    Was this Albert Einstein's watch?

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I believe this watch was created in honor of Lindbergh's flight or it's the watch he wore.

    A man with a watch always knows what the time is. A man with two watches is never sure.

    One of the many great things about this forum is the wonderful tidbits and knowledge that members share here. But don't tease too long.

    WUS has rules that address these things... MyBulova is in compliance to the best of my knowledge.

    Basically the rules follow the caveats that if your linked site is commercial, you have to be a sponsor (WUS has to pay for the servers and bits somehow!). If it is not, it needs a link back to WUS. Ask a moderator in PM if you have any doubts about what you are doing.

    I've been using myBulova.com for quite a while, as it's a wonderful resource for Bulova watches, and he's done a great job of revamping the site recently. He deserves the extra traffic for his contribution to horology. IMO.
