Re: Non CW of the Day

Re: Other people’s perceptions

In 1985 I bought a GMT Master from the Duty Free shop in the Hilton Hotel in Agana, Guam.

I expect not. Most of my watches make me feel good, so I guess they are "empower" watches....

Two of the four are Steinharts, Ocean 39 GMT and Ocean 39 Vintage; the others are Invicta watches, one a Reserve, and the other a 4469 Diver. Crown action and movem...

Re: MoonSwatch Mission to Moonshine Gold - only today!
