I'm not kidding. Bezelous.com (?) is yet another site that just magnifies everything that's wrong with the Interweb - edited by something called "Adam," - lots of "I, me, my," a real gernilist - the site posts Phluff-like reviews of mostly mid-tier watches, as well as "Swiss Army knives, Opinel knives and Parker pens," according to its opening page. Also claims that some posts are "sponsored." One can only imagine that this thing is probably close to what Jim Skelton would have come up with his Man Beast or Alpha Mega site or whatever tasteless name he would have bestowed it, had it ever developed.
The amazing thing about Bezelous (unreal) are the supposedly serious interviews with people who post YouTube watch reviews out of their mother's basements and the like, such as Andy Hunter ("famed" for his early Invicta rant where he mispronounced the name of the brand constantly), Armand The Watch Guy (???), The Urban Gentry, a few others I'm not going to waste energy while I'm on this planet to push a button to view ... and, of course, Archie Luxury.
I'm going to link this to the Archie interview (the site even claims to have paid Archie for the interview); pay particular attention to the comments section, where it's revealed that Archie, during his international travels where he begs online for spending money, apparently posted some rather unsavory videos as well as claimed to do something I don't even want to repeat here. Archie isn't just annoying - I'm starting to think there's a real problem here.
There are some real douchebags in this hobby, and apparently, most of them end up on YouTube, where everyone is an "expert' and nobody's accountable for a fucking thing. Bezelous.com is just about the most disgusting watch-related website I could ever imagine; it's like intentionally going wading in a street puddle.
