    I don't wear watches (or should say I can't wear them) I really don't wear any kind of jewelry except my Amulet, Crystal & wedding rings, I mess everything else up, including my cell phones if I leave them in my pocket to long :( I'm jinxed lol

    You're like our DebiDebi - she fries electronics too! I knew a guy that would touch microwave ovens and zap them dead. Well, they still worked, but the settings were all lost and the display flashed like the power went out.

    Well if you ever "needed" a watch, you could get a mechanical one that does not run on battery power - nothing to zap!

    $1 MILLION ROLEX SUBMARINER WATCH

    It's nowhere near the price of Paul Newman's Daytona, but this Rolex would set the record for most expensive Submariner ever sold. A 1956 model, it's a reference 6538, otherwise known as the "James Bond" for its appearance on the wrist of Sean Connery in Dr. No. Making it more unique are its lack of bezel, "Explorer" dial with Latin numerals at 3, 6, and 9, excellent patina, and meters-first depth rating in red instead of white. It is offered at Christie's Exceptional Watch auction in New York.

    New in 1956 the watch would have been about $75. Not a bad return on investment for a 62-year-old watch.

    Patek Phillipe 1957. Bought it for 10 grand about 15 years ago. Has a lovely spot in my safe and never sees the light of day. I'll eat cardboard before I sell it

    I know a lot of people like that...i don't wear jewelry much anymore either. If I wear a ring for a special occasion I end up taking it off....blocked energy current or something

    Nice, I remember you telling me about this one. You might want to take it our once in a while and just carefully wind it up. Running it keeps the oils and grease where it should be.
