Well, there's a reason I didn't post the photo and just the link. From a percent to purchase standpoint, it will likely retain it's value more than any other watch in this thread. Therefore, it's less frivolous than it may seem. Should we ever fall on hard times, that thing can fetch us some mortgage payments, a Casio.. not so much.

It makes perfect sense to me as an heirloom. Especially as it measures the passage of time. I'm happy to have my grandfather's.

I remember you telling me the story of how that watch came to be in your possession.

-couldn't really have a watch thread without that link.
