I think it needs to become your watch, quick!
I bought a Seamaster chrono (self-wind) back in 2002, brand new. It was £1100.
10 years down the line, I see the exact same watch now retails at £2200 - with good second-hand ones going for what I originally paid for mine, or a bit more. Hence, I think it's the only consumer item I've ever bought that has appreciated in value, amazing!
I have worn this watch every single day since purchase, which means it's been put on and removed from my wrist around 3,500 times. And hence, it's been ON my wrist since then for about 43,000 hours...
It still looks like new. It still performs faultlessely. And my particular example is stunningly good at timekeeping for a mechanical - in fact I can't remember the last time I had to adjust the time - it just stays perfect. Thinking about it, the last time I had to adjust the time was when I was on holiday a few months ago. I popped in it the hotel safe and left it there for a couple of days, so it stopped. Since then, it's just 'wear and forget'.
Despite supposedly having to service these Omegas every 5 years, I didn't, and it had it's first service last year (courtesy of a PH'er actually).
When he handed it back, I had had new strap pins fitted as a service / precautionary measure, but apart from that, he told me the movement inside looked and functioned like new...
So. Omega. I recommend
