"I Joined the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in 1967 at the age of 19 and went in search of my dreams... By now I was the ripe old age of 20 and it had become increasingly apparent to me that in order to prove my manhood I needed to buy a watch. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the one for me. An Omega Seamaster !!!! Wow, it had everything. Name, flashy looks and not only looked expensive but was expensive. It cost me £50 a small fortune."
