Mine would be the Doxa Sub 1967.  Not sure any likely to come up though and will prpbably need a lottery jackpot to buy it.

 I had a 1957 Bulova, but I sold it as it was a bit too small.  However, I do have this in a box at home – a little Avia given to my mother by my father on the day I was born.  A bit special, that.  It gets wound up occasionally and keeps quite good time.

That's great dating information! I have the same watch in chrome that I put at c1953, but I will revise that now

Nothing special, but I like it...

AVIATION (supplied by Louis Newmark Croydon), unjeweled Pin-pallet, 1954.

That looks special to me! I would love one of these but from 1952 (my birth year)

Ah well, I have a birth year watch or 16.

I cheated and went for this instead, it helped that it was a piece I lusted after in any case, although I'd still like to find a nice watch from what was clearly a classic year! :yes: :biggrin:

There is a possiblity that I may have. The black 7606 has serial No.5201435. I was born on 5th February. 1435 watches in 5 days ? I wonder what the output was back then and if it could be close ?

If anyone comes across a Speedmaster from 1984 please let me know. August 1984 would be a bonus.  Beat up or mint, don’t mind. Thanks

Just get a Flickr account or subscribe to a gallery membership here @Chris 810 and share the pics.

Just sold my birth year Patek Philippe, bought more with the heart than the head.  So now the search starts again to replace that.
