Haha, if i graduated grad school and got a book i would probably cry, unless it was covered in gold and precious stones. It's the thought that counts I suppose...

I love watches and have a small humble collection.

I would have said Patek BUT that's too much for a graduation gift. I think those should be given as a wedding gift

JCarter, that's a nice piece and a great choice. You must have already had your eye on that or was it I who steered you into the Panerai family?! LOL. I like how Panerai is one of those 'boutique' watch companies which purposely limit their production runs.

Actually had steered me there. I had never heard of Panerai before you mentioned it.

Glad I could help... just as you have been so helpful with your responses. The brand has good heritage AND for an aspiring lawyer like your son, the timepiece has presence which is important in a subliminal way.
