    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I don't think she's actually a Rolex Ambassador, but if she was, it would turn me off the brand in a split second. She is however, wearing a Rolex, in this picture.

    Andy Murray is a Rado ambassador, doesn't influence me one way or another.
    Bulova sponsoring Man Utd makes me never want to own one again...

    Call me an anti-capitalist (I'm definitely not!), but I never understood celebrity endorsements at all, unless they were functional. They show Murray hitting a speed bag (very lightly!) with the watch on, but they don't show him playing tennis in a match with it on. If they did, and said the watch was tough enough for that, maybe it would influence me if I were looking for a watch to play tennis with. Otherwise, who cares what a celebrity thinks is a good watch?

    I wonder why they didn't use a more recent realistic picture.
    Even his grandma is quoted as saying he hasn't been cute looking since Titanic.
