(A powerful steamer that just knocks all of the dirt/build up off)

I'm hoping to get a staff gig at a studio and am doing a little superhero stuff for the portfolio. I call this one "Fake Superman"*

 

...but until I'm no longer a (sort of) starving artist I'll be wearing $60 watches...

At the top of the list of things I don't consider when purchasing a watch is how much ass I can get with the purchase.

Well said - if the watch is gonna seal the deal, those aren't the girls I am targeting.

Awesome work, Bill. I didn't know you're an artist. Great stuff! smile.gif

Sorry, I have another watch on the way, so I'll get back with proper watch posts shortly shog[1].gif

But what do you guys prefer?

 

 

 

I don't speak for anyone else on here, but I prefer not to refer to real. live human beings as "ass." Oh, and I'm not an Hublot fan, either.

I don't know much about watch maintenance, so this is a genuine question: can you really clean a watch with a steamer? Doesn't it get too hot? I mean metal expanding et cetera?

No it isn't bad for it. I mean as long as you're not taking a blow torch to it. Stainless steel can take the heat of a steamer. My source is that I work at a jewelry store and I trained with the watch maker for a bit lol with rolex timepieces of course

How do you normally refer to pussy then? What do you not like about Hublot? It is a brand with very high Prestige here in Moskva.

 

I was answering your question, but yeah, my answer is equal opportunity--anyone can read it. You'll also notice I explicitly said I'm not speaking for anyone else here. That means I'm not at all a spokesman for "proper conversation term[s]."

 

As for Hublot, I just don't like any of the designs. Too flashy for me. 

 

That said, I haven't been to Moscow since '89, and I imagine it bears little resemblance to the city I spent time in during the heyday of Perestroika!

A quick photo of the Oysterquartz that I started off wearing this morning, next to the Explorer II that I'm now wearing this afternoon. 

how much was that service?

The Hublot is very recognized design that has Elite writtin all over it. That is why here high class in Moskva likes it a lot and gets a lot of oooh and aaah.

 

Compliments for the Russian term. You speak Russian? Very impressed. Luckily the Perestroika days are long gone and our stable government now provides for real democratic market economy where business florish and money can be made. Everything is different for good of everybody. You should come again and experience the new Moskva. Is there a discussion here discussion the majow cities like Moskva london and new york? I could add good reviews about Moskva and share some of the opposite sex equal rights pictures from the discotheques and clubs. As well as photos from Elite cars and Elite Shops.

 

Sadly I don't speak Russian, just a couple phrases. I'd love to visit today's Moscow, and will eventually. Glad to hear you speak so highly of opportunity in Moscow today.

 

Back to the Hublot--yeah, I can see what you're saying. The thing is, oohs and aahs are not among my criteria for watch kopping, though I don't have any big problem with other people selecting timepieces for those reasons.

I'm already married, so I don't need a watch to get me a woman, not that I would ever use such an item for such a purpose. Besides, my wife married me when I was poor (not that I'm much more than that now happy.gif ), so I count myself very blessed indeed.

Likewise on all counts.
