126710BLNR - my one and only Rolex (at least for now)

Iím not in the academic field so my PhD has less value than my BLNR. Would have been better off spending the money on that degree buying some PM subs.

When I was in college, the last thing I would have ever done or thought about was buying a Rolex. Worked all the way through and studied. There was no time or money for watches. And a SS DJ was about $400 USD new back then. Whole lot of money.

Despite a medical degree, the most I ever learned in a single class was economics 101. Not surprisingly, it reminded me of psychology 101.

I have multiple diplomas from the Marine Corps and US Army in destroying targets using air, naval, and ground assets. I wear a 1680 Submariner in White. My occupational schools were quite intensive and classes were explosive by their very nature.
