A hydro plated piece of shit

On the shop right now. Not a good screenshot but it's the best I could do.

They have outdone themselves on ugliness.

I had assumed "hydroplating" involved a half-pound of pot metal with Easter egg coloring being formed into the rough approximation of wartch with a 40 ton hydraulic press.

But "water transfer" is more plausible.

Does 'Hydro Plating' mean it's a water transfer print?
If it's the same thing as a decal, which I was dealing with when assembling Revell and Airfix models as a kid, it's in fact more shitty than the shittiest plating.

I Googled hydro plating and the first thing that came up was water transfer printing. This is when the print is floated on water and the things to be printed is pushed or rolled onto the media and it sticks. Fascinating to see done on car body parts, but I can't imagine that it is long lasting on a watch if worn regularly.

JAS ... they even want four hundred bucks for this thing? Who's their intended buyer, Edith Massey The Egg Lady? Baby piss in an elevator? The yorkie who has everything? I mean ... WTF times 10.

But then again - what's the over-under on PacerBuy getting one in each of the two sizes (52 and 42?)?

I would assume this is targeted toward the highly lucrative skinny-Jean-&-urban-street-art-tee-shirt-wearing, tat-laden, midlife-crisis-bearing, douche-nozzle divorcée market...
