    Re: Watches for dear people

    My son in law helped me with an electrical issue on my race car, after we were done I told him I would build him a watch for helping me.
    He was always interested and has always liked my Russian watches.
    I let him pick out all the parts and I put it together for him. He really likes his 53 cased sidewinder I made him he hasn't ever had a mechanical watch before. I think It is even more special that his father in law assembled the watch just for him from the parts he picked out with my own two hands. I feel the whole experience has brought us both closer together.

    My wife will only wear a small watch. Anything large enough to read is too big. I bought her a 1990's Tag Heuer quartz. She wears it daily and gets the time from her phone.

    I gifted a big zero to a woman I'm seeing - I told her it made me think of her as it was quirky and unique - she loves it!

    Great thread! I love the idea to share our passion with others... Imo its a little bit easier with women as you can explain watches as jewellery to them and most of them like that stuff. :D

    I got this one for my wife. Made it manual wind for the sake of thinness. She learned to wind it and wanted a bracelet. I am not 100% satisfied with the fit and will try to make hollow endlinks for it.
