His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama visited Iceland in June 2009. On arriving he was welcomed by a Volunteer Organization called Friends of Tibet and received as a welcoming gift a JS Watch co. Reykjavik 101 watch.
The Dalai Lama's commitment to the Tibetan cause can only be described as timeless. So, is the spiritual leader's penchant for watches.
"I just like watches. I have 15 watches now, they are mostly gifts. My first watch was given to me by President (Franklin) Roosevelt.
"I like watches, I don't know why. Maybe, because I am a reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama.
