PP 5227R — Dedicated to my dad on father’s day — He would not have approved in words, but his eyes would have spoken differently. Love you, you stubborn, cranky bastard. We’ll meet again someday.
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads on the Forum!
I'm wearing this watch today in remembrance of my dear Dad who passed away just ten days ago. Over the past five years or so this watch became one of his favourite possessions, and he wore it daily, up to the final hours of his life.
Objectively speaking, this watch is a bit of a monstrosity at 46mm+ and is something I would never choose for myself. But my Dad absolutely loved this watch and loved talking about its techiness: solar-charged, radio-synced, etc. And my Dad was one of the original techies. He was the first in his family to leave the four-generation farmstead and go to University, eventually earning a doctorate degree. He worked for much of his career in the defense industry, but not on the engineering side: he worked initially in contract management and then became adept at running and programming the room-sized computers that were used in the 60s and 70s. He programmed in COBOL and FORTRAN. I remember when he took me on a tour of one of his computer installations and pointed out a hard disk drive that could store up to 1-Megabyte of data! (less than the storage requirement of a single iPhone image), and the whole apparatus was the size of a washing machine.
Of course, my feelings are still raw from losing our Dad so recently but wearing this watch helps me feel closer to him and helps soothe the pain of our loss. It is now one of my favourite possessions, just as it was once his.

No...they're looking at this absolutely super excellent watch I'm photographing!
