HODINKEE+Patek+Philippe

Excerpt by Jason Heaton

Jason describes a story within the film that lasts 5 1/2 minutes within the 105 minutes of the full documentary. The watch story is highly impactful offering tremendous hope and joy to my Uncle and his fellow PoWs in Stalag Luft III.

"My favorite watch stories to read and write are not about the money fetched at auction, some new limited edition, or which celebrity has signed on to wear a certain brand. They are those about the exploits of people wearing watches, going to the Moon, sailing around the globe, or simply living a full life. Looking back though, there is one story of a wristwatch and its owner that stands above the rest: that of World War II veteran and prisoner of war, Charles Woehrle, and his Patek Philippe. It is a story of great courage, humility, and generosity, and one that is the subject of the new documentary film Stalag Luft III: One Man’s Story."
