Really enjoyed it, thanks for sharing. Interesting to know that the shuttle had michelin tyres, I wouldnt have guess that one right! Anyway, as I read your post The Doors L.A. Woman was playing in my head, so where were they? Maybe another post haha!
And I say that with the deepest respect for plumbers! There's nothing that connects the case or dial to pilot watches, maybe the center second at best and even that is far fetched. The article should just say synchron release a bronze watch....zzzz
