Life-saving Watch

I am just watching the Antiques Road Show on BBC, a gentleman brought in his grandfather’s pocket watch. I don’t know what type of watch it is, but that is a bullet lodged in it during the First World War. I know we say every scratch adds to the stories of our watches, but this, wow!

That is amazing!

That's a scratch I would gladly accept.

·

Little bit of spit and polish and that will rub out .

·

As a military history buff, that is awesome!

·

I'll have to watch it on iPlayer. Been a bit busy with DIY today so I've missed everything.

His clock didn’t run out that day, the pocket watch on the other hand….

Some Crunchers here would have knelt down in the muddy trench, holding the watch like a dying puppy and said, "it should've been me," before letting out a wail of agony.

·

That's awesome and would be displayed front and centre

It was shown alongside a lady’s collection of her grandfather’s items from the First World War; he was also shot, the bullet lodged in a pocket book, she had the book and the bullet, amazing.

Wristwatches are more comfortable to wear on a war they said
