    Not the watch you have had the longest, but....

    the oldest watch you have.

    For me it would have to be my grandfather's Ernest Borel Kaleidoscope Cocktail. It likely predates my 1966 Omega piepan.

    I have older clocks, but I think now my oldest watch is this one from my grandfather, probably around 1930 but not sure.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Excluding some clocks and pocket watches, this is it: Omega circa 1939 - which happens to be one of my favourites.

    That would be my birth year watch, which is to say, old enough.

    1950s, I guess. It was once my daily wearer, before I developed a watch habit, but is now gommed up and immobile in a drawer.

    I did have my grandfather’s pocket watch (circa 1900), but passed it on to my nephew. No picture, unfortunately.
