What watch are you wearing today?

75 years of age? Nice, but I have one that is 101!

It is an Omega trench watch, 13 SOB Calibre movement, 36mm, owned by World War One officer enlisted in the Armed Forces and served two years in France around 1918 under General Pershing. This person was Warner T. Bonfoey of Oklahoma City, born February 24, 1894, in Unionville, Missouri, had a son who died in Korea, died in 1976 himself. The watch has a hinged case back and is in pure silver. I will need to find someone in Europe to get a heritage certificate (Omega does not have that service available in the US). Watch was made in 1916 based on movement number.

Thanks. I did some additional research on ancestry.com and it all checks out. It is either that, or someone took a generic estate sale watch, did a google search for a military serviceman's name, and then crudely engraved it on the case! But in reality this type of thing is done with rare submariners and other limited watches. I am sure that you have seen articles about Paul Newman's Paul Newman dial Daytona being found, with his wife engraving "Drive Carefully, Me". I hope that one is real because the history is very cool, indeed.

My Devon. This is a repeat as I posted a picture of this watch last year. I hope repeats are not frowned upon.

Picked up a new strap for my Navitimer in London the other day! Was ignored at the first two watch shops I stopped into (both had Breitlings) and managed to get help at the Breitling boutique.
