best steel sports watch of all time

Post by koimaster » July 26th 2020, 10:29pm

In the rarefied air of the high-end sports watch, the Patek Philippe Nautilus is still the King. You could fill your day reading pages of passionate prose that argue the merits of the watch relative to others, but there is something about the Nautilus that sets it apart from a less cerebral point of view. Pure feel.

In fact, when the Time+Tide editorial team sat down earlier this year and picked out a single ‘grail watch’, 66.6% of the team picked the Nautilus, while the other 33.3% were simply wrong. The Nautilus is certainly King in this dominion.

Before we get too much further into the Nautilus story, let’s firstly deal with some definitions. Yes, this is a ‘sports watch’, although obviously not a replacement for your G-shock or Garmin GPS watch. It comes from an era when there were “dress watches” (typically thin, classical watches in gold cases) and more casual ‘sports watches’, which were a little larger and bolder. But for ‘sports’, think Country Club sipping gin rather than surfing the breaks.

Or, you don't have to be a cunt and realize that the Rolex Sub is the best sports watch in the world. In the most important metric, which is more likely to get your dick sucked, a PP or a Rolex? I rest my case.
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.

Must be where we live. In my town, the sub will get you the head PLUS a Mickey in your drink; when you wake up in your hotel room without your watch the next morning, you'll read all about it in the New York Post, the Tad's Steaks of area journalism. But in NYC? If you are sporting a PP, you will attract someone who looks like an extra from Casino Royale, and it's a whole 'nother class of thing: The story of your theft and drugging will appear in the New York Times instead.

The endless 'best' discussions are beyond silly.

The only way a Rolex is going to get your dick sucked is if you use it as payment.

Money does have a way of attracting a certain type of female, if my young 20s count for experience. Fortunately I had better sense than to settle down with any of those girls but it did matter, at least to them. There really are women, and men alike I suppose, out there, “gold diggers” who look at clothes, cars, jewelry.

“Mythbusters” even did a segment comparing how attractive women thought men were given only a photo and a profession.

Surprise, surprise...women scored the same men’s photos as significantly more attractive when they thought the men had high paying jobs.

It is true that money is the greatest aphrodisiac.

Granted, I certainly wasn't saying that wearing a Sub (or, in earlier, better days as Mr. Loaf points out, an 18k Day Date or Datejust) would deliver to you a June-Cleaver-like soul-mate, who would keep your house, be a fine wife, and raise your kids in such a way as to keep them off Meth and in college instead of the joint.

I was just saying that it would get your dick sucked, or joint copped, or whateverthefuck you want to describe casual oral copulation.

If you want to find the perfect mate, then don't rely on men's jewelry, which the Rolex Sub certainly is. Instead, go through life, meet people, and hopefully, you will meet the perfect mate, get married, have a life, have kids, and not get divorced. You will have your ups and downs; if you hang on, and give things a chance, you will indeed meet your soul mate, and have some Thanksgiving dinners that don't end up on America's Most Fucked Up Videos.

However, if you want nothing more than to get your dick sucked, and you lack a flash car, a good physique, a male model's face, etc., and the only thing you have going for you is a Rolex Sub. then you are more likely to have a broad's face in you lap (apart from NYC, where, according to T's very fine reporting, a Patek is better) than wearing, say, a Citizen Eco-Drive, which will probably won't even reward you with a handjob from a skank wearing adult diapers, assuming you throw in a double sawbuck.

I hope this has made my ideas more clear, as if I needed to with you stupid bastards. Carry on!
