Considering its age this film must be familiar to most. However, it is clear, concise and is the film that really started me on a journey with landmarks many of you will know. Interest, fascination, obsession, poverty, divorce, prison and exile. I may be exaggerating somewhat, but you get my drift.

This wonderful film hooked me on watches. Seiko did the rest.

Correction: my wife has told me to point out that I have never been to prison, I chose Spain and I'm not divorced. Obviously.

If you haven't watched this channel its videos, Simon, Mark Lovick is well worth a watch. His videos are subscription based on the forum associated with it but many on YouTube are great.

Edit> Never mind, the same video, just without all the stuff at the beginning with the hose.
