Let it be... You posted crap and most here called you on it... Continue to show you your geekness.


As long as one is making "You're a geek" claims, you could at least learn to spell better than one. Otherwise your intended slam kinda loses its lustre... just sayin'...


Its kinda like sexting your wife or signifigant other. You can get all hot and heavy in your words, but once you or she mis-spell something in in your lust filled texts, it really ruins the moment.



Correct on all accounts...
Turns out I'm the Bloody Douche' tonight.

My opinion stands... A Chinese made tourbillon would be a perfect gift. Buy em by the dozen.

That Renalto tourby would be neat to see for about 5 minutes...then it would be relegated to bottom of the sock drawer.
Don't own a Renalto..probably never will. My taste have ran the whole range from hideous IWG and Androids to the more simple 3 hand classic manual/autos.
If however I my good taste disappears...that Tourby will be my first pick up.

Way to comment on something you've never owned bro. Good stuff.

So in order to comment on something you must have owned it? I've read this sentiment before and it always baffles me. What's the point of the letter, of promotional materials, of photos if you must own it to comment and make a decision about something.

Spinners premise that you must own something in order to comment on it is stupid and moronic.

What the fuck? Why would I spend money on something I find hideous? I also don't trust Mink. He's a con-man just like Laylo. You on the other hand..Meh. You won't be here long enough for me to put your dumb ass on ignore.

My watch deal has been a natural progression. And while I do own 1 Renato (I like and will keep) this one does not fit into the scheme of things. I doubt I will ever get another Renato. For 600 bucks I could root out a damn good watch.
After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

Doubtful he's Lumpy Turdling. The "Bro" he used sounds more like 50mmormore. That and "Go have a drink man" reeks of a Geek wannabe Mod. We all know that 50mmandthensome would give his left nut to be a Mod at WG's

I am not going to lie, I own a few Renatos, I like some of the colors they use. But I bought them dirt cheap (sub $100 used), wear them while working on my car and taking out the trash to save the beating on my nice watches. and when they break down, they will go in the trash. But they word collector and Renato does not belong together in the same sentence. Just like Asian Tourbillon is an oxymoron.


But I do find it humorous how some of those WG's are running home from work to buy them, lol.

Wow that's clever. You are #1 in the book of cool now. You are telling ME to go suck Mink's dick when YOU own "a few" Renatos. I own 1 of them. Goofball.

Wow, I'm touched. You are hanging on my every word..and nuts apparently.

You guys are fun to play around with. You become the very Geeks you despise each time you have disagreements with someone else.

( Here we desagree, I think is actually tragic)

As for Spinner comment ...you don't need to own a particular watch to know if is good or shit.
It will do wonders for both of you, to stop the pissing contest, discussing Mink's dick and do some research and or reading on watches .

DB,

Yeah, that's the way I feel about it, too. For that same money I could pick up a pretty good watch without any compromising. I actually think the black one is kinda attractive, but buying a Chinese tourbillon is settling for something lesser - period.

It's better not to own something at all than to settle for something lesser.

Buying a Chinese Tournbillon is kinda like listening to the local high school orchestra play Beethovens Fifth Symphony.
The idea is present but the execution and finished product just ain't the same as when Breguet or the NY Philharmonic do it.

I think its more like a dick measuring contest and they're using a 50MM watch to determine the winner. I guess the one who gets closest to the crown wins?
