Morning Reading -- Israel Recovers Watch of Its Spy

Here's an interesting article about Israel's recent recovery of the watch worn by its 1960s spy, Eli Cohen -- Israel’s Secret Operation to Recover the Watch of a Legendary Spy.

Cohen lived an interesting life, and the information that he secured for Israel was critical to Israel's success in the Six Day War.

The article reports that Cohen wore an Omega, but watch spotters will see quickly that it is an Eterna-Matic Centenaire 61.
