    It's been a while since we've had a watch thread so...

    Found this over the weekend.
    I have boxes of stuff left from my Dads house that I have yet to go through. This was in one of his boxes.

    Inscribed on the back is:
    "Bureau of ships
    US Navy
    Comparing Watch
    10612-1943"

    Inside it has the usual markings along with a U.S. Govt stamp.

    We'll see if we can get going again

    "Five long years he wore this watch, up his ass. Then, he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you."

    Stumbled on this a little while ago. Poor man's navitimer. Quartz. Keeps great time and helps me convert exchange rates and figure out my ETA here in the pacific.

    I no longer have this -- it was lost or stolen during a move - but my all-time favorite watch was this Cartier tank watch from the 1970s. Delicate and tasteful.

    I've never found a watch since that I can truly tolerate wearing. I suppose I should go find another Cartier on eBay!
