We have special watches issued to the Regulating Branch - always set 5 minutes fast, which we use to catch absentees as they come across the Gangway. They think it's 0744, but... 8O :wink:

So the seller was ex - Superintendent of the Uncle John [which I saw in dry-dock is Galveston a couple of weeks ago] and he also dived in DPC Fateh Field ........ narrows the list of suspects down a little :thumright:

Even so 86,000 for a gas Rolex is a bit steep... LOL
