    Wow. It does look like an older Tag to me.

    This thread will go south very quickly, but it is actually interesting and relevant.

    Sparks a memory of the Russian orthodox leader who wore a high-end watch and got a lot of flak for it. Especially since they did such a botched job of trying to Photoshop it out.

    Well I guess this puts to rest that debate thread a week ago where people were arguing that nobody notices what watch (or watch brand) a person is wearing.

    Well... For a guy with a "10 million dollar" bounty (and 2 billion dollar war chest) I expected something a little more...I don't know...Patek Phillipe-ish. LoL. Maybe he'll upgrade when his siege of Bagdad is finally successful... I hear he's kinda busy right now.
