It’s been been two days and soon two nights since the birth of our son. His mother, exhausted from the past days events has finally crashed and agreed to rest for a few hours so long as I promise to keep an eye on the baby. So here I sit listening to the faint sound of rushing air and the periodic beep of the machine tracking his vital signs. The NICU staff have been amazing and I can’t imagine the emotional toll of doing this day in and day out must take.
When I stand by my resting I can’t help but look back on my life, at what I value, and what it took to make it here. As he fights now at just 2 days old for the very breaths he needs to survive I know that through that struggle he will be come stronger and one day I picture him here, as I am, looking over his new born baby, me at his side, wearing the very same watch that I wore all those years past.
It’s this indescribable nostalgia that truly makes the precision crafted watches great and a true timeless wonder to behold.
Thank you all for being with me today.
