    This is the watch that I was wearing when my 30 year old son was born. I bought this in the Travis AFB BX in 1983 or 1984.
    OH WOW!! A true classic man. Its wonderful!!!!
    I love watches. I often remember what watch i was wearing on special occarions or trips. Watches are like guns and underwear to me. Very personal and why would a person ever leave home withiut them all?
    I specifically choose which watch im going to wear daily. Yeah I have favorites I wear often but I chose to.

    The watch that I was wearing when I got married is up next. It’s not so much of a classic as this one was but it’s an older Seiko dress watch that my then fiancée bought for me. This is a bit more of a challenge in that the band is really fit well to the watch but has a broken clasp. The clasp on these are not available and the one I ordered is not a great fit. The band is just a tad too thick but I’ll figure it out somehow.

    Between 10/22s and playing with watches, I’m in a very different place this year than before. I’m really digging the whole watch thing though.

    If I cannot fix the band on this dress watch, I might give that option a try. Thanks.

    No problem. Some watches just never look right with aftermarket ones so thats why sometimes Ill have them made. But its also a way to make a watch take on a whole new persona. Its fun to accesorize!! (Jazz hands

    We do. It takes some time to get it right but when setup properly a system becomes unstable as the user stress level rises.

    I always suspected that and I do sincerely appreciate the honesty.
