    Off to see my watchmaker, who works at a local Rolex dealership. This is to help ward off the salesman.

    Yeah, my iPhone pics aren't too great. :p It's a nice looking watch though, just a little too big for my taste.

    Nonsense, you just need wrist implants. Not being able write a reply without tripping over an MD around here, maybe we have a Plastic Surgeon? I know a super Botox guy that works with my wife, but he's P M & R, so that won't help us.

    No, Vinny was Anthony's cousin. They all work in Barnegat. I'm only related to the family through marriage - my sister's husband's brother's sister-in-law is married to Tony Cannelloni. Tony is Carmine's nephew and they work in Hoboken. Gina Marie and Antoinetta can explain it to you on the phone the next time you call.

    No way, those dames are trouble. Teressa is still pissed at what happened at Tony Jr.s wedding, so we got an arrangement , they stay out of Brooklyn and we stay out of North Jersey.

    Unfortunately not a Zenith Cairelli :( ... but close enough

    Below is what Bulova US answered to a friend of mine about these chronographs, made in 1979 in less than 500 pieces

    "Taking a look at the images you provided I can tell you one thing that the
    timepiece was marketed for Europe and the Asia. The markings on the back
    are totally different than the United States. During the period of the
    late 70's until the mid 90'd Bulova leased the name to several companies
    that made watch wit the Bulova name on the dial and we never here in the US
    had the information available. Our Hong Kong office did have data on these
    models until just recently when that information was discarded. Sorry I can
    not be more of a help""

    Intriguing ?!? ::book::
