I've always wondered if these are real diamonds.

Do we have the answer on this? I just bought the same watch. Looks like 3 diamonds to me, but I am not a gemologist, Sociologist. lol. Scott

Geoff,

Did this one come with the hang tag naming it the 'DIRECTOR'??

So many words would not have been written in the last two weeks if it HAD!

Been watching all the hoopla around Bob's beauty, I recollect that I named this fellow based on his. I still have a gut feel that is really is Director and await the outcome of the ongoing debate,

anxiously.
