Didn't the bloatster have a larger wrist than 7"? Maybe it was Wilsie...

Althought the watch is certainly a piece of horological shit, it does have the historical importance of being the torpedo that hastened the sinking of the R.M.S. Mink. I'll bet the collector was the late Big Joe, who, although having dubious taste, seemed like a good guy, a hero of 9-11, and through his enduring the revolting abuse of the WatchGeek management, showed sterling class.

Or it could have been Nicky Hayek.

Chunks apparently was the original owner of the watch. It has changed hands a few times since him.
Interestingly the auction is now over. I imagine the watch is trading wrists again outside of eBay.

Mink may well have done the world of watch collecting a true favor holding of on shipping these.

It says reserve was not met. Last bid was something around $360..... Looks to be about $200 too much imo.
