A Timeless Watch

There's something about a gold pocket watch – timeless (no pun intended) with a whiff of nostalgia. Perhaps that's why a lost pocket watch always makes for such a sad story.

This lost watch story has a happy ending. A teenaged grocery store employee, Piero Ramos, spotted a gold watch in the trash behind the store. He traced the owner of the watch from the inscription on the back, and returned it to its rightful owner, Bill Iwanicki.

The pocket watch, it turned out, belonged to Bill's grandfather. It was given to him by Henry Ford when he retired from Ford Motor Company. The watch had been stolen from their home 51 years earlier.

Henry Ford had good taste; a gold pocketwatch is a great gift. You can find beautiful antique versions at my favorite used watch store here. Inscribe them with your loved one's name. As long as his name isn't John Smith, it will be easily identified as his for decades to come!

    Life is amazing like that. Its stories like this that show how interconnected we all really are.
