Well the plan to have the JSAR or Jumbo SAR (Search and Rescue) on my wrist today was thwarted by FEDEX. I ordered a NOS first generation LGP (Le Grande Plongeur). Everything went smoothly and with the tracking information, we were able to track the movement of the watch. Talk about advance in IT and the Internet.
Anyway, I was impressed to note that the watch left the US on Wednesday (Thursday locally) and arrived here on Friday night. Wow, that is fast. That would mean that I could get it by today. How cool is that. Sadly FEDEX had other plans. Evidently it is 'on hold' with 'Not Due For Delivery'. Wow, even delivery has a due date? FEDEX?
Oh well, lets wait for a few more days and see what happens.
