Pronto again and again

Being a Parent and plan for the child....

I am not going to say much about this one. I have done Pronto Tropic Master twice: here and here. Going to give this to my boy when he is old enough. This is a Swiss made Pronto Tropic Master boy size. The Tropic Master is with the Rolex oyster look and with jubilee bracelet. All parts are of stainless steel. The crown is signed Pronto as well as the back case. 

This watch is with the gold plated, highly reliable and durable ETA 2824-2 movement. This is the 25 jewels automatic with beat rate of 28,800 bph. Before pass it to my boy in a few years time, I would revamp this watch a little. First, I would replace the acrylic crystal with a sapphire glass which has a cyclops lens. Second would change the bracelet. Third would get my friend to polish the watch and service the movement....

I think a watch that can last for ages, is one of the greatest gift, a father can give to a child. It represents the bond between the two. Even after our departure from this life, the watch will still accompany our child and watch over them..... As parent, we tend to anticipate and plan for our children.... Most of the time, whatever we have in mind, may not be what they want.... So most probably this watch would sit inside closet forever and evermore.
