This yr, we are revisiting a few of our favourite tales about dads and dad-like figures for Father’s Day. Heartwarming, humorous, or exciting, those posts spotlight the non-public and familial connections round watches and timekeeping and are value a 2nd learn.
Each and every circle of relatives has its quirks. In mine, it is purchasing and gifting two-tone Rolex Datejust watches (this may provide an explanation for my staunch two-tone support). In one shape or some other, you’ll discover a two-tone Datejust someplace in my circle of relatives. Is that bizarre by itself? No, in fact no longer – it is an undeniably widespread watch which reached its apex within the eighties. The bizarre part, so far as my circle of relatives’s involved, is the how of all of it.
In the spirit of Father’s Day, I wish to proportion a tale I wrote final yr – a tale of my father, his father, my brothers, and I. It is a story … of two-tone Datejusts.
