My dad was a watch collector, and his passion for timepieces has left an indelible mark on my life. Growing up, I was surrounded by the gentle ticking of clocks, their rhythmic cadence providing a soothing background to my childhood memories. My father's love for these intricate machines was infectious, and it wasn't long before I, too, found myself captivated by their beauty and complexity.Our home resembled a horological museum, with countless watches and clocks adorning the walls, shelves, and cabinets. From antique pocket watches to modern luxury wristwatches, my dad's collection spanned centuries of horological history. He had a penchant for the stories behind each timepiece, and he would regale me with tales of their origins, their makers, and the events they had witnessed.Some of my fondest memories with my dad involve sitting in his workshop, marveling at the inner workings of a mechanical watch as he carefully disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled it. The delicate dance of gears, springs, and levers was a thing of beauty to us both, and we could spend hours discussing the minute details of a particular movement or escapement.As I grew older, my dad imparted his knowledge and skills to me. He taught me how to handle these delicate instruments, how to identify the hallmarks of quality, and how to recognize the unique characteristics of different watchmakers. Over time, our shared passion brought us closer together, and it became a bond that transcended generations.When my dad passed away, he left behind not only his cherished collection but also a legacy of love and appreciation for the art of watchmaking. I have continued to maintain and expand the collection, striving to honor his memory and keep his passion alive. Each time I wind a watch or admire its intricate details, I am reminded of my father and the many lessons he taught me.In the end, my dad's collection was not simply about the watches themselves but about the time we spent together, the moments we shared, and the love that connected us. These timepieces have become a tangible connection to the past, a reminder of the enduring bond between a father and son. And as I continue to explore the world of horology, I carry with me the knowledge and love that my father instilled in me, knowing that his spirit lives on in every tick and tock.

So when I see others with watches, it's like smelling a familiar scent, or seeing an old friend.  It brings me back home.
