The Quiz of three blue watches

Dec 02, 2018,13:20 PM

These are my three blue watches.

They are all blue,
all big and bulky,
all very unique,
all marine or diver,
all distinctive,
all special in their own right
and they all share something special with each other.
Can you guess?

. . . I do love the UN Regatta. It's seldom seen around here (or anywhere). M4

It is very nice indeed, though has to go back for repair already. Out of the box the chrono zeroing function is faulty.
