But I reckon good luck to them. They look, feel and wear great. I think I would...

*Albeit a purely historical one. I mean, who now put someone into space relying purely on a wrist-watch? And how many professional racing teams use mechanical stopwatches? Divers with dive computers... no-one needs a mechanical watch nowadays for a traditional purpose. And even as a back up...let's face it, a quartz jobby would do the job just fine (if not better!!!!) But who buys stuff like this because we need it, right?
