Over the years I have been blessed to have been the beneficiary of the goodwill of a number of forum members and friends, including information, parts and excellent condition all original watches, amongst others; an Ashtray Tuna, a 6306 diver, a 6309-7040, a 6119-6023, a Bellmatic, a Rolex Oyster Perpetual with a Sigma dial, to name a few.

To me, as a gift from a friend, they take on a special significance that is somehow more than just the watch and I cannot even contemplate ever selling or giving away any of these. They give me hope that there is still a lot of good left in our insane world. As a personal principle I give away at least one watch a year to a person that needs a watch and I am constantly helping people by giving parts away to those busy with worthwhile watch projects.

Surprisingly, I seem to be on the receiving end far more than the other way around.

To my friends across the globe who have been part of this journey, thanks a million!

By the way Russell, that 6138 looks as good as the day it was sent! I assure you, the ones in my custody are treasured equally.

Misunderstood the question. I have never received a watch gift.

Hopefully you will do, and if its from another forum member you will realise just how special that gift watch or spare part is, and that the monetary value of the gift is not important. Its all about freindship, and being a part of the SCWF community that count's.
