Hi, and welcome to your new forum

Hi folks. I think there are a bunch of us interested in both guns and watches. I hope this is a popular place and we can all enjoy it. Good luck!

In memorium

This was a Glycine navigation watch.

This particular model was only made for 1 year,

It fell 3 stories down an elevator shaft.

And while unknown to me that the case was warped got dunked in the Atlantic Ocean.

Before I had a chance to do any thing about it it looked like this.

I threw it in a junk drawer and after 20 years decided to throw it out.

I shook it and it started keeping perfect time.

Sadly it was beyond repair.

When I was a teenager I had a few watches.

When I was in m 20s I had a bunch of watches. The store I worked at carried Fossil; I always grabbed the nice ones when they hit the counter.

I stopped wearing watches altogether about ten yrs ago.

Bought one today. Funny that this forum is open today

Thanks for the watch forum. There's been more than a few times over the years I've looked around for info regarding watches.
