I'm so torn with this one. I love it. It speaks to me. Still, I ask myself, what are the odds that they release this in a Paint by Molly fluorescent green? Because that Bad Boy would be ME.
I imagine there are some loud conversations being had right now somewhere in Switzerland in order that one particular horological genius/Panamanian man-about-town can ascertain exactly why it is his company doesn't have a ripoff homage of this very piece on the teevee right now.
Honestly, the only reason I haven't pulled the trigger already is that I could not find a review of this model on my favorite wartch blog, and I will NEVER purchase a fine timepiece unless my opinion is verified by Ariel Adams. Fortunately, it always is as he has the gift of finding loveliness in anything sent to him in the mail from developing countries, rather like former Shop NBC hosts surfing the net for brides.
I have to thank you Mark1. I sheepishly admit this brand has not been on my radar, and that's on me. At first I missed the "A" in the logo and i thought the name was "Chtung" which, let's face it, would make a lot more sense. I went to their website and I recommend you all do the same, mach schnell, for it was there that I was exposed to some of the most terrifying life coaching since I accidentally tuned in to Dr. Phil. To wit: "take life in your stride, drop that facade and be who you want to be."
Just imagine Lords, the good Doctor emeritus, facade dropped, striding the hallowed halls of his former employer, sporting this orange behemoth of a wartch. Little wartches growing out the sides like goiters, offset by the screaming yellow zoot suit with a reet pleat, giant gold chains clanging as he grabs the posteriors of passing faculty members screaming "I gotta be ME!"
Bloody recipe for disaster, that is.

That was fucking beautiful, herr doktor, and wonderfully sums up This Thing of Ours.

That was so beautifully written that I can just see the person who actually likes this watch, reading this, and curling up into a ball of utter shame. Well done Doctor! 😁

Can't believe this badboy hasn't sold yet. Unfortunately I'm in the NBZ-zone or this grail would be in every WRUW thread for six months.
