Razz Thanks Jim, that incredible. Only SEIKO could come up with that one huh?

I would like to see in person and also hear the anthem but I'm afraid I won't be traveling to Australia any time soon!

Thanks for the great pic!

The “world’s largest pocket watch” topic brings to mind that P.T. Barnum once featured a sideshow attraction billed as the “world’s largest midget.”

That big watch would be great for the Jolly Green Giant to wear!

And that gold chain Terry showed us looks awfully heavy to me.
