Default Bucket list item checked off! WOOT!

Found this watch ring today with the Excal on wet sand. This is going into my treasure display!

How many of you have ever found one? Heard someone found a Cartier one once. Wish mine was!

That's very cool. A rare find no question about it. Killing two birds with one scoop...a ring AND a watch

This one has water in it but it will still make a neat display item in the treasure coffee table. Thanks!

Anyone else wondering what her treasure display must look like now??? Must be like some peoples collection of frogs...... everywhere. It would take a moving van to clean her out.

That is an awesome find!

So, you honestly had one of those on your "bucket list"?

I'd never even heard of one!
