    Then again, that was in my younger days. I shattered my favorite watch on some punks face in a Green Day pit once. Never trusted myself with nice watches after that.


    Nice. Bet Green Day enjoyed having you in their pit to bring a little testosterone to the show.

    Hah. This was pre-Insomniac and pre Billy Joe's "I'm a serious artist" phase. They're far off their punk roots now.

    Christ! That's fourteen years ago.

    I bought this a while ago, it's a bit too 'bling' for me. The bracelet is integral in that it cannot be replaced or adjusted as far as I can tell. I liked it because it's very thin but I've no real information on this brand. Can anyone enlighten me please?

    That is very, very cool. I wonder if it's still working.

    Yes, nice little bit of German over-engineering, that; I'm told that a power reserve would be a useful feature on a ship's clock. It would let you know if the last watch wound it up.

    I'd love to shoot me some Nazis just to steal their watches. Kind of like the father/banker returning from WWII with a Japanese Katana from Best Years of our Lives (1946) [​IMG]
