    I'll be wearing this now that it's back from the Spa.

    Check out the rate of +/- 0 (doesn't get batter than that)

    On this date thirty years ago, my wife “surprised” me with this watch. I had convinced her that nobody ever buys himself a Rolex. We had looked at these on countless occasions, but I could never bring myself to take the heat for spending that much money.

    It’s a watch that I wore daily for over a decade; and even though others have been added over the years, it remains my sentimental favorite.

    So, that’s what I’m wearing today…

    It's a fabulous watch, and an even better story behind it!

    You’re referencing my Hammy Niner Fife Zero [circa 1927] which I wore yesterday for Church...$105 back then is about $1,400 to $1,500 today. I’m not sure if the Niner Fife Zero could be considered as the Rolex of its time...but it was recognized as a high grade railroad pocket watch.

    Yeah, I guess that price isn't too Rolex-ey. Your CPI calc is spot-on. But beautiful watches nevertheless.

    1954 bumper, younger than me and, unlike me, doesn’t look much different after 65 years. Certainly much more accurate than it’s wearer.
