I recently bought my man an antique watch as a very belated b'day present.  

I settled for this handsome specimen from Chopard, which dates back to around 1906.  Throughout the process of acquiring this watch I learnt so much about antique watches, and now have an unprescedented fascination and appreciation for them!  

What doesn't cease to amaze me is how watchmakers were able to fashion such precise mechanisms 100 years ago, and in its life, this watch has timed the rise and fall of so many world-changing milestones, events, movements, and celebrations.
