Just got back my Rolex that belonged to my dad: it needed a good service after all these years. After a replaced crystal and bezel, it looks brand new. Also waiting for my AP Star Wheel to come back from the same watchmaker. It's still my favourite time piece. I wore the Sea Master down south for the wedding since I needed something to snorkel and dive with.
Bro, funny you mention Rolex & Dad. I had a Rolex once, but sold it within a year. Every time I wore it, I just thought of my Dad's generation. I think the same thing about Cadillac, Lincoln, Hart Schaffner Marx et al... my Dad's generation.
If my Dad had left me a watch, I would cherish it as I know you do. I'm excited you are getting your Piguet serviced. This is truly one of the great watches in the world, period. ( envy!)
See you soon.
Okay, full disclosure... I may be becoming my Dad's generation.
I went to pick up a ring my wife was getting work done on and saw a watch that caught my eye. I tried it on and then bought it. I was even shaking my head, much less my wife.
Bought the Rolex Datejust II black Roman dial with a smooth bezel. I really think it was the smooth bezel that caught my eye. Very clean juxtaposed against the Roman dial.
All this and I have a ' young' man in one of my wine groups pushing me to test drive a Cadillac something something like he owns.
