An old friend returns home

Post by koimaster » November 5th 2021, 9:17am

So this arrived yesterday. I had previously sold this watch to gregl515 prior to his death in May of 2015 while I was still recovering from my own injuries. Over the years I have owned several FC watches including a sub second hand and one similar to this model with gold tone case. I had been going over some old threads when I ran into one where Greg had offered to buy this one although it was not for sale. He had already purchased the sub second one back in 2014 so I was a bit surprised but nonetheless I sold him this watch.

After his untimely death I wondered what happened to his watches so I reached out to his brother who informed me he had them. I offered my condolences, told him about some of the watches Greg had and offered to help facilitate any sales of them if he did sell them. I heard nothing back so I assumed he was going to keep the watches. I reached out to him earlier this year and he got back to me. Most of the watches had been either sold or claimed by family members but he had kept this one and a few others. I offered to buy back this one and he came up with a price higher than I sold it to Greg but here it is.

Beautiful watch, still well-(re-)bought relative to its provenance.

That’s great (and pretty surprising) those two dogs get along well… Great shot! It would be hard to believe… but there they are, hanging out. Nice moment.

Hunger makes for strange bedfellows, indeed, but what the hell do you feed the 'possum?
