    I thought Japan were sensational, they had 79% possession in the first half, almost unheard of in what was a competetive game.

    I have a Bremont (Alt1-P blue), and love it. It is one of the best made watches I own. But I find the endless processions of all of these Limited Editions (one a year?) somewhat alienating. They all...
