The fabulous story of Seppo and his B52806 150m Citizen
I had a dream – a dream about watches, adventures and open waters. I had a dream about freedom, and friendship, about trust, duty and honor.
It was the late ‘60s – a time of change. We had the moon landing, not because it was easy, but because it was hard. We had the Beatles and Bob Dylan. We experienced Woodstock, raced cars with naturally aspirated roaring engines, smelled the burning rubber and the exhaust gas. We watched Paul Newman films, surfed under the So Cal sun or enjoyed a glass of vino rosso somewhere on a hill in Tuscany.
Freedom, adrenaline, sex, innovation.
I had a dream about the time when a watch was so much more than jewelry, when its purpose was to indicate time and it was used in the way it was always meant to be: racing, diving, flying or timing important events, even in space or on the Moon.
Yes, I’m talking about....

Thanks for the great read.
Back in the 70's I was a welder for Westinghouse in So. California. High up on the wall of the main work area was a huge banner that read : Why is it there is NEVER enough time to do a job right, but ALWAYS enough time to do it over ?
