It was Christmas morning 1985. While sitting cross-legged on the basement mauve-colored high pile carpet next to the tinseled-out tree, I unwrapped a particularly square-boxed present…that from inside revealed a black textured plastic box which had printed on its bottom corner in gold lettering, “SEIKO”.
Hallelujah! Unto me was given that day my lovely all gold-tone, faceted crystal Seiko 6923-7099!
This is my oldest all original ‘daily wear’ watch, and frankly one of my most accurate and reliable time pieces. I’m astounded at how well it has aged over the last 37 years!
Show us your oldest daily wear watch you have owned since day one and tell us a little about it.
