    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hello,

    Things like this have been fabricated for a long time. A favorite is the .58 cal slug in the civil war waist belt plate. I find it funny that there are no stress cracks around the hole nor is the watch deformed in any way. If the bullet had enough force to go through the watch the force would also radiat out from the hit. I don't believe it.

    Yeah, in fairness it does say "trench art".

    That is a new one for me.
    There is no way in the world that during that time period they would have done that to a watch too pricey of a item.
    This is new item done that way.
    New code word for fake trench art
