Sad story Clare, but a beautiful treasure..
How sad. It makes is even more of a treasure.
He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten while his watch is worn. You are privileged to be given such a precious item.
Yes a sad story. Truly a treasure. Going to join you in Tuesday Treasures today methinks :-)
How lovely that you can continue to wear the watch and remember their love for each other.
What a beautiful treasure. It must be very special indeed to still be ticking after 95 years.
Clare, what a lovely memory to have - their love for each other. You've just reminded me I have Great Grandma's rose gold watch put away somewhere. Think I need to ask some more details about it from my Mum. I love Tuesday Treasure's as it always reminds me of another treasure I have that I've forgotten about :D! Off to take photos of a few things now and actually participate this time.
Clare--What a wonderful treasure.A reminder of so many things. True love,family , the sacrifice of war. A real treasure.
What a special watch. It is beautiful and I love that it has a special story attached to it, even though a bit sad.
Oh Clare what a BEAUTIFUL treasure!

Love your watch and the special tale which belongs to it.Thinking a watch from now wont still be ticking in 100 years time.
It is a beautiful watch, and so lovely you know the story behind it.
Lovely post today Clare....such a beautiful treasure for you to have, even though it's such a sad story. Very glad you have it though and keeping the memory so special.xx

What a lovely treasure.
I'm not too late, lol - it's still Tuesday here!
A true treasure ... and how wonderful that it is still used and loved every day.
Really a true treasure... But the watch is really cool will surely remind u of him whenever you wear it..
I have signed up,I hope that I am not too late. I shall catch next Tuesday in time.A lovely watch and even more preciousbecause of the sad story that is linked to it.I have a couple of treasures to show. Your blog banner has a similar style era I think.Thank you for sharing this.x
I think it is wonderful that you treasure and use this heirloom. My paternal grandparents were married in 1915. I wish i had ask them what it was like living as young marrieds during WWI. How sad your aunt lost her young man. I hope that she found happiness with another.
I love this story , so romantic and so very sad.I'm really looking forward to adding my little treasures to my blog, what a wonderful idea. Not sure how I'll go - I've only been blogging for two days.
