David decided to take the watch to another watch repairer for a second opinion. He heard once of a watch specialist who had a shop not too far from where they lived. It was worth the trip, and he had nothing to lose. The first watch specialist charged David almost $250 to clean the watch, and David had to get that money back somehow.
Even if it wasn’t a luxury brand like Rolex, for sure, it was worth something. He was planning to dig deep into the history of the watch and discover who it belonged to. However, the first thing to do was to get its value estimation.
Dreams Coming Ture
While the watch was being treated, David and Ruth began daydreaming about what they could do with the money, if indeed the watch was worth a lot of money. They were both dreaming of a nice holiday, which they had;t taken in a long time, and besides, the list of things they could do and people they could help was endless, so any surprise amount of money would do.
Although David was hoping for the watch to be some sort of expensive brand, this was not the case. The watch specialist could not identify the watchmaker. He gave the partially cleaned watch to David and said that this was the best he could do.
He Wanted Much More
David was disappointed. He was sure that the watch's value would at least cover the cleaning expenses. However, no one could say what brand it was or what its value was. All of those stories of people finding treasures in their backyards and making fortunes from the junk they had discovered were not David's case.
Even though the watchkeeper could help David, something inside wouldn't leave him at ease. David knew there was something more to this watch than what everyone thought, and he was not going to let go. He was going to get to the bottom of this no matter what it cost him.
No One to Talk To
David arrived at the watch shop that was out of town, however, it was closed. There was no one around, and the doors were locked. David looked through the transparent window, and something caught his eye. He couldn't get his eyes off it and almost forgot what the purpose of his journey was.
David saw an old picture hanging on the wall. It was black and white, and it featured a man. The man was middle-aged; he softly smiled at the camera, and he had a watch on his wrist. David immediately recognized it. It was the same watch he found in his backyard.
What Was Going On?
This was too odd to believe. David instantly took a photo of the picture he saw in the jewelry shop. This was history. This was an ancient watch passed down from father to son and is now in his possession. David stuck to his belief that there was much more to this piece of jewelry than what the first watch specialist initially anticipated.
David was not going to give up. He was going to get to the bottom of this. David made his way back home, anticipating to share the big news with Ruth. She was his soul mate and would advise him the best.
