Some timepieces really deserve more love...

Have you ever been wanting to have a watch that you really want, but after being able to own it, you tried to find another "new target" then accomplished it, then that watch that you really want got replaced by that "new target" and eventually forgotten? Then the cycle continues?

Well, for me, it happened and it's this piece.



It was bought for its significant history and surprisingly gone completely under the radar for most of the people despite its history, and I had that joy of taking its clip off only to wind the watch each morning until it was replaced by that "new target".



Well, then when I was wearing this piece again, I started to realize again how I missed this piece....



And why I made it to the "target" it in the first place.




Thus that cycle of joy (or hell) in the morning begin again....


Then, I wonder what's your "forgotten" watch that perhaps you kept it back in the drawer or safe that you "often" forgot to wear for a long time? Or, does anyone have that kind of timepiece that was a blast in the past but then gone further under the radar by most of the people? I'll be waiting for your replies. Thanks!


Best
