          Aaron has got one, it can be seen on some of his pictures taken in Spain. You are right, it is amazing that people still sell (and buy) all these mementos years after the move was made. Oh yes, Mr.... more

            I haven't bought the watch - I was thinking of asking my stepson for it for Christmas. My husband died in 1996, he had three grown sons living in England - they were born and raised there. The... more
