I am still shaking, went to see my Dad this afternoon he said I have an early birthday present for you. View attachment 79154
All of my birthdays have indeed come at once. He has not worn it in a long time and it's been kept in his safe, he prefers to wear his techy Casios.
Can't quite get my head around what I have on my wrist as I type, as it is a watch I could never have afforded.
I will treasure it for the rest of my life.

As soon as I have stopped shaking I will update with better photos.

Thanks for reading.

Congrats man! I couldn't be happier for you.

What a gift to receive, but I'm sure it's all the more special because it was your fathers.

What a beauty!

WOW!!!! Super-huge congrats, Desk Diver (and of course happy birthday)!

I'm sure it still doesn't seem real. What a treasure, and what a special reminder of just what a special, loving, generous father you have!

Thanks for sharing your story and picture!

That's fantastic. I hope my boys react the same when I hand them the omegas I got for each of them when they were born

Cherish it and do the same with that very watch (hand it down to your kid)

Thanks Danny, my Dad shares the same passion for watches as I do but he prefers his techy Casios these days. It's always watch talk when we get together.
The GMT Master has been in his safe for the last 2 years and was only very seldom worn before that.
A watch like this needs to be treasured and worn, which I will do daily baring when I am at work.
I am still overwhelmed by the sentiment.
Unfortunately my son does not share the same passion and can't really understand my love of watches.
My wife couldn't understand my excitement, it's just a watch she said.
I have it on at the moment and it is running sweet.
I will post some proper camera shots as soon as I have time.

Thank you for your kind words. Gary aka desk_diver
