    A beauty...and even more so because of its family connection to you. ( And I really dig those Breguet hands. ) :) :thumbsup:

    Great-looking pocket watch.

    now if you use it, are you still going to wear your watch on your wrist?

    I'm definitely going to use it. I just need to buy a nice gold chain for it first. No, I won't wear my Sub while using the pocket watch. The Sub will have those days off. :thumbsup:

    Thanks everyone! I'm going to order a chain for it today. I kept it in my pocket yesterday and left the Sub at home - he appreciated the day off. He's back to work today, though. :thumbsup:

    I just ordered this from a Web site. It's 14k gold filled and made in the USA, just like the pocket watch. :thumbsup:
