Re: Nice Posting -- Watches with Emotional Value

Top on the list would be my father's Hamilton gr 972 pocket watch. His father gave it to him when he shipped off to India to fly the hump for the US Army Aircorps during WW-II. Dad had the back of the case engraved with some Sanskrit while in Calcutta. The watch was in bad mechanical shape from being in the Indian humidity and we restored it a few years ago. Except for the family history is is probably a couple hundred dollar watch has emotional value.
