"The Concorde is great. It gives you three extra hours to find your luggage." – Bob Hope
Pilot Leslie Scott's watch had been sitting in a safety deposit box for many years. Now retired, he wears an Apple Watch, and for most of his career, including the record-breaking flight he's known for, he wore a Seiko that he's lost track of. But it's this watch that means the most to him.
The battery was long dead, nary a character displayed on either of the two digital screens that characterize the Breitling Aerospace ref. 65062. Except this wasn't any ordinary Breitling Aerospace. In place of the standard applied marker at 9 o'clock is an "M2" symbol, and at 3 o'clock, a side profile of the British Airways Concorde, a supersonic airliner known for traveling from New York to London in under three hours, less than half the time of any other contemporary airliner.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
