what watch do you grab on your way out the door??????????:scared:You can take only one. It doesn't have to be your most expensive one, just the one that can't be replaced. Me first: I'd grab my Dad's gold Hamilton which he received as a graduation present from his parents in the 1940's. It's by far not my most expensive watch, but the most irreplaceable one for sure!!!!

luckily for me I have one of those leather tubes for 5 watches so I'd grab that on the sprint out of the door. If I had to grab just one.... then I'd grab my grandfathers old Moeris. I'd leave all of mine behind.

Mr Dear Moderator, you didn't answer the question!!!
Sure I did - I couldn't take just one watch. :001_rolleyes::laugh: The point is moot anyway since roughly half my collection is in a safety deposit box at any point in time.

And :001_tt2:you also violated your #1 rule!!!!!
That rule applies to situations like asking for authenticity or value of a watch. :wink:

I'd grab this old beater 1967 Bulova. I was wearing it when I graduated from college, when my wife and I got married and when my son was born. It doesn't look very good any more but it still runs great.



If I had another second I'd grab this 1970 Accutron that I had on when my daughter was born and which was cut from my arm when I was removed from a car with the Jaws of Life following a head on collision with a drunk driver.

Very nice, vintage Bulovas and Omegas, right up my alley!!!:001_wub: Not well versed on Accutrons, but I have about a dozen old Bulovas which keep going and going........

I'd take my Hamilton Khaki Chrono because it's my first "real" watch (the one that got me started in this sickness) and it was a 40th birthday present from my wife.

The Clarendon-Linden geological fault (see Wikipedia) isn't that far away from me, so this is a very real possibility. With apologies to dad's Gruen, I'd have to be practical and grab my Eco-Drive.

Easy decision, my grandfathers Ultra-Chron because nothing else means as much to me which makes it totally irreplaceable.

She's a beauty!!!!! I like the shape of the case, early 70's??? I think I see one of our Mods drooling!!:001_wub:

Thank you, :thumbup1:

The watch was made in 1970 and as for the mod drooling I think he would be more interested in the dial because he has already informed that the crosshair dial is his favourite style in the Ultra-Chron.

so Rob,

do you grab the watch box and then out in the street go "dang, I could use a drink" or do you grab the vino to get over leaving the watch behind?

:wink:

That's easy....the wine has been drank. :wink:


Open the lid and show us what's inside

It's what we Canadians call a Two-Four. :biggrin:









Cheers.
