What were they thinking?

Post by Steve O. » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:45 am

From aBlogtoWatch today. Although some here may like it, this is possibly the ugliest watch that I have ever seen.

Even Danny T would agree that watch is too much.

Can totally see what you are saying Steve. :thumbsup: I think they were maybe thinking
lets make something summer-like, or even Swatch-like this time around sir.

Not that it's my style, or a lot of ours', but could actually see this one attracting
a lot of people's attention. Just because the time of the year, and how different
it is honestly.

It's at least fun to see, and talk about Steve ! :grin: Thanks very much !!!

I actually read the article for a while, I was just curious what the case was made of. (it's coated steel) I got to the point where the guy says he "designed a new dial"... Wait what? I think I've seen that dial design somewhere before. :think: :shrug:

Cool that it can exist since it is very different, but I am not a buyer.

It's not my cup of tea.
It's funny that they had to use a Mercedes hand.. That's some silly shit.

Hahahaha

He started a company called BLK + YLW??????


Cerakote is a shitty case material too, as it’s not durable at all, so be prepared for a lot of BLK + YLW + CRACKS.

Plus, the cracks, I mean CRKS, will give the watch a “worn in patina.”
