    What would you do?

    Please, nice replies only, it was a Xmas present.

    Do you have kids? I would let them draw stuff on it and then wear it around from time to time for fun.

    I know my 5 year old would think it's pretty neat if I let him "design" my watch.

    Draw a PP logo on it, and sell it for 14k on ebay as a one of a kind vintage paper Calatrava.

    The sad thing is, this just might work...

    Even better.... Post it on the high end forum and ask "is the PP my kids gave me real"? Might look better than some of the other ones posted in the "is it real" threads.

    If you had a local artist in the area whose work you like, maybe commission them to create a mini-masterpiece. Might be a great way to change a fun little gift into something that turns into an honest-to-goodness, one-of-a-kind keeper.

    Alternatively, if you or your kids are into this sort of thing, this would be an interesting medium for autographs - particularly time/watch related ones..."Hey Mr. Daniels/Mr. Craig/Mr. Murphy/Mr. Genta, would you please sign my watch?" I know only a couple of those guys are still alive, and your kids probably wouldn't want Roland Murphy's autograph, but that the gist of the idea anyway.
