    By @Matty01 - "For a bit of a Father’s Day fun, I asked my 11-year-old daughter to evaluate her father's taste in horology, by ordering my watches according to her aesthetic purview. Many of us buy watches, or more accurately, justify our watch purchases by saying one day we'll pass them on to our sons and daughters. How often though do we actually stop and wonder if our own tastes line up with our children's at all?" [..]

    What a lovely idea and a great read. I am glad her birth year watch is also her first choice :thumbsup:

    Very nice. This "buying a watch for my kid" thing is a little crazy. Who knows what the kid will like someday. I guess you didn't drive back to the house looking for the watch on the way to the hospital either, like some people

    Yeah it’s a bit nuts- my take was if she doesn’t like it she can choose from the others- but it worked out alright… and erm, no, thé watch was the last thing on my mind on the way to the hospital… she didn’t even know about the watch until more than a decade after her birth
