How in­ter­est­ing to read about Joe Fad­dell’s Rolex Sub­mariner (Let­ters, Septem­ber 2016). I, too, longed to own one at the age of 18 and scraped up £41 10s to pur­chase one in 1958. I wore it for 25 years un­til the ser­vic­ing be­came too ex­pen­sive, so do­nated it to Rolex Watch Com­pany in Switzer­land.

Ten years later, I in­her­ited a Rolex Gmt-master, which I dare not wear as it is too valu­able and costs too much to run. I wear a Swatch. DAVE REYNELL KNYSNA
