Is Akrivia Bound for Glory?

Postby Racer-X » June 18th 2017, 12:21pm

by GaryG "If you follow the world of independent watchmaking, by now you’ve almost certainly heard of watchmaker Rexhep Rexhepi and his Akrivia watches. Since arriving on the scene in 2012 with its first tourbillon-based watch, Akrivia has continued to delight with a series of new introductions, most recently including its first non-tourbillon watch, the AK-06 that made its debut at Baselworld 2017."

In terms of the finishing, these watches are stunning, but this case just doesn't belong with that watch. About as good a pairing, as in an average frankenwatch.

'Rexhep Rexhepi'?! Since when did gyppos start making watches the cocks? The goddamn gyppos couldnt make a wet fart in a linen suit the pillocks. They should be out making carpets or military fuckups against the Israelis the fucking planks. Like there is no way I would strap on a fucking watch made by a fucking gyppo like some cooking-fat-masterbaiting lout fuck that shit no way Hossey. Id like to dig up Rexhep Rexhepis dead mum and roger her festering arse with my cock the plank.

Sincere Regards, Dirtbox.
