I have recently begun searching for a watch to commemorate my first father’s day since my son was born. My goal for this watch is to wear it regularly but not every day then give it to my son on his 25th birthday. After some searching I decided on the 2254.50 black faced Seamaster. This watch appears to be a classic that will survive the test of time well.
I am interested in other peoples answers to this question. If you were purchasing a watch to hand down what would you pick, taking into consideration avaliability of parts and service over an extended period of time?
