Still wearing the Ladies' Oyster Perpetual Date I received as a gift in 1985.
2013 feels like a creepy uncle who keeps trying to kiss me. I want to dodge it as much as possible!
Last time I landed at O'Hare I reckon they off loaded my luggage before the plane touched down. I got it, but in pieces.
Early in my career I worked as a facility technician at an international airport here.
There are many places where luggage conveyors pass through unattended spaces. Too tempting for some.
Sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you were at least financially compensated.
I can not show you my Rolex - bought a Oyster Datejust in 1982. 6 years later - in 1988 mys son was born and, as you see on the picture, he always had an eye for it. (just look where his little hand is!)
So - when he graduated in 2005 - I passed it on to him, and now he wears it with great pride and joy in London town.

"There I stood at the bar, wearing a Mae West, no jacket, and beginning to leak blood from my torn boot. None of the golfers took any notice of me - after all, I wasn't a member!'
Thank you. Seems the lume has a nice patina. Was it still Radium, or had they already changed to H3?
Radium I think - not sure. It is a very low contrast dial when wearing it. A black face would have been better and glare from the domed acrylic doesn't help.
Difficult to read at a glance and harder under water.
The bracelet is wrong, but the correct riveted one is outside my discretionary budget right now. I have a Nato (ish) strap, but its way too long.
