    Interesting Article - Alton Brown and vintage watches.

    A pretty good read. A lot of of what he's saying, I can have sympathy with.

    I like that guy even more now.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Huge fan of Alton's. He traded his watch with another WIS a few years back, and it's mentioned here: http://www.goodeatsfanpage.com/abfp/...AltonWatch.htm

    I met him several years ago and he was wearing the Omega from that story. I highly recommend seeing one of his live shows if you are a fan. Very informative and entertaining, even if you don't cook.

    Heard of his show but never seen it. Have to respect a guy that favors a good ol' Tudor Sub though!

    My thoughts exactly. Love a good vintage Rolex sub. But when I see someone who appreciates the Tudor Sub for what it is - and doesn't subordinate it to it's Rolex sibling - they definitely go up a few notches in my book.

    I hadn't heard of him until ten minutes ago, but I like him.

    He's like the Mr. Wizard of cooking. Didn't know he was a WISard as well. Well done, Alton (though for me, medium rare).
    As it now stands:

    Crazy story about finding his father's watch after all those years.

    Damn good Dawg, too. (He went to the University of Georgia).

    I like the guy even more, now.
