    I've always kind of wanted to get a Ti Breitling Aerospace, but I don't wear watches, so it would really be a waste. Cool watch though.

    I have a Rolex my Dad gave me on my 18th, used, it was his, that looks a lot like this one, but I could swear he said it was a Submariner:

    I'll have to go and look now. Maybe "Oyster date GMT Master II" is the same thing? I know virtually nothing about it. I wonder how I would even know if it was real? I know he said that before he gave it to me, he had the bezel replaced and had it gone over at a watch place, so maybe it's real. I've thought about hawking it. Again, I don't wear watches.

    @Spagthorpe;

    The two-tone bezel was and is a GMT exclusive. If you have it, it could be worth some bucks. This 1957 version sold for more than $20,000.

    One from about a year earlier just sold at auction for $100,000.

    Also, the one you have pictured is not authentic.

    I just grabbed it from Google Image, as a general representation.

    I know mine isn't that old. I want to say my Dad picked it up in '77 or so. I could be a year or two off.

    The design idea was mine. I got tired of finding my favorite Disney character in lousy, stoopid looking watch designs.

    Hand drawn by a Certified Disney artist - I have the original piece in watercolor and it is about 14x16 in size. They shrink a copy of it down to fit in the watch face.

    Date shown is the date I wanted on there: The day it was drawn.

    One neat characteristic of the watch is the artist is famous for putting 'Hidden Mickey's' in his work. There are 3 in this one, though you can't see em in the watch, only in the original artwork.

    I've been collecting watches and such for most of my life. Been a member of the NAWCC since '93.

    This is the plain Jane 5513 I wore today:

    Bought for washing the car and ended up making it one of my favorite daily wear watches.

    Did you pick that strap up from Howard? I have those on lots of my watches.

    Yep. Bought several, both SAS/007 and black from him about five years ago.
