While there, I was sucked in to buying two new watches... brands I'd heard of but had never seen before in person. I know neither is available locally. The jewelers there (Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan) have some absolutely incredible stuff, and some (like Diamonds International for example... they are the biggest) can be found in the Caribbean after the season in Alaska ends in September or so.
I only have pictures of one to start.

The finishing is outstanding, and the micro-adjustable sliding clasp is fantastic. Built like a tank, and the dial and markers are beautiful. Too big for some, but I like it.
The lume lights up all night long too!
Bucherer owns Tourneau now, and they supposedly produce only about 25,000 pieces annually in Switzerland.
