My wife picked me up this book for Christmas. I think it's been around for a year or so but there are some great stories and pictures in it.

A Man and His Watch

I got this book last Christmas, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Easy to sit down and read a story or two from to time, and the photos are excellent, as well.

Great book. It received it last year (2017) as a gift as well. This year, I picked up The Watch Thoroughly Revised. It’s a nice book as well.

Is that the Chronomat left by a GI in the 1940s that was never claimed?

Thought this might be of interest...

In Episode 32 of H-dink-ee Radio, Matt Hranek is asked which watch has caught his eye recently. His response -- he's looking at Breitling again, and now really likes Breitling. In particular, he's a fan of the new black Navitimer 8 chronograph. :wink:
