this weekend (Sunday the 11th) marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War in 1918.
Tomorrow I will be wearing this watch in recognition. It is a 1914 Tavannes (Cyma), centre seconds Doctors watch in a Dennison case, spanning the start and end of WWI, and of course is now 104 years old. I only recently finished the restoration - which was tricky.
Two weeks ago I wore the watch to the Wrights Hill fortress, which is a coastal battery overlooking Wellington Harbour. This photo is from the tunnels underneath the mountain.
Please post your trench watch plans. I'd love to see what people might put on to mark the day.
