My Dad would be pissed I spent more than $50 on a watch.




BTW do you spend all day searching the interwebz for Bremont stuff to post? It's cute :grin:

Mine too. He would probably rethink letting me take over as the family trustee.

If I tried to do this to my dad, he would be pissed as well.


That I grew up to be a Bremont fanboi.

Silly Dad, it's supposed to be evocative of the brown streak a pilot leaves on the seat prior to ejecting to safety.

Pretty much. :love:

Seriously, believe it or not there are other forums than DWC (though not 1% as good) and I frequent two Bremont ones from time to time; if there's cool stuff I post it here.

When he opened the pouch and said "oh this is excellent" I thought for sure he had no idea what the gift was. :D Great video though, and likewise, if I ever gave my dad a watch that wasn't quartz or cost more than $50, he'd be trying to slip me a C-note any way he could.

I want to hear more from the guy who can't figure out if shitty lume application is a feature or a flaw. Please report back any findings.

Well done Terry. My dad loved watches - I wish I'd given him one.

Can't really see any reason to shit in this thread, but to each their own.

Cool vid, and an even cooler gesture.

I thought the video was weird. At first it seemed like the old guy had no clue what was even happening.
I've never video taped myself giving a present, but then again I don't even have Facebook.
