25 Year Dedication

25 Year Dedication

Special watch on a special day. 25 years ago today I married the love of my life. On my wedding day my dad gave me this Bulova Super Seville and I've worn it sparingly since. For a few years I had it on a leather strap but today, on this auspicious occasion, I put it back on it's original gold band. Like me, after all these years the band is clanky and has signs of wear, but the movement is strong like the love I have for my wife. If Casey Kasem was still alive I would be writing him to play this song on the radio dedicated to my bride of 25 years. Cheers!

Art - this may have been the best post ever. Just a pleasure to read, and the watch is every bit as cool.

I hope you and your wife are just getting started. Congrats to you both.

Thanks for the well wishes! Sorry, the link to Heatwave's "Always and Forever" video on YouTube did not work as planned. FYI, that was our wedding song and if someone much more tech savvy than me would kindly link that video properly, I would really appreciate it!

Twenty five years in the car world makes all three of you classics. Your better half, yourself, and the song. Here's to another 25 plus.

That is wonderful. Congratulations to both you and the wife.
That dedication and commitment is the gold standard. More like this would solve a whole bunch of problems.
