    Did anybody see Buzz Aldrin on Top Gear US?

    I will try and post a screen cap when I get home, but he was wearing 2 watches. On his left arm, he was definitely wearing an Omega Speedmaster of some sort. I couldnt figure out what he was wearing on his right arm tho. Anybody know? It was a brown leather strap and a gold case if I remember correctly (I was in a turkey coma when I watched it).

    I saw it. Looked like a seamaster to me not sure what the gold one was.

    Buzz went to my alma mater, went to the moon, and is a total bad***, but wearing two watches just knocked him down a few pegs in my book.

    Hmm ... why should it affect your perception of him?

    I didn't mean my respect for his accomplishments, but it's kind of like wearing jean shorts on top of a pair of jeans. That could be a great person, but it's a bit ridiculous.

    If memory serves, I remember Diego Maradona wearing two watches while coaching Argentina at the World Cup. It was explained that he did this so he "always knew what time it was in Argentina."

    Maradona wore two identical Hublot. Buzz Aldrin wore two different watches one with leather strap and the other with ss bracelet, it didn't look right.

    Definitely a Seamaster on the left hand, not sure about the gold one though.

    PS - Top Gear US has a ways to go. The UK "original" is much better.
    In order of purchase:
    Breitling Grand Premier - Seeing less wrist time
    Nike Oregon WA0018 - Weekend Warrior
    Glycine Combat 07 - Daily Driver
    Seiko Orange Monster - Because everyone else does
    Prometheus OD GMT 015/500 - When I'm on the move
    Omega Seamaster Great White - How it's supposed to be

    On the hunt for:
    Nothing right now
