As someone who is a fan of poker and occasionally plays online at Pokerstars I just had to purchase this, I thought it may be a bit of a lucky charm whilst playing, unfortunately, it didn't turn out for me that way, but that's likely just me being a terrible player! Either way, this is a great opportunity to pick up a TAG Heuer Aquaracer with something a little more going on, a cool talking point regardless.
