    I never would have guessed that was the original strap. It looks great on it though.

    Now THAT was funny!
    Hey, I'll trade you my "is it real?" Tudor for your "is it real?" Rollie!

    My daughter is now 21 months old and one of her first words was "watch." I had not even tried to teach her the word, but she had always grabbed whatever watch I was wearing. I like to think that she is a watch lover of her own accord.

    I bet it was fun seeing some of those "old friends" again. That's a great story!

    Very cool story!
    Sounds like you have a shoebox full of cool mechanical timepieces you can still go to in time of need
    (and that Omega is saweeet!!!)

    Thanks Man. My son showed up Sunday morning carrying my grandson Hunter in one arm and a
    box I recognized in the other. A little over 5 years ago when he got out of graduate school I
    let him go through my mechanical collection (before the purge) and take what he wanted... (and boy
    did he !)

    Well Sunday, as he handed me the baby he said, "Dad, why don't you take these back. All I wear is my
    AP Offshore and the Sinn Chronograph and you'll probably wear them more than I will." He bought both the
    AP and the Sinn himself and I think he feels good about wearing those. He did keep the Ebel Tarawa I gave
    him and said he wears that at least once a week.

    I had kept 3 or 4 mechanicals and they sit quietly at the back of the safe but now their wayward siblings
    have returned. Kind of a cool surprise.

    Kurt, I was either unaware or had forgotten you had that Graham.
    Wicked cool.
