    Evening switch to my Dad's Hamilton Ross and Waltham Ruby since it's the Super Bowl. I forgot to wear my Dad's watches on what would have been his 106th birthday which was last January 26th...wearing his watches on his birthday (since his passing in 1996) is a yearly tradition that I've been trying to faithfully accomplish. However, one of the many father-son things that we did together was watch the Super Bowl...so I'm wearing his watches tonight.

    I miss my Dad...that's him in the background pic in the pics below...and that's his watch/cuff link case pictured below as well.

    Mine says hi! I wore this watch for three weeks in 2012, during a three-week trip from Amsterdam to Rome, the first week travelling by train. I chose this one out of my collection because of the steel case, and the melamine dial. And because it would be easy to repair if anything happened. I found that European trains generally run right on time.

    Still in holiday mode, hence the lack of watch variation. Will be coming of the wrist for a little bit while I do some painting;)

    What a great way to honor his memory! Very, very cool that not only do you have cherished memories of spending time together, but also have his watches which have likely helped fuel your passion. Heirlooms that I am sure will be passed on to your children who will treasure them as much as you do! Great post, thanks for sharing!
