I've never been a guy who likes a lot of flash. Anybody who's ever
seen me knows I don't go for expensive clothes, or fancy cars, or the
latest styles. I shop at the Gap and Land's End. I don't have
expensive paintings or jewelry. I travel light. I'm a simple kind of
guy.

But the Changeling sale was such a major event, such a
transformational experience, that I thought...this really has to be
something special to mark the moment. A once in a lifetime splurge.

So I got something I've long wanted: the Torneau Gotham Tahiti del Sol
watch. It's my lucky watch, and I only wear it to big events and
important meetings. The rest of the time I just kind of look at it
and smile.
