    My advice to Jeff: congratulations, but get this horror on eBay before anyone realises it’s yours.

    • Chaz

      😀

  • SuperStrapper

    Congrats Jeff. Wear it in good health and disregard any haters. Or cave their hating skulls in with the watch.

    • WINKS

      Jesus loves you:)

  • Simon_Hell

    The unshakeable consistency of only featuring really shitty looking watches in these giveaways is just stunning.

    • DanW94

      We’ve been over this before asshat. Here’s an excerpt from my reply to a strikingly similar comment you made in an earlier Giveaway section, “Previous giveaways just off the top of my head – Tutima, Damasko, Maurice Lacroix, Tissot, etc…” So yeah, there’s some nice looking watches.
      I know you can’t help being a total fuckbag but try harder, okay?

      • Moonraker

        Pumpa dem brakes, Danny. I’m here for you.

        • DanW94

          Edited – Thanks…..

          • Moonraker

            I just don’t want it to become an unwelcoming place for a$$hats and f#ckbags and sp%ge-t@rds. Then where would I go?

            And congrats to Jeff K, by the way.

          • DanW94

            You sir are the ABTW comments section voice of reason…..

          • Moonraker

            Sh*t! Then we’re all f#cked, sp%ge-t@rds and non-sp%ge-t@rds alike.

          • DanW94

            The fact that you percentage signed, hashtagged, exclamation point and ampersanded out the swear words only proves my point.

          • Moonraker

            Well I just swore in another thread and I’m about to curse out (non)Yojimbo, so nobody’s perfect.

      • Sheez Gagoo

        Lol. “Asshat”. Never heard this word before. Sounds like this swearword from Germany, which means “assviolin (Arschgeige)”.

        • 200 Fathoms

          A recent discovery for me was “douche canoe” (apparently like a douchebag, but worse). I don’t understand, but it’s good stuff.

          • Moonraker

            While a douchebag only has room for one douche, a douche canoe can easily accommodate three adult douches.

          • 200 Fathoms

            Yes! I thought so, but wasn’t sure.

          • JosephWelke

            Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

          • Moonraker

            I always get middle seat in the douche canoe.

        • DanW94

          Love the German language. Everything sounds so painful…..

          • Sheez Gagoo

            It`s the opposite of French, where every swearword sounds like a compliment.

          • Moonraker

            And Amharic, where nobody knows what’s goin’ on, even the guy writing it. 🙂

          • Mikita

            I also love it. Every word like you put a curse on someone 🙂

          • Sheez Gagoo

            Not for me. Due to the fact, that my native language is without any official grammar, we had German as official language in school. It was and still is forbidden to talk in our language in school. Except for the French or Italian part, even for the superweird rumantsch (I still can`t believe this is a language).So we grew up with German. This makes every other language sounds gay. But makes us open for German and Austrian television.

          • Mikita

            What’s your native language? So what language do you speak occasionally while with your relatives and friends?

          • Sheez Gagoo
          • Sheez Gagoo
          • Mikita

            Now I can’t see it in the original! Sounds so much cooler in Bärndütsch!

          • Sheez Gagoo

            The native language of Wookies!

          • Mikita

            Most probably! Actually, our own belarusian (Ruthenian language, Taraškievica today) is a half-dead language. Most of people speak Russian, while Belarusian native talk can be found mostly in the villages. It was also banned under Russian occupation of our part of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. They banned our language and our culture as well and later, in the Soviet era, they even had a plan “Russification of Belarusians”. Even the name of our language was renamed by Russians. However, there still some documents that suggest that Belarusian (Ruthenian) was the official language in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania – in 2 versions (Cyrillic and Latin alphabet), if you consider the authors and official documents such as Statutes of Lithuania from 1529, 1566 and 1588 (we had constitution before French LOL).

            Here is a famous poem – Dudka bia?aruskaja (Belarusian pipe):
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f9037cfffc6147df3efa8b4302c5bd1c286ef98b5207fa4c9afe0ac7bb55aa2e.jpg

            Today almost nobody knows this language existed and was an official language of one of the most powerful countries in Europe back then:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFTK7fvl9Cw

            Our cities are older than russian – Turov, Polotsk, Berasce – are all more than 1000 years old. And then Russia tried their best to wipe our history and self-awareness. Most of our people don’t know who they are already.

          • #The Deplorable Boogur T. Wang

            Eerily similar to the Taiwan Native situation. Language banned by the Han Chinese and Japanese invaders.
            I prefer to use it my self and as there is no written version it is becoming somewhat rare amongst the populace.

          • Mikita

            I wish our languages to survive and blossom in the future as once before.
            In my country, the problem is that people have been deprived of history and culture. Our heritage is divided into pieces between our neighbors, as a result, we have been left with an empty space.

          • Hawaiian, along with English, is an official language here in Hawaii. But try using it in a court of law, ha ha.

          • #The Deplorable Boogur T. Wang

            “Aloha nookie nookie!”

          • I think the longest thing I can say in Hawaiian is the state motto:

            Ua Mau ke Ea o ka Aina i ka Pono

            And that’s more than most people can say – including most Hawaiians. But there are some people and institutions which preserve the Hawaiian language – which was only a spoken language prior to European contact.

          • Wow Darth Vader in German sounds like Adolph Hitler in a Kung Fu movie. I met Jame Earl Jones once – nice man with that incredible voice.

          • Sheez Gagoo

            I remember when I worked in the french part another Swiss German and good friend came. We had a chat during a pause, like “How are you” etc. Everyone else thought we’re starting a fight.

