Hi Anthony, That is absolutely a great reto-watch for the American Classic! As what ever who looks at that, they have a feellign to " go and get one!" I am already asked to buy for my colleagues for 3 pieces , excluding the one I want.
But it seems that I have to wait until September or even October.
