proof im alive as I ran into @Shanejosephxxx today, we eyeballed each other behind masks for a bit until we finally realized it was us.

Also found a pair of Cartier Santos 62mm gordon gecko's yesterday for a tenner
Spoo I've been following your insta now and then and just wanna say that pic you posted in that crazy Levi's Olympics Shearling was the tits .post it here if you can.
The reason why I bring it up is the Canadian teams uniforms came out and are being roasted pretty bad.
What do you guys think ,who did it better for this year's summer games ?
My favorite line has been so far that the US team looks like it's ready to go to the moon while the Canadians are going to the skate park.

Canadians are only wearing the top half their tuxedos, so it's semi-formal.

Rather than just going "fake" and leaving it at that. I'll go in depth:

Now we can't know for certain if that eBay listing is legit.. but since that's what the store was basing their pricing off of we can compare it to the watch in question and point out numerous differences between the two:

Right away my eyes went to the bezel. The finish, font, sizing of marks and placement is pretty bad. Look at the 2 "30" marks. And then the top right area of the bezel with the lines... look how thick and close to the edge they are. The top lume dot (excuse the terminology, i'm not a horologist or obsessive collector) in the triangle appears to be completely missing as well.

The face/dial is pretty bad too. Those lume dots are so small, and the 6 o clock one is far too short.

Then the metalergy - The band.. The gaps between links is too large, and uneven/crooked looking. The brushed finish isn't correct, and the edges of the links are all rounded over too much.


I would've given the manager of that store a talking to.
Also a search would solve everything:


The pearl on top of the bezel is a good determination if it's fake or not. If it feels cheap, it probably is.

Great find @HansderHund ! That Valentino piece is dope.
