This watch is special to me because it is the only watch I own that is really worth something. I saved for it for 3 years and finally got it. When I wear this watch I feel like a million bucks. I look at it everyday and sometimes I wear it around the house just because I love the I feel when I'm wearing it. I love it. My wife says I'm strange. :b

I got this watch from Arnie (Arnie11). I was visiting Arnie and Linda, this past spring, and Arnie gave this to me . . . simply because I liked it (well, he did have 2 of them).

I was late to the "Lupah" game, and only purchased my first one about a year ago. As much as I began to like the Lupah, I couldn't get used to a leather strap. Being that the Lupah Bijoux is one of only 2-3 Lupah models on a bracelet, it was one that I always wanted. However, my collection began to take a turn before I was able to purchase one.

I have 2 Invicta watches left in my collection, and this Lupah Bijoux is by far my favorite. I don't see myself ever getting rid of it.

Thanks, Arnie! :c

Really wish I had more/better photos of this one. Truth be told I have not actually seen this watch in over a year and a half, it's been locked safely away in the bank safety deposit box right next to the pocket watch I got for graduation and the watch my Dad always wore.

This is the pocket watch that my great grandfather had in his pocket when he sailed to America in 1918 from Wales. I was told by my grandfather that it was given to him by his uncle a week before he left. There is actually no telling how old it really is, best guess is 100 years or so. My great grandfather left Wales mainly because he did not want to be a farmer like all of his family before him. So he struck out for America with this watch, $4 or so and his clothes. He didn't know anyone here, no job, nothing. He just knew he wanted a better life than what he could have in Wales. He found work in the shipyards in New York and worked his way up until he waspromoted toloadmaster. After he saved enough money and had bought a small house, he went back to Wales and proposed to my great grandmother and brought her back to America. The rest is history. He and my great grandmother had 11 children, 58 grandchildren and 143 great-grandchildren. How my grandfather came to have his watch is a mystery, but he passed it down to my Dad and when my Dad passed away when I was 18 years old it came to me. I will always cherish this watch because it represents at 4 generations of my family, and what helped America what it is today.I hope one day one of my daughters will pass it on to their children.
