  • Two Speedmasters

    Thought I would share a photo of two Speedmasters. The one on the right is mine . I bought it about 20 yrs ago when I got my first fulltime job. The shop had two so I bought the one on the left as a present for my father as he had always been into watches but being a good father had always put other things first .
    My watch has had a restful life , but my dads never leaves his wrist. Its there when he paints , cuts wood , fixes the car ,and it has the scars to show it. He has cracked the glass several times , and dropped it more than once ( needed a new main spring ) but he continues to wear it daily. I know he treasurers it and I am glad he uses it .

    Your Dad must be like mine. He was given a Tudor on his 21st, last year I brought it up for Nick to ser ice and we found roof paint on it and mud under the clasp.

        couldn't agree more , but sometimes when I see the speedy splattered in paint I think I should have given him a G shock

          very cool - love seeing watches used. interesting patina on your Dad's vs. yours. Assuming he spends quite a bit of time outside.

            Nothing better than a well worn watch IMO better still when they keep ticking :thumbup:
