    This is a very inspirational thread. i have a gold watch my father got as gift from his employer, a mining company, when he got his phd in geochemistry. When he retired he gave this watch to me. I really have to try to take a good picture of this watch and select my nicest knife for the photo. Maybe a Laquoile En Aubrac will do.

    In the meantime here is my current carry, knife and watch. I got this titanium wach as a gift from him when I graduated from the university, 29 years ago. It has been on my wrist every day since that. He is now 93 years old and most likely on his final days, you newer know at his age. He's still quite bright mentally but in a wheelchair.

    I edited an older thread title and merged a new thread with it.
    That's a beautiful old mantle clock!

    This world-time Casio is my newest watch. It's good fun.

    Looks like something Rod Taylor would’ve carried in The Time Machine...

    Thanks! It was my great grandfather’s work watch. He carried it with him to work everyday at the Elecrto-Motive plant. Unfortunately, no one saw fit to hold onto his pocket knife. :(
