If this watch could talk…

I love everything that tells a story. That’s probably why I like old things such as weathered objects and antiques. This watch I found at home is definitely no exception.

Sorry for the bad photography; I used a jewel magnifying glass in front of my iPhone camera to enlarge the writing as much as I could.

The engraving reads “To Gladys Love From Tom 20.11.28”.

Immediately, a million and one questions just come to my mind. Who was Gladys? Who was Tom? What was so special about the 20th of November, 1928? What is so significant about this watch? Are they still alive?

Imagine if this watch could talk, what stories could it tell?
