Takes a licking...

Via Olbermann:

(B)est advertisement for a watch, Bulova. In 1941, British Navy Lieutenant Teddy Bacon threw a line from his ship HMS Repulse to the shore at Gibraltar Harbor. His wrist watch flew off and into the soup. Lieutenant Bacon left the description of the watch and his address with the harbor master. Last week what arrives in the mail? The watch. They were dredging the harbor and they found it, 67 years later and it still runs.

So, machinery superb, quality of wrist band, not so hot.
