For fuck's sakes. I'm not saying anything this time. The last time I did, I damned near fucked up the Special Relationship.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

There are two things about this watch that grind my gears. First: the oversized logo, and this font is much less fitting than the 1940s-1950s one would be. Second - it's a clone of the Explorer ref.1016. A direct copy of such a simple dial design is simply a lack of creativity. One can easily use it as an inspiration, and make something that's not a clone. The original Smiths company had a lot of cool models throughout its history, so why the fuck did Timefactors need to copy a Rolex? Homage, hommidge, boring!!!

And, the original Smiths Everest was a revolting piece of motherfucking shit. D'oh! There I go again.

The truth is, Mr.Conjurer, that if I'd have one of these - on a good-looking strap to make it look even better - and show it off here at the joint, it'd give you a boner that'd destroy your zipper.
