Perhaps a good illustration of the old maxim that no-one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the [watch-buying] public...

What makes it even more insane is that, according to the article, the watch was released as a limited edition last year - and now they're releasing it as another limited edition. I mean, if you release it in *two* limited editions, that must mean it's twice as limited, right?!

Yes, doubly-limited, as it were :) And I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit. Do people still say that? Apologies to any Hublot fans...I guess they're popular for a reason.

Thank you Charlie for the palate-cleansing Cellini. Looks like a real classic, understated tank-style watch. And a great strap combo of course.

Cellini doesn't really get much run here on TWAT II. But one thing I've noticed is that Rolex seems to be pushing them more in the US, in terms of magazine ads, billboards, etc. And I'm sure that has everything to do with the Great Steel Sports Model Shortage™.

I find a lot of the Cellinis (past and present) quite attractive, but tend to lean toward other brands for a dress watch.

A friend of mine has a trust fund friend who I met a couple of times. He was an exceptionally nice guy and very generous. He took a group of us to a Heat game courtside and then to dinner at Nobu, where he picked up the bill and wouldnt even discuss me chipping in. On his wrist was a solid gold Hublot Big Bang on a bracelet that weighed what felt like 15 pounds. When he handed it to me, I was completely unprepared for how heavy it would be. I mean, it was hideous and grotesque, but there was something intriguing about it in the way that you cant look away from a car crash. I'm glad I got to see it in person as an experience.

What a great way of putting it! Certainly a pleasant sight after the worst (??) Hublot can throw at us...

Yeah, that pairing is pretty much ideal. Big thumbs up.

Awesome 5513 too, Greg...an old-school Sub is never the wrong choice.
