I have a Memovox that was specially modded as a present for best executive performance of a Ford Executive in the 1950s! Must have been given to the recipient by Edsel at the annual banquet?

Picked it up years ago on Ebay - presumably the Ford exec was long gone and the estate sold the watch. It has a custom 'F' emblem on the dial. Would love to know if Ford had Le Coultre provide the watches or if a local jeweller customized them.

I never seem to wear that one, but often wear my early 1950s Futurematic (think I posted a pic of that one).

I would get a friggin Casio over a Rolex, can't stand that brand! JLC for sure. Beautiful watches, top craftsmanship, and so much history!
I have a Casio for sale, only $7k. Once sold I can get another pre-owned Rolex. Interested?

For 7 grand it must be one of the Casios with that tiny little calculator built in? Those are true classics, right up there with the LED ones that will say 'Time to Fuck' if you push the right button. OK, I'm really dating myself, aren't I
