Whether we say we do or not, we are all curious to know what
others choose to wear on their wrists. As much as I have never been one to get
too caught up on what other think or say, I have always felt watches were different.
Mainly because community is at the core of education, sharing and enjoying
watches, what other wear is just darn right fascinating. And this week it’s the
iconic travel watch, the Rolex GMT. Here are 8 faces you may recognise sporting
the watch originally made for Pan-Am pilots ..do any of them fly, not sure. Let
me know in the comments below if they do!
