Some old guys showing off Vietnam Tudors

It's been a while, I had almost forgotten about this watch laying about. This one came out of the San Diego Naval base. Ken Jacobs had it and he sold it to me back in 2007. About 25 years ago when the watch was only worth $1500. I paid his crazy price aft...

Great watch, even better story (see the link provided in the post if you haven’t already done so).

25 years ago no one wanted these watches

It's funny how the demand for watches changes over the years. I remember 25 years ago when I was looking for these watches a Seal Team BUD/s Billy S. was writing stories about Vietnam reunions that he was attending. He took a lot of photographs of Tudor S...

What's the dot above the 6 o clock marker or is it a reflection? Stunning watch and story!

So there are 2 watches? I need to re-read the topic then. I thought I was dreaming.
