The quest for the “right” bezel insert is done. After much searching, I found a faded bezel insert for this radically sun faded tropical-dialed, patent pending Mark II Sea Dweller. Along with the dead stock tritium pearl, this project is now officially done. Googling/ebaying/etsying/craigslisting for the most esoteric bits possible is nutty, cathartic and most definitely GMS.

IN-DEPTH: Twelve Of The Greatest Missing Watches, Including Paul Newman's Paul Newman, John Lennon's Patek Philippe, The Original Moonwatch, And A President's President
The intersection of politics and popular culture with wristwatches is undeniably fascinating. I mean, that’s basically why I have a job. Equally fascinating is the pursuit of these timepieces at the center of this interesection by watch collectors, dealers, and auction houses. There are a handful of documented important wrist and pocket watches out there that the world at large is still looking for. What I mean by that is they have not been publicly sold or located, like say Eric Clapton’s platinum 2499, Gandhi’s Zenith pocket watch, or Steve McQueen’s 5512 Submariner (we won’t get into his seemingly never ending supply of Monacos), though we know they exist via a blurry old 35mm photograph, or word of mouth. This is a short list of twelve watches that we know to exist, have serious interest in, but have seemingly gone missing.

Meticulous work with Playmobil is most definitely GMS
Good on ya boyz
