I fixed this watch for my good friend Hal, when he was in the hospital
He had worn it 60 years, since his wedding.
As soon as he came home, he asked for his watch back. Against my better judgement, I took it to him. A few days later, he passed away, and the watch disappeared (caregiver or nurse). I combed the house multiple times, but it was gone. Sadly not an uncommon event. It was engraved with his full name and street address on the back - one would think it might be hard to flip such a watch. His wife and kids were very upset (thankfully not with me).
