The final views in the story “Top Gears Watch Collectors in the Age of the Internet”.

I shot a few from the collection of Mike with his, Greg Stevens GSD 1A,  Italo Fontano U-BOAT, and a Brietling. But what caught my eye was his Zenith with the most interesting strap made from Stingray leather. Something I will be looking for my own dive watch.

Look for the article written by Editor/Writer Doug Sparks in the latest issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine this month.
