Nice video for those whom purchase quantity over quality, stokes their justification to continue purchasing multitudes of cheap rips.

We've all seen it--------
OMG, OMG, OMG looky at my $500 alibaba "homage" of a quality watch. I is soo proud to display something its not.

Same narrative about Gibson and Martin guitars at least since the 70s.

Guys voice was irritating and condescending. I couldnt see half the stuff he was calling out, the other half I couldnt care.

More like an ad for the best fake rolex

I would add that I adored every Rolex I have owned. They are originals, like Gibson, Martin, Harleys etc so it is up to Rolex to determine what makes a good Rolex.

The re-vooer is a dick with ears.
AKA a DWE. Served with an officer who got tagged with that moniker by the crew and it stuck. He was aware of it for a while without knowing what it was an acronym for.

When he learned, he was crushed.

Pleasant enough guy for a pedantic nerd but it was true. Eventually broke under stress and had to be confined to quarters under armed guard until we could offload him.

Left us short on the watch-bill, that didn't help his case.

Thanks for the memories!

Didn't want to give a YouTube mutt my click. Figured if I wait a bit, the Lords will give me the gist of it.
He's a bald-headed mook who thinks San Martin's homage of the Rollie GMT Master was actually a better watch than a Rollie GMT Master. I didn't actually watch the whole video, but enough to figure out the guy was a fucking moron.

You're welcome!

I guess this means we can soon pick up these Rolexes for pennies on the MSRP dollar. Please, just let me know when any of you see that 40mm Explorer II for the $800 Skelton said it is worth.

Skelton!! I haven't thought about that fucking loser in years. Anybody know whatever happened to that jerkoff? Or his felonious pal, Michael Davits?

YouTube has no barrier to entry. That video is a timely reminder.
Good example of what I have been counseling my son for years.

Internet is a really convenient place to look up facts. Way easier and more comprehensive than going to library like we used to.

But opinions? Fugedaboutit. Worthless. Worse than worthless, actually, leads one down pathological rabbit holes.
