100 years of Dunhill- A lifetime of friendship

A year and a half ago, I was on a quest. I was searching for a tank-style watch that wouldn鈥檛 break the bank. My journey led me to a Reddit post about the Dunhill Centenary, a watch released in the 90s at Basel to celebrate Dunhill鈥檚 100th anniversary. Intrigued, I scoured Chrono24 and found one in pristine condition. Without hesitation, I bought it and cherished it for a year.

This watch is a marvel. Its dial is a subtle silver adorned with Breguet-style numerals and blue hands. The way light dances on the crystal adds a beautiful complexity to the silver dial. It kept perfect time and became a trusty companion.

When I traveled to Sri Lanka, I took the Dunhill with me. During my trip, I reconnected with a friend who shared my passion for watches. He admired the watch, and it fit his wrist perfectly. That night, I realized that this would make a meaningful gift. The next day, I showed him my collection and presented him with the watch.

Now, this Dunhill Centenary continues its journey. It鈥檚 not just a timepiece but a token of friendship, being enjoyed across the Atlantic as my friend and his son explore London & Europe. A watch that commemorates 100 years of Dunhill now also celebrates a bond that will endure. Pass it on. Cheers.

Go ahead and put in the #dunhill tag for that coveted Dunhill badge. It is an usual watch: two hander and very interesting Art Deco numerals. Also, it is a great story of friendship.
