How’s the new Drop “Pilot” program working out for you so far ?
Hey all, just curious if anyone has purchased any of the Bulova watches yet ? I’m curious as to how this new idea is working out thus far and what qualifies it as successful program ?

Btw random pic just for color lol

It would be great if Drop with its barganing power could make the watch more affordable for its members. What do you think? Is there enough interest in our community for this homage to a great classic?
As a kid growing up in Southern California, I never actually went diving, but I knew the most famous SCUBA diver in all of Hollywood, Mike Nelson! I watched his show, "Sea Hunt” religiously. Every show was great--lots of adventure and plenty of underwater knife fights, shrouded in bubbles, and Mike never lost one of ‘em!
Of course back then, I could barely tell time, but fast-forward a few more years, and I was almost a teenager. By that time, the surf scene was in full swing and the Beach Boys and the Association were playing on every kids transistor radio out by the pool. None of us were old enough to drive or have our own cars yet, but a few of the cool kids had older brothers who were, and if you could drive in Southern California at that time—you drove to Huntington Beach (or Redondo, or Zuma, or Malibu)!
Surfing and Surfers were a huge cultural influence at the time and besides baggies and deck shoes, the one thing every cool surfer guy had to have (besides...
