Hi -

Thanks for the link!

Gibson oftens mentions in his novels watches as a small detail to round out a charachter, like the Rolex on a pale leather strap worn by the psychotherapist/call girl in Count Zero who helped one of the main charachters get to know the new parts of his body when he was blown up and repaired... :)

Don't know if anyone here is a fellow gibson fan but he wrote a great article some years back on collecting mechanical watches, which he mentions in his writing regularly as well

Here it is:http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/7.01/ebay_pr.html
The same article here with pics (make sure you have a good pop-up blocker)

I am a huge Gibson fan … currently in the process of reading the bridge trilogy backwards (don’t ask). I am not going to repeat what I already said so …

If you put ‘Gibson’ into the search field here it should all come up:

These are the main ones:

If you put words like ‘Jaeger’, ‘wristwatch’, etc, into the ‘Find’ field here, you will find lots of interesting details
