Not a pic of my watch, but its exactly like mine. I bought a Rolex GMT Master when I lived in Johannesburg in May of 1985. Its not the GMT Master II which came out in the early 90s, but the original GMT Master (Notice that there is no "II" after the term "GMT-MASTER." The used watch people call this a "Vintage GMT Master."). Its been my "daily wearer" ever since. Like the watch in the pic it has the gold and stainless jubilee bracelet, with the black face, and the black bezel with gold numbers.

The following statement is true.

The above statement is false.

Been wearing one of these for about 5 years, now... I rarely take it off.

If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.

You can get them made at DisneyLand... they have a watch store on the premises and you can buy ones already done or talk directly with an artist and have him half sketch what you are thinking or pick from a book of the artists work. Each artist has different stuff.

There are 2 types you can purchase/order:

Monochrome (black on white) $125
Color $500
Ninja Skillz... I haz dem.

You mean the "extra" release that expands the band for a wetsuit's sleeve?
I haven't had any issues with it, but the first time I popped it by accident it got my attention.

I've been wearing this thing every day and the band has been berry berry good to me so far.

Im a bit of a watch nut myself. What gearhead cant appreciate the precision little motors in a mechanical watch? These happen to be my favorite autos in no particular order.
A photographer I am not.

Older swatch auto from when they were using ETA movements in the autos
