    Its my good deed of the day

    I'm sure I've missed a good few and probably made some mistakes in spelling and such so please feel free to point those out, to correct any misleading information and to contribute with suggestions to be added to the list.

    And what does RXW mean? I notice it gets mentioned with the Panerai's. Are the RXW Panerai's from a particular dealer or factory?
