What a father leave a son?

How about a watch that never quite seems to lose its value? 

An English gentleman found a watch when he was clearing what his late father has left him. It is estimated that the watch was bought by the man’s father around 10 – 20 years ago for 10 pounds. The watch comes without a strap and it does not work very smoothly during winding. He then tried to auction off his watch and was informed that the watch sold for 56k pounds.

The watch’s value literally increased 5,500 times.  

What watch is it? It is a Rolex 17 Rubis Panerai 3636, which was used by frogmen of the Royal Italian Navy during WWII. The watch was developed by Panerai using a Rolex movement. 

What does this story tell you? 

First, auction is an amazing thing. It can help you discover the true value of things. 

Second, buy yourself, or your son a watch, be it a Rolex, a Bulova, a Panerai or a Seiko. It is one of the best things that can keep or even increase its value after years pass by.

I sometimes doubt whether these stories are true. However, what is true is that the value of a good watch never fades. Watches for divers are especially hot. Look at military Panerai or Comex Rolex.
These watches are for divers and carry a certain kind of glamor to men. Moreover, these watches are historically important.

How about if your father does not leave you a Rolex or a Panerai?

Never mind young man. Not every father can afford a Rolex. But I believe that most fathers want to make sure that his sons can. Do not blame your father if he leaves you a 1k HKD Seiko. Instead, wear it with pride because its value cannot be counted by any calculator.
