Had a 3 hour hunt today and came away with one of the strangest finds in a while. There in the same spot in dry sand near the dune line, I found 2 watches; an Armani Exchange wrist watch (AX2189) and a Montblanc No 7873 wrist watch, the later being a fake. Both watches were still keeping time. Even more weird, the Montblanc wrist watch has a corroded case suggesting that the watches were there for some time and this brings up even a more weird finding – the watches had the same time when found except one watch was on standard time and the other watch was on Day-light Savings time (i.e., one hour apart). I guess they also might represent different time zones. Any ways, to find 2 wrist watches in the same spot is one for the record book. Who wears two large watches?

Wondering if they were buried on purpose, as if they were stolen...
Actually thought along those same lines but given the area for many old folks, possibly a late husband's watches and he happened to be a metal detectorist. So his wife buried them for one of us to find.
Thanks and sorry for your loss....

I found three in a row, two in one hole and one a few feet away on the edge of a sports field two weeks ago. I wondered the same things. I suspect one person convinced the other to take their watches off and put them down together.
