    Hi everyone. I am a long-time lurker who just signed up. This forum is an incredible resource and I appreciate the community.

    By way of introduction, here is Dad's 1954 2767-3 SC bumper which was his daily wearer since his brother bought it at a US Army PX in Germany in the late 50's. He just gave it to me as his hand tremors/shaking makes operation of the crown impossible for him (hence the lost crown). omega_2672.jpg

    Sorry about your dad. Hope he's still able to manage alright otherwise.
    You (and he) are fortunate though; many heirloom watches (like mine) only seem to show up after the wearer has already passed. :(

    Welcome to the funny farm.

    A word of advice, just take the watch, put in a drawer (preferably with socks) and forget it.

    On the other hand, if you manage to get your watch serviced (with a nice new crown), and enjoy wearing/winding (you can wind autos)/looking at/stroking/sleeping next to etc etc............you will become hooked and on the road to becoming a vintage watch tragic.

    Good Luck with that.

    PS: Forgot to say, you should get your Dad a nice simple quartz watch so he doesn't feel "undressed".

    ;)

    Got dad a new watch and he is doing just fine apart from the tremors. The repair is underway so too late to turn back now.
