When you read the story behind a watch\ know the providence is genuine - I think it must be pretty exciting to own that\ any watch that has it.

Thats a good story that came along with that one - lucky owner

What a great story I love full pedigrees for any watch weither it
is a simple Air Kink or a Mil Sub.
I also had the chance to buy an old chrono from the familly heirs
who were nice enough to copy some of the familly pictures for me (even they
firstly found it kind of weird happy.gif

So here are some pics of the former owner of my 2508

Here in Les Pennes south of France

Here near Zurich

Near Adelboden

I find it kind of touching, isn't it?

I sold him my 5513 that jed sold me a few years ago , i work Savile Row as a tailor for one of the big houses there so it was just a short walk for me to where he was in Hanover square just off brook st

My father was in the forces for 34 yrs so i spent all my childhood and more living and growing up in army quarters all over different parts of the globe ,my father served with the SAS in northern Ireland where we lived for 16 months at the tender age of 12 . . . There is currently a documentary on the SAS on tv here in the UK from the second world war in africa and the fight to stop rommel and his forces which was why the SAS was formed and so on it began .

Cheers guys and thanks for the pics Martijn , great photo's '' Keith .
