    Sentimental value exceeds monetary value.

    First I’m still blessed to have my father.
    With that my father has always been a hard worker, now retired but his family always came first. He wasn’t a big watch guy unfortunately. He still wears his $20 Walmart stretch band Timex. However for his 50th birthday , he is now 76,My 3 brothers and I gifted him a watch. He wore it maybe a handful of times. It sat in the jewelry box. Today I asked for it, if he’d let me wear it. Without hesitation he said yes. It may not be a high end but it has meaning to me and meaning to my father and that sometimes exceeds everything else.

    All things considered, it's the most beautiful watch I've seen all day.

    The gold Longines in my avatar pic was inherited from my mom's dad. That one is staying with me.

    Dad gifted me a Seiko SNE031 for Christmas -- not huge $$$ value, but a sentimental keeper, for sure.

    Dad has a gold Hamilton pocket watch that was his dad's. I actually hope it goes to my brother since I got the other grandfather keepsake watch, but I won't refuse it if he defers...
    Watches are life. Live to Watch, Watch to Live. Do you even Watch, bro?

    That’s an awesome story and I am sure that it has more value than any expensive watch that you have in your collection.

    It will bring good memories each time you wear it.

    At the end of the day, it's really all about the sentiment. Sometimes it's an occasion the watch commemorates, sometimes it's an achievement it honors, and sometimes it's a relationship we treasure.

    I wore my dad's watch with pride for years until that thing gave up the ghost. Must have been worth no more than $40 but it meant the world.

    That one sentence encapsulates what it’s all about Bri.

    A very timely reminder of the important things in life - vast majority of stuff we buy are meaningless trinkets.
