The Iconic Lost Watch of D-Day
The Tom Rice
Tom Rice originally took part in Operation Overlord as part of the 101st Airborne troops that dropped into Normandy, France on D-DAY (June 6th 1944). As he jumped from his C-47 Skytrain, he lost his A-11 issued watch. When we heard the story, we knew we had to revive this legendary watch in honor of Tom & all other D-Day veterans.
