You see, Mr. X, this is the sort of thing that Conjurer 2.0 should have made, instead of the hateful, and not to say racist, comment that I so hatefully posted above.

Instead of making fun of Italian watchmaking, I should have noted all the brands over the centuries that they have graced us with. Like Panerai. And... Ah... There's gotta be another... Nope, just Panerai. But what a brand! The Italians hit the horological ball so far out of the park, what the fuck do they need with another brand?

The thought of these jokers having 196,000 euros to play with is genuinely worrying.

Currently up to $2,270,000 or so the claim is. I keep getting spammed by them with bullshit stories.

Interesting article. These greasy-ass bastards make Eyal look like a piker.

Looks like a cross-breed of Bernie Madoff and Stauer... Fucking crooks.

The movement is quite definitely by Miyota, with a module on top of it.

I mean, wow. These two articles are really something.

Things like these cheeseballs, Invicta, and Stauer are the Benny Hinns of horology - they promise salvation for just a few bucks, but in the end it's all utter bullshit.
