ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) – A man in upstate New York finally has his wristwatch back, 53 years after it was stolen. Ed Grigor says he had long ago forgotten about the 23-jewel wristwatch stolen when he was in the Navy.

Then last month the Binghamton-area man got a call from a Las Vegas couple. They were able to track down Grigor because his name was engraved on the back of the watch.

The Press and Sun Bulletin of Binghamton (http://press.sn/XJqC6c ) reports that the mother of the woman who tracked down Grigor owned a guest house frequented by Navy servicemen stationed in Virginia Beach. When they ran low on money, she would hold collateral until they paid their bills, but some never came back.

When the woman’s mother died, the watch was found among her possessions.

Grigor now calls his watch Time Traveler.
