Revisiting a Personal Favorite - The BR V2-94 BELLYTANKER

This one came out a while ago, but as I always say, watches aren't milk or eggs, they don't go off with age.

Some pieces just stick with you, and the BELLYTANKER has stayed with me some some time.  This one is a bit special.  I am particularly drawn to what my fellow sneaker heads refer to as the "color way".  Black and white is easy.  Blue and white is a gimme.   Not quite your traditional copper, and not really beige at all.  It is unique, something that not everyone is going to get or appreciate.  But that's part of why I dig it.

Here are the pertinents -
