    Does your watch have a story? What is it?

    I was talking with a coworker about our wristwear and I shared that I bought my watch after I'd promised myself that if I hit a stretch goal at work, I'd reward myself with a "real" watch. He shared that he just really liked the watch he bought.

    Which camp do you fall into? Does the watch you're wearing have a story, or did you see something you liked and bought it?

    Some have a story, some don't. One was a gift for finishing University. Several others I bought because of personal achievements. Some I just bought because I liked the watch and they could be had for decent discounts.

    Does your watch have a story? What is it?

    Birth Year Watch? loved the idea of a birth year watch but not the idea of getting something like a rolex where only a WIS could tell one year from another.

    ended up finding the Omega Calypso I (1981), only made for one year, the Calypso II in 1982 and Calypso III in 1983.

    Option 1 for some watches, option 2 for others. There should be an option 3 in the Poll, for both.

    I realize some people have many watches that may represent a gamut of significance. How about the watch you're wearing right now?

    I think all have mine have some story. Some more than others but everything has something.
