Great post from the Dive Watch Forum:

Your previous post regarding watches you’ve had forever. This watch was my high-school grad present from my Dad in 1971, and I’ve had it ever since (obviously). It has been run over by a car, shot at, lost for four months in the snow (I went back later with a borrowed metal detector in the Spring). It’s literally been through Hell, and I will never part with it. It cost $95.00 brand new, and isn’t worth much more than that now but in terms of ‘priceless’ possessions, it’s at the top of the list.
