    Your watch 50 years from now

    What manufacturers promise to restore any watch of their production regardless of model year?

    All I know is Omega, Zenith and PP of course.

    I doubt that I will be worrying too much about any of my watches in 50 years time - or anything else come to think of it

    I think anyone can claim something like this, but I only believe in one brand for longterm service-- Rolex. Even if RSC won't touch some watches over 30 years, it's easy to find parts and service for older models in almost any large town. For years, my favorite beater was my father's 1959-ish Thunderbird, and I've also got a 1966, gold DJ for a dress watch and never worry about service. I need to pick up the Thunderbird, today, from Chamosa Watch.

    Let your grandchildren figure out whether they would wear their inherited watches enough to warrant a very expensive watch restoration. The watches that are fashionable now may be the quaint pocketwatch of the future. Just buy watches because you will like and wear them now.

    Any mechanical watch can be serviced and kept running for a very long time by a competent watch repair shop. A factory service is not needed.

    50 years from now I'm going to throw all my current watches away and buy a hover-watch

    Better order now, I understand the list is getting long.
    I'm #349...
    I think pretty much any watch, other than belt drive or hydro-powered, will be repairable in the next 50+ years.
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.
