This is only slightly off topic. My father received this gold pocket watch on the occasion of his retirement from a mining company railroad.

This is how it looks in our display cabinet:
Very nice pocket watch.

I love pocket watches, and own several. I have never been able to wear anything on my wrist, it will always get damaged or torn off. Never wear jewelry either, rings, necklaces, etc.

Sent my SMPc to the AD boutique to send to Omega to see if I can get my watch covered by warranty. The AD at first wanted $650 for the bezel and another $100 for the installation if warranty will not cover it. This warranty has about 6 months left of life out of 3 years.

The face of the watch is a solar panel that converts any light to electricity which is stored in a capacitor in the watch. These watches tend to go forever as long as they have some source of light.

IMHO, you should buy a watch if you want to know the time - anything else is almost irreverent!

And that certainly includes "vanity" purchases!
