I remembered. She just nods her head and rolls her eyes.

Any tips, complaints etc? Seems to be chugging right along. I haven't had a manual wind watch in years...Automatics, yes, but not manual wind. It's kind of different. :)

04 commemorative 07-02-2019 04:24pm

So.....gonna show us the wife ?

Thunder22 07-02-2019 04:31pm

holy crap that's a nice watch. I've been stalking that watch for 2 years, and finally decided $4500 was too expensive, and I backed down to the Bulova.

Congrats on the fantastic gift, your wife.... she's a keeper.

Thunder22 07-02-2019 04:34pm

I just bought this this week... it's also an Apollo Moon Watch, Apollo 15, but it was a personal backup watch for Astronaut David Scott. He strapped it on when teh crystal on his Omega popped off. You can read the story here:
