Ralph Plaisted.

Well I have to say I had never heard of him until Omega very kindly sent me a copy of their special publication on the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Speedmaster.

Ralph Plaisted had of course very recently been on tour with Omega, promoting the Speedy's Fiftieth Anniversary.

Hey Zin. Wasn't that because the plastic tumblers wouldn't break easily and cause injury. It's all about the best use of materials for the job:001_smile:
