Response to Well John – then you’ll appreciate the rest of the story

antimagnetic qualities of any of the watches ever prove itself? Are we basically talking about a lead shield inside the case back? I know that a watch can be magnitized...and I imagine that there are some places that must have strong fields that could do this to a watch. Have you ever experienced them and what happened to time pieces and other equipment in this areas?

Because those watches were supplied by Rolex, had they any special prep done to them? Any other watches, non-Rolexes, tested? We know the famous Speedmaster being selected by NASA was a matter of the watch fitting the situation by coincidence, not by design.

Today what sort of watches (if any) would be taken into the environment you were working in?
