the lost links from the no longer manufactured riveted style bracelets. My primary timepiece, even with its tendency to stop and start.

An INVICTA prodiver with after market leather band. It was my first automatic, a birthday gift. It serves as my beater, worn on trips and when working outside, or other times when I need a very accurate, very tough watch.

An INVICTA stainless steel Chronograph with 3 timezone feature. A gift from my sister's ex-boyfriend, who, as a radio sportscaster, was gifted it when he went to commentate on one of those NBC sports shows. A bulky watch, but I love it.

A CITIZEN Eco-Drive. I love the concept of a solar driven watch, and it was my first high quality wristwatch. I don't wear it often, but I love it.

If you haven't guessed, I prefer automatics

My Pocket watches:

A DANBURY Quartz pocket watch. Nothing special, accept that I had my name engraved on it. Love it.

A MAB 17 Jeweled mechanical pocket watch. I purchased it for 15 GBP at a cheap souvenir store. At first, I figured it would last like a day, but took a gamble. It actually works very well. It is attached to an Albert chain (I removed the other side of it, as it got in the way), which I purchased from a Pennsylvania watch store, where it was made. The Attached Fob was my grandfather's, a recognition of his time as editor of his college newspaper.
