Papa Bear has been a rock for me these past few months, dealing with different types of grief, and without him I would have probably had a relapse of depression. So as Fathers day approaches I wanted to get him something special.
When we got engaged I bought him 2 watches (I got a diamond ring of course) and he has worn them a lot. However 7 years later and I think a really special gift to thank him for being there for our family would be a watch. I spoke to Precision Time watches (a watch company local to us) and he recommended these.
So this fathers day for an extra special treat I decided to get him another watch, to show how much we appreciate him for being there for us. They are expensive but he is worth it, and I can double up as an anniversary present next month - and maybe birthday and Christmas too ha ha.
