Cigar/Lifestyle: Watches do more than tell time.
Watches and cigars are great conversation pieces. An attractive timepiece and a fine cigar reminds many of a civil world of discourse, enjoyment and comrades. At least this is my image of cigars and watches.
I received my first watch for my seventh birthday , a Micky Mouse model with a red watch band. I was not yet proficient in telling time but with the watch strapped to my wrist, I learned how it was done very quickly.
Everyone I knew had at least one or two watches. There were the better quality brands which someone gave you as a gift such as Bulova, Waltham, Benrus and others. These watches were not for wearing every day. Most of us had Timex watches that were advertised as practical and rugged. ” Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking.”
Through the years my watch collection grew slowly with mostly inexpensive models filling my coffers. I fancied the Chrono and sports styles. Eventually my tastes changed to art deco watches. I was able to get them more inexpensively from E Bay, bidding on watches that were damaged but repairable.
As much as I liked acquiring more and more watches , my desire eventually halted. The watches I now wanted to accumulate were beyond my price range. I still admire all styles of time pieces but that’s where it has ended.
