This is the watch I wear the most. A Breitling Blackbird Chronograph that was gifted to me by my dad. The money value is not that much but the emotional value is definitely big.
I've had it on a bracelet for several years, last week I've changed it to black silicone strap
I’d have to say this Bucherer my Great-Grandfather got in Lucerne Switzerland in 1975 for my Grandfather. It has been passed down like a quality timepiece is meant to be.
I've been through a lot with this one on my wrist, over forty years.
My late great uncle’s Seiko. He was a great guy who did a lot for women‘s health as a physician and was an admirable person overall. It was actually tucked away for years after he passed until I found it in a drawer. I wear it occasionally and it is usually my dress watch at weddings. Certain family members see It and know I’m wearing the ‘Uncle Eddy’. It also wears like a dream at 36mm and the dial is beautiful and has no business being as good as it is. My one watch buddy jokingly calls it my ‘Patek’.
Welcome to W/C. Its not original but a retro reminds me of the tough 80s days growing up. I lost both my parents this year. I were this same on there passing and it kept me together. Reminds how tough they raised me.
I work to buy watches, more specifically: Tudor BB58 blue dial
