OK, admit it... which watch brand names can you just not get past?

Post by Bradystraps » Thu Oct 18, 2018 4:27 pm

As in, can't purchase because of their name. I will start with the obvious so we get it out of the way now... Karlskrona.

My list (I'm sure I will think of more as I see other's lists): :lol:


Limes
Junkers
U-Boat
Croton
Seagull
Wanker
Shinola
Lew and Huey
Undive
Deep Blue


BTW... a number of these make designs I actually like very much. But......

I struggle with Orient. Don’t care for the logo either.

The teenager in me finds it difficult to take Ball seriously as well....hehehe

Scurfa - sounds like you'll need multiple trips to a vet.
If someone tells you "Anal leakage sounds like fun", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

Limes and Deep Blue doesn’t bother me. Most of the others I would never consider purchasing regardless of name.

There’s many I see these days whose names I don’t like.

To be honest, breitling is a weird name to me as well as Audemars etc but I can look past it.

I don't mind so much if the brand is someone's surname, like Breitling (Léon Breitling) or Audemars (Jules Louis Audemars), or even Ball (Webb C. Ball)...Parnis nope.

Blancpain. I know it is the founder's last name, but I just keep thinking "white bread".

Still love the watches though.
