The Watch: 1995 Rolex GMT-Master

The Details: " I chose the model because of its connection to my father. The GMT was developed in the late '50s for Pan-Am's transatlantic pilots, and my dad is a retired pilot. (For the record, he's also a frugal Norwegian, and for most of my childhood he wore a Casio.) If he had been a miner, I suppose I would've gotten a Milgauss. I admit, the watch would be cooler if it were from 1965 instead of 1995. I chose '95 because it's the year I graduated college, and because I wanted something lower maintenance that I could actually get wet. Also on my wrist: a leather bracelet by Billy Moore of Cause and Effect, and a beaded bracelet I put on at the (Capsule) trade show in January and haven't taken off."
