Watches - No. 1

I like to collect watches, mostly not expensive ones (though I do have a couple of really nice models).  From time to time, I am going to share a watch from my collection.  Here is the first in the series.

This is a fairly simple, elegant dress watch, gold-faced with a dark leather band:


The design on the face is a commemorative of the 100th U.S. Open, played at Pebble Beach and won by Tiger Woods:


The back shows the limited edition number of the watch:


This one is special because I was on the on the volunteer committee of that U.S. Open.  I drove a player's shuttle (actually a large black Cadillac Escalade), and I got to see Jack Nicklaus play his last round at Pebble in the Open.
