A Special Daytona...
.... This is a special Daytona... do not search for errors on the dial, or special bezel or anything could pass through your mind. It’s a Ceramic Daytona like the others, but for me it’s a special one. My father some years ago ordered 2 Daytonas: a white ...
What a touching story
To have on your wrist such an important token and connection to your father. Glad to hear it will stay firmly in your collection and on your wrist forever. There is nothing that can replace the memories of family, and nice knowing you will be reminded of ...
Luca you made my heart melt
I think you should never sell both as it was your father who ordered them That is a powerful sentiment that is priceless Enjoy your Daytona and I’m sure your dad is with you always
A moving story Luca.
I’m sure your papa is absolutely delighted looking down to see you wearing his watch! Wear in good health, and keep the great memories fresh! All the very best, Niall
First, I am sorry for your loss....

Dear Luca I’m touched by your post and sharing such private affairs. It comes to show the strength of this forum: it allows all of us to share such things in good fairy and trust. It also shows that no watch is simply a watch, but often a tangible item re...
Cheers to your dad Luca!
My father passed away two years ago. I was fortunate to inherit almost all of his watches. Every time I wear one of his watches, I like to think that this little object was in touch with his wrist even before I was born. Then I feel I’m in touch with him ...
Thanks and I wish you the same Luca
You know why I like this place? (Please, note that I didn’t say forum) Because you find a place with real people with whom you can share real personal experiences. I will think both our Fathers are taking care from heaven of us and our children, and smile...
We say hermano
Have a nice weekend with your beautiful family hermano Luca. René
