Austin in WatchTime Magazine Info...

Austin is featured in the July issue of WatchTime Magazine.

Inside the magazine:

Managing Editor Mark Bernardo profiles wrestler-turned-actor “Stone Cold” Steve Austin – a tough guy with a collection of rough-and-tumble luxury watches.

Quote from Austin: "I approach watches like a new pair of shoes: You're going to bang that thing sooner or later and that first scratch hurts!"

Here's a quote from a reader:

I found several things interesting about Austin. While he said he always loved Kobold watches, he was hesitant to purchase them via the internet. Apparently, his manager is a watch lover as well and got Michael Kobold to make a watch especially for one of Austin's recent films. So, now Austin owns two Kobold's - both Arctic Divers.

One of the most interesting things about the article was Austin's perspectives on owning timepieces. Although he says he can buy almost any watch he wants, he limits himself to watches costing less than $10,000 - a perspective I share out of necessity . Austin has a great collection of watches.

I will have scans this weekend!!!
