    Firmly clichéd gender roles, the man holding the movement and writing on technical papers, the woman attending to the strap whilst proximate to the bit of golden metal

    Excellent point. Gender bias clearly actually present in observer. Have sent myself off to reeducation camp.

    The photo is still silly nonsense. There seems to be an inversely proportionate relationship between the solidity of a company and the overreaching images they use (cf the obligatory handdrawn pictures included in most watch kickstarter campaigns)

    Lol this exchange reminded me of a scene from Blackadder (first 30 seconds or so)

    You really have to give them credit for putting together a picture in which there is no real logical connection between any of the elements. Dumb luck should have allowed them to at least have one logical connection.
