The Emergence Of RedBar

Post by Racer-X » December 1st 2018, 4:36am

"When it comes to the watch hobby, it’s a fundamental article of faith for me that it’s really all about the people! In my home area of California, in New York, and elsewhere I’ve had the pleasure of joining up with members of RedBar Group, the rapidly expanding global network of watch enthusiasts founded by Adam Craniotes.

Craniotes was kind enough to chat with me about not only the organizational history of RedBar, but also its current and future business models and how he sees RedBar’s place in the world of watch enthusiasm."

Guess this increases the number of assholes named Adam in the community to at least two.

In one pic in that interview... Are they drinking whisky from shot glasses? If so, that's quite fucking uncivilized, and tells me all I need to know about the sodding lot of them.

Quite so. The bestest way to get jaked PDQ is straight from the bottle, like a real man. Why, some of those jagoffs are so ghey, they're wearing nail polish!!

Presumably we’re all more classy fellows than them wankers would want to have as a part of their potty club.

I joined and went once to the Portland Redbar. It was OK, but I had more fun hanging out with the other Lords who went than the non-Lord members of the club. They seemed to be OK guys, younger, and not really stuck up or anything. I haven't gone again because it's a two and a half hour drive to Portland, and my work schedule rarely allows me to go.

Frankly, even the name’s peculiar. I mean, Red Bar? Isn’t that somewhere by the Scargill Pub and Café Lenin?

Now then, Mr. Bloke; in this thing of ours, sometimes we can veer into the lane of extravagance. Watchlords? Some would say that calling outselves this is nutz. Naturally, they are wrong, but there it is. We know better. If a bunch of guys want to get together and call themselves Redbar, good for them. If some see them as pretentious louts, well, that's their lookout. If they honestly want to further the cause of watches, then they are my brothers. If they are pretentious louts, allow me the first to hammer a Cabriole table leg into their fucking asses.

2 1/2 hours??? I wouldn't drive 2 1/2 hours even if Avi was allowing a hands on inspection of her XO skeleton.
