    Which watch will you always keep, and why?

    Which one(s) will you never get rid of, and why?

    For me, I'll always keep my fathers Rolex GMT Master, which survived two wars and keeps on ticking.



    And my Hamilton Jazzmaster, which was the first good watch I bought to celebrate the birth of my daughter.



    What about ya'll?

    Also, a couple of vintage pieces handed down to me by relatives and friends and my Rado that I bought in my early twenties that started this passion. It won't leave the box even though it gets very little wrist time.

    My vintage 1680 Sub. Bought 12, 13 years ago when I didn't have all the real life expenses I have now :(

    If I sold it, it would be darn hard to buy another one at the rate Rolex pricing works (to quote Buzz Lightyear: "To Infinity and Beyond!").

    Awesome vintage Mido, but I would love to hear more about your "wooden" watch.

    Nothing sentimental or anything, just a watch that I use for anything and everything (in my world), comfort and fit bar none and killer aesthetics . . .

    The DJ was given to me by my dad after I graduated college. The Omega I found in his drawer after he passed away.

    This one, I have a huge love for the diver design & this watch is the most impressive dress diver IMO.
