Re: Vancott, 10k & 14k

I came across my production records for these last week while looking for something else. I can't remember if they were for the 987-S or 748 Vancott. I'll review them in the next day or so and see what they reveal. Looking forward to seeing what you can find Bryan. I think there's a story to be tol...

Re: don't get the rolex, and omega thing.

I'm with you. I don't mind Oh-meagres - but I simply just don't like Rolexes. I've seen one years ago with a white dial and blued steel hands which was OK but other than that I cannot see any visual appeal whatsoever.

'tis the Season (to be silly?)
