    From Air Blue, this lightweight watch is the only co-pilot you need as its round silver-tone stainless steel case lands on your wrist. Topped with a fixed bezel, it's cool, calm and collected even when your calendar's not. You'll find a crown on the right and the colored Blue Angels insignia on the case back as a textured strap buckles with accent stitching.



    The enamel dial is cleared for takeoff no matter what kind of flight plan you've got ahead of you. You'll be all bombs away on a bad day with a date window near 4:00 and luminous accents throughout. Clean and clear, the dial makes it easy to be on-time and stay on-time with the Blue Angels shield above 6:00 and "Air Blue" below 12:00.

    Blue Angels Demonstration Squadron
    An air demonstration squadron with aviators from the Navy and Marines, the Blue Angels team is the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world. Formed in 1946, demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet aircraft, often splitting into the Diamond Formation to perform loops and barrel rolls.

    I paid $133.00 for mine and that was a great price for 9015 auto and sapphire. $53.99 had to be below cost IMO.

      $53.99? 9015 auto, sapphire with a/r, and superluminova? I don't own one of these, but why are they selling so cheap?
