James Cox, who was studying human ecology at the College of the Atlantic, Bar Harbor, Maine in the mid-1980s had no idea he would become part of the most famous wristwatch story of the century. Enchanted by a beautiful blonde girl who drove her Datsun car like a bat out of hell and threw what-are-you-looking-at stares at anyone who dared to notice, Cox made it his mission to get to know her. Nell Potts was the girl, and she used a pseudonym so that she could have the anonymity that she desired. She and Cox started dating after a hot chase. Only then did Cox realize that Nell is the daughter of Hollywood legend Paul Newman.
Cox, who had been living with Nell for a decade, offered to restore the treehouse that was on the Newman property in Connecticut. Nell, a passionate peregrine fanatic, spent her time restoring the structure. The maple tree which supported the original 1960s treehouse continued to grow and crushed the structure. It took five weeks to rebuild.

But I was a young kid and he's the dad of my girlfriend so I wanted to strike that balance between familiarity, and respect."
