I hope this is the correct page to start in. I'm new to the site, if mods say it should be elsewhere so be it! This is an interesting question IMO. I have several keepsakes I'd save, but which watch would I grab if I could just grab one? In perusing my modest collection of contemporary (1980-2016?) watches, which would I grab as I fled? It only comes down to three, really: Sweetheart's gift on my birthday. Damn I love this: My reliable 20-year old daily, which I really like. Reliable as an anvil, and just as strong: Or my most recent acquisition, which is a true classic tool watch: Ya' know, it is really hard to choose. Sadly, and apologies to all Speedies everywhere, but I might go for the IWC. It does everything I need: Tells time w/ accuracy, has a chrono function (great for cooking, which I enjoy,) and has a date. My mind is sometimes discordant, like when signing a check (what day is it? Actually, what year is it?) Well, day and date count too. I suppose I'll remember the Covid-19 epidemic of 2019... So, which one, and why?
