Sometimes it's the little things

on Thu Oct 06 2016, 21:39
My brother in law... well one of them on MrsSteveB's side was down to today and once again I noticed he wasn't wearing a watch. His wife bought him a watch a couple of years back for Christmas... Turns out it was a Tachmeister on an integrated strap that had given up the ghost. So tonight I handed him this.



He thought it was just so he would know when dinner was. He tried to give it back after dinner, but I said no it's yours now. I told him that I wasn't sure what was worth more the strap or watch, but that it was vintage Swiss and Auto. You would have thought I had given him a Rolex. Talk about chuffed. Maybe I will get him a Sewor diver for Christmas and he will put me in his will bounce

It is nice to be nice . Maybe this was your way of passing on your good fortune from getting the Seiko you have wanted Smile
