I'm sure if you look real hard DarHin you must have one rolled gold plate or fill :)

You know, I thought I did but I can't seem to find it. The chrono is SS.

BTW, I fully blame mybulova.com for my last few acquisitions. Since I joined about 6? weeks ago I've completely lost my mind.

The reason my Patriot's have were updated was that I had to re-enter the model info as it appears that the duplicate Patriot model has been deleted and mine were entered under that one. No other info has been added or edited.
