    Actually I did. A Detroit Free Press route, I delivered the papers at 6:30 every morning before school. A simple large apartment complex behind my back yard. I delivered those papers for over 6 years. I also purchased a new Honda 50 with that route. It was cool having money as a kid.

    35. Speedy Pro. Space dork, got a fat bonus with enough left over after a house reno. Have since sold the rest of my collection, thinking about moving my Railmaster for an FOIS or CK2998. Maybe a Gemini but those are scarce.

    I guess I'm a late bloomer...got my first Omega last year at age 57. Point in life that I decided to reward myself -- running my own business, fourth child off to a good college, 27 yr marriage...yes, I deserve a great watch!

    I was 30 when my uncle was in the hospital. He knew that I loved watches and would come over to my place quite often to talk about them. When he got sick I would go visit him every other day if not daily. One day he slid me an old omega box, inside of it was his 69 seamaster that my aunt bought him for his birthday in 1969. He rarley wore it and it shows. He got out of the hospital a couple months after that, he called me to tell me that he compiled his watches in a bag and was going to drop them off soon. He passed a week later. A couple months after he passed his daughter brought the bag. I looked through it and was shocked to find the original instruction/ info booklet for the omega at the bottom of the bag. I love this watch and I will always be thankful for all the time I got to spend with my uncle. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him. Name:  E3CC236D-AC8E-4435-A3E3-A84309036E2C_1580544615668.jpeg

    These are the watches that are the most special to me, the ones with a family connection, especially when it's a lovely watch that you will actually wear. You honor your uncle well and I'm sure you think of him every occasion you have to check the time. Thanks for your story and that's a beautiful piece.

    I got my first Omega, a new Aqua Terra Quartz that was on sale at an AD, when I was 42. It was my first "nice" watch, and I bought it to celebrate a life moment. At the time spending nearly a grand on a watch seemed decadent. (How little did I know what lay ahead for me!) When I wore it that first day, I felt like James Bond. My life hasn't been the same.

    I stumbled into an Omega, a 1999 Seamaster 300m (the James Bond watch) and it sparked my love for watches overall. Previously all I’d really known was Fossil.

    At 36 I got an Aquaterra and then at 37 I sold a Tudor Black bay to get a Seamaster. Will likely sell the AT this year to get a Speedmaster Racing.
