I thought that was a really cool watch but that they were hyping it a bit too much. I guess not. Two swingin' dicks must have wanted it pretty badly.

The movement for that watch is not even Rolex.

It is a Valjoux 72C.

It's actually not a 72C. It is not a chronograph and it is automatic.

OK -

I wasn't looking carefully -

I thought it was like one of the Killy watches.
