Yeah thank goodness that's included.

Speaking of "etc's" - had lunch with Jean Claude Biver and the Tag Heuer folks the other day, in light of the recent launch of the Tag Heuer | Google collab.

 

Not exactly running to the boutique to buy that "smart watch," but had a ton of fun just listening to JCB riff on watches, his history in the industry, auction prices these days, and the like. What an interesting, energetic dude!

 

 

That is my friend's 1972 A series ref 5402 he is fondling. He also quite liked my 3970, but said "I should have really gotten a 2499 ten years ago." I said I was still a teenager with no job ten years ago.

SEO, I am sure. And yes . . . it is awful. But more people google search for Breitling than, e.g., Nomos. So brands go in the name so traffic gets driven to the thread. NTTIAWWT

If SEO is the goal, I think we should've kept the 'watch p0rn' title.

Yeah, new thread title sucks. A point is very clearly being made.
post #47181 of 48312
^ The wrong point IMO.

Guess I'll have to show my new watch off in the PMW instead!

New thread title makes me want to make a concerted effort NOT to post watches from those brands, so... Screen%20Shot%202015-11-11%20at%209.15.11%20PM_zps0rqowdhx.png

Have a question for royal oak owners.

I purchased a jumbo a few months ago and have been very happy with it. However, there are some black on the stainless steel bracelet. They are where the clasp meets the bracelet and it seems there are some black marks on the clasp as well. Is this normal, and how would you go about cleaning it off? I have tried both hand soap, dish soap and a soft toothbrush to no avail.

If it's for SEO, then IWC and Panerai would make more sense than JLC.  But either way, there are enough mentions of all those names in this mega-thread for a title change to be unnecessary.

 

I find it a little patronising and offensive, whether or not that was the intention.  So there.

 

*But as I don't have any of those items cited, I will just go and fuck myself.

If they want traffic, they should just mention Tissot.
post #47188 of 48312

Maybe they will put that in the title of the PMW thread.  Tissot Tissot Tissot.  There, I said it.

 

Also, Michael fucking Kors.  Just for the spite of it.

I like Tissot as a brand, actually.  Just as a lot of people here like Hamilton: some consistently decent quality in a "proper" Swiss watch brand for under $1k, or even half that.  Bought one for my son and I rather liked it myself.  I think they're good value.
