So this week I was told an interesting story about a watch and why it holds such special sentiment with its owner.
It's not because The Rolex Submariner 116610LV, better known as the ‘Hulk’ thanks to its green dial and bezel, was discontinued by the horological giants in 2020 leaving the aftermarket in a frenzy and driving prices through the roof. No, it's much more emotionally driven than that.
So after some short discussions about this owner's collection, turns out, a while back, he suffered a major setback with his health. When I say major, I mean literally life-threatening - like dead three times before being successfully resuscitated. During the process of resuscitation, his Hulk was damaged and markings are still there as a lasting reminder of this traumatic experience. He said he would never ever have it polished. I guess with a scare like that, there is no better reminder that life is fragile, short, and meant for LIVING!
I was wondering if any of you guys have any stories to tell - of course I'm hoping there are some frankly, less life-threatening tales to be told, however, it would be wonderful to hear why your watches mean so much to you. If you have the time, I'd love to hear from you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, why not make some more memories with one of these little gems handpicked from our newest stock? Go on - life is too short after all.
