Thread: INCOMING - Tony says: "It's GREAT!"

  1. #1

    INCOMING - Tony says: "It's GREAT!"

    I bought this (for pocket change) because:

    1) It's 45mm in diameter (big is good, right?) [but look at the location of the sub-seconds!]

    II) Rumor has it there's a Zenith movement under there, somewhere [must be worth 1 DenneyPoint]

    C) I plan on a matching tattoo on the other wrist

    4) It's Quartz and I'm tired of winding and setting my watches

    V) Ed Hardy is the pre-eminent artist of his generation

    F) The Princeton Band

    I wonder if it runs?

    Now, my only problem is...when and where will I wear it? And...what's the right color NATO to complete the effect?

    I think the right colour Nato is no Nato so it falls off your wrist immediately and smashes

    In all seriousness, not my taste, but it you like it and get some fun out of it then grrreat

    Part of the fun of a large collection is that not every piece has to conform to the same standards of "taste".

    This one is "less filling".

    Very, very true
    And I am hardly one to talk as I am expecting delivery today of this.

    Bought for many of the same reasons: big, cheap, not like anything I have

    We will all be jealous in 20yrs when it is a much sought after piece and worth a fortune , what else would you wear with your vintage wardrobe. This may be one of the few to be preserved

    Yes, because a man needs a watch for every outfit.

    Otherwise, how would he stand out in this mundane world?

    No Denney points. At the price (even at retail), if the movement is Zenith, it's from the Zenith Plastic Watch Movement Factory Number 12, of some interior Chinese city.

    And when I see the watches showing his art designs on the dials of fake Royal Oaks, The points balance goes negative.

    Nothing wrong with goofy watches, but deception is deception.

    The Princeton Band reference earns you hayday points if, and only if, one actually played in the Princeton Band. Attending Princeton does not count; you had to have played in the band for it to count.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
