That is really retro-cool. Love the faceted crystal and color.

The turtley case and faceted crystal are very cool- your dad sure had a nice eye for watches, art.

Thanks for the kind words. I was wondering if this watch was from the 70's. Now I know and I'll be wearing it the the company Christmas Party because someone thought it would be a good idea to have a 70's theme party this year.
