This arrived today. I’ve been searching for this watch for a long time. The 1980s series tv show was one of my favorites. This watch is almost identical to the one Tom Selleck (Thomas Magnum) wore in the first couple of seasons before he switched to the Rolex GMT Master. I say almost because this has Tritium lume and thus has the T Swiss Made T at the bottom of the dial instead of the Swiss Made stamp on Selleck’s watch. Nevertheless, I’m stoked to finally have it.

I‘ve never found the backstory on why Selleck wore this watch. In the series he once set the timing bezel for a scuba dive and then there was a whole episode on the GMT Master that he switched to for the rest of the series. Interesting on why there was obvious watch interest by the writers/producers.
