RIP, Don Nunley -- He Put the Monaco on McQueen's Wrist

Rest in Peace, Don Nunley -- 1939 to 2021.

As property master of the movie Le Mans (1970), Don was the man who put the Monaco on Steve McQueen's wrist. In recent years, he was generous with his time and information about McQueen, Le Mans and the watches.

After chatting with Don by email and telephone for 14 years, I was able to meet him in Summer 2017.

Don was a wonderful, sweet man, who lived with humility and gratitude.

My tribute is here --
