It took a licking, but it is still ticking

Yesterday I wore one of my vintage Rolex 4220 "SPEEDKING"s for the day.

I put it up on my bookshelf to the right of my desk and grabbed my Datejust that was sitting next to it.

I somehow snagged my finger on the 4220 and it fell four feet face first onto the floor. . .

I've never done anything like that before.

Twenty-one hours later it is still running and keeping perfect time.

Pretty good for an 80 year old watch!

D'oh! That's a heart in the mouth moment for sure. Good to hear it came through with flying colours.
Thanks! I should have mentioned more clearly that it landed on a laminate floor, not deep plush shag carpet like in the back of Conjurer's van!
