This old watch looks very ordinary until you turn it over.

The date on the back is the date that Rob passed his final anaesthetic exam in Melbourne and I was there to present him with the watch. The thing that’s always amazed him, and still does, is that I had that watch engraved about 30 days BEFORE the event, before he sat and passed the exam.

How did I know he would pass, without a shadow of doubt?

Well, I guess I just did…

Sadly, now the watch has stopped working and cannot be fixed. But we will keep it somewhere safe to remember the day that Rob made his dream of becoming a doctor, in the way that he wanted to be a doctor, come true…
