In which case we consider them 'priceless'. The best watches are the heirlooms. Treat them well, don't forget to have them serviced if you're going to use them, they deserve it.

  Please note the the OP's watch has a two letter day, highly unusual for a 218, while the one in the ad has a three letter date which is what one would expect. I don't remember ever seeing a 2 letter day in a 218. Perhaps Oliver can chime in here.

Thanks Lylel396.  Hadn't noticed the two-letter day on watch vs the three-letter dispaly in the ad.  Good observation.

Thanks Lyle! The advert with the picture was a 1972 ad, while my watch is an N3. I wonder if they changed the design in '73 from a three letter day to a two letter model?
