Navy SEALs and their Watches, Part 1

Hi Guys, I've been teasing the Rolex Forum a bit with photos of two Tudor Submariners that I had the opportunity to clean and polish. Now I can tell you some of the story behind those watches, and a few other watches I've been happy to play around with. US NAVY SEALS As most of us know, the US Navy

First Chopard!

Picked up this 2018 LE Raching chronograph from Chopard. I love the racing-car inspired elements in this watch. The case polishing is fabulous and makes the watch looks more expensive than it is.

Wearing this classic Mido today

A great interview over on Hodinkee

On this Veteran's Day they interviewed "Moki" Martin a veteran of SEAL Team 1 and the Vietnam War. He's is the "real" deal in terms of being a military hero and a military watch collector. His Tudor and Rolex were issued to him by the US Navy, bought from a ship's store, or traded with another SEAL.

A new shot of my IWC Mk 11

I don't have many IWC but the few I have I really like! Like this IWC Mk 11: a no nonsense, antimagnetic, time only watch with a true work hours of a movement: the Calibre 89. What's not to like...?! Best Blomman
