    Michael Crichton and Jules Verne are my favorite authors. While Jusles Verne didn't have a wrist watch probably, does this look like a vintage Omega Speedmaster??

    Looks like the 1976 model I used to own.

    That is awesome, Chip! He sure has exceptional taste in watches :thumbsup: I see you are craving another Speedmaster. If so and this is what you want for the spring drive I would say go for it and never look back :rocker:

    I think you're right, Chip! It does seem to be a Speedy Pro. :thumbsup:

    Imho, Jules Verne would have picked a Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller, had he been able to wear a watch of our time.

    I think he would have picked:

    Deep Sea-Dweller for 20000 Leagues Under the Sea

    Omega Speedmaster for From Earth To Moon

    Rolex Explorer II for Journey to the Center of the Earth

    Omega Speedmaster for Around the Moon

    Rolex GMT Master or Breitling Emergency for Around the World in 80 Days

    Omega Seamaster Professional Chronograph for The Mysterious Island

    Breilting Navitimer for Robur the Conqueror

    ETC.... :smile::smile:

    I like your suggestions. I can't tell by the band what kind of watch he is wearing, but did enjoy reading some of his books.

    BTW Chip, do you like Rick Wakeman's Jurney To The Center Of The Earth?
    One of the BEST progressive rock Album ever made.
