These watches have filled me with such an unspeakable ennui that I can't even find the strength to hammer a Cabriole table leg up my ass.

Typical stock parts assembled in China with special “length challenged” hands. Since they managed to acquire some ETA movements I am betting they’ll want $600+.

Better off buying a Phoibos at 1/3-1/2 the price and solid quality.

First time I've ever seen Cthulu used as a logo / brand ambassador.

Hey where's my dive watch?
I think that's it over there,
They all look alike to me,
It must be what they wear.

Damn. Just wiped away the slightest little tear.
