Ian Nater And His Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Ian has pretty much always wanted a Rolex, but it was in 2016, during a road trip through Europe, that he decided to pull the trigger on a Rolex Oyster Perpetual replica with steel case. While in Italy, he started calling around – and finally ended up finding it in Basel, Switzerland. When he got back to the States, he had it engraved to commemorate the trip and signify it as the first watch in his collection.
Karim Said And His Omega Speedmaster
Karim, a longtime NASA enthusiast, coveted the black bezel copy Omega Speedmaster Professional throughout graduate school; years later, when he had the means (as well as a job at NASA), he was finally able to acquire it. At NASA, he’s had several watch-related encounters, including an elevator ride with Buzz Aldrin, complete with a shared-Speedmaster-appreciation fist bump.
