Good catch Mark.  It sure got by me.  This is where experience pays off....I haven't been at this watch collecting thing long enough to be able to notice the subtle differences between those three syllable words....especially when they both start with W and end with R.  :)

I also noticed the watch owner guessed at the year of production. I need to pay closer attention to the details in the root record