          • Sheez Gagoo

            I love James E. Jones. Reminds me of Barry White! I met Tina Turner and Phil Collins, because they live here. I different cities. Mrs Turner was in the supermaket and Mr Collins in front of me in the train, when I had a first class ticket. But I didn’t talk to them, because they probably came here to have a quiet and unannoyed life. They wan’t to walk around without being on selfies or writing autographs all the time. Going to the supermarket and travelling by train like a normal citizen. So I behaved like the average Swiss and did ….nothing. The maximum of emotion a Swiss is able to show.

          • I met Mr. Jones at an event sponsored by the yellow pages (telephone directory) company with which my wife’s business advertised. So we got to have our photo taken with him. He was being paid for all of this nonsense and was a good sport. I asked him if he would say “Luke, I’m your father” and he replied “someone else pays me to say that”. So he was gracious even when declining and doing right by who was paying him that night. And I’m with you – when someone I’m with points out a celebrity I don’t put my head on a swivel or get up to go bother them. I treat them with the same indifference/normality that I’d want if I was them.

          • Sheez Gagoo

            I didn’t accuse you, If it came that way I’m sorry. There were two similar events here, were celebrities were paid to interact with us: Desmond Llewelyn aka Q was sponsored by Omega to give autographs and I get one. They planned a advertising campaign with him but he died a few weeks later so it was cancelled. The other one was the incredible David Hasselhoff (I don’t know if he lives here, hes always here) that came to a mall with K.I.T.T.!!! I made a picture sitting in the car with the Hoff! For me he will always be Michael Knight. Never watched Baywatch. The semi naked girls were not worth it the stupidity of the script, and Ialready had acces to porn because Europe. Again, I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, I would have been excited as you!

          • No problem, I did not take it that you were accusing me in the least. And we seem to be agreeing that when famous people are being paid to be famous it’s not the same as when they are off duty. Cheers.

      • Ariel Adams

        how dare you call someone an asshat! (one of my favorites btw) BANISH HIM MY PRETTIES!!!!

    • Pete Pete

      the abtw giveaways are the only way for some brands to get rid of at least on of their watches.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    This watch looks like the thing the plumber replaced on my bathtub.

  • Jim B

    Congrats

  • Ariel Adams

    what happens at Boynton Beach stays there

    I could tell you such stories about the young boys I’ve lured to their deaths upon the rocks wiggling my feminine charms

    because that’s right some nyc meshugge with a dream and a watch blog can lure boys to their death dressed up in a mermaid drag out fit

    let that be a lesson to you

    ~def not yojimbo

    • Ariel Adams

      Hello aBlogtoWatch community. I’d like to take this opportunity to share something with you all. The above commentor was, until a few days ago, going by the avatar name Yojimbo. A few of you might recognize that name, especially because we received a lot of complaints about statements he made. After reaching out to him a few times, including privately via e-mail, he didn’t stop making hostile and violent remarks (in some instances he advocated killing members of certain watch brands – which in some parts of the world is illegal in and of it self, so I am pretty sure we are legally required to remove it). Needed to remove his ability to comment further. Allow me to explain a bit more.

      At this time in the lifespan of aBlogtoWatch we are reaching a point when the community wants leadership, beyond the content on our articles, but also in comment discussions that have become increasingly popular after articles. I’m talking about the leadership to have productive discussions about the topic, as well as to ensure that everyone plays by basic rules of common social engagement. Internet-wide there has been a vacuum of community leadership, and in my opinion it has led to the incivility we see regularly covered in the news, as well as the “bully-tocracy” that seems to be how arguments are often decided.

      Yojimbo was a watch lover and community member, but also a bully and someone who had no interest in contributing to a welcoming environment. If you disagree with someone then do so in a polite and civil manner. We can laugh and add humor, but let’s keep it scholarly people. We are all here with positive intentions so there is no need to attack people simply because they don’t share your particular tastes or sensibilities on how to live their life. We come from all around the world, and despite being successful in our own communities and lives, have little actual useful advice for people living in totally foreign places who live by different rules.

      If you are a member of the aBlogtoWatch community and see someone behaving like a bully (“troll”) then speak up and give everyone else a voice so that the offender has an opportunity to self-correct after realizing their error. If someone insists on being immature and causing a raucous in someone else’s home then we will ask them to leave. Banning community members is a team decision, and if the community doesn’t want you here, then you probably don’t really like the community that much to begin with. Consider that I will be held personally liable to answer to any of you why we moderated, banned, or otherwise were forced to take our time and “discipline” a member of the community. We don’t take any pleasure in it and frankly wishes the community could somehow police itself.

      The comments above are from a smart and passionate yet deeply angered individual who is taking out his anger where he also enjoys his hobby. That’s sad, but we can’t let him ruin all our days simply because he is having a rough time in life. Watches are an escape for us because we enjoy the topic and while doing so don’t want other people’s life stress to come in and ruin our mood.

      Thank you all for being part of the community and also working with us during this time as we look for a new community leader. I am personally looking for someone to each day help facilitate relevant and useful conversations and offer a sense of leadership and support to the rest of the community. Looking for deputies (who aren’t Yojimbo)…

      • Moonraker

        So has Marius been banned or is he on a self-imposed kathoey vacation?

        • Mikita

          I’ll ban myself if Marius is banned.

          • Moonraker

            And what will you do if I get banned? Have a krambambula celebration?

          • Mikita

            Here we don’t have to search long for an excuse to get drunk.
            Happy event? Let’s get drunk. Woe? Let’s get twice as drunk.
            Therefore, imagine how damn drunk I’ll get if I lose one of three brother horsemen of the Watch Sentinel. When they find me fallen from the water tower somewhere near Hoiniki, doctors will say that they found some blood in my krambambula.

          • Moonraker

            That’s a compliment I think, so thank you. I put the ‘P’ in ‘WASP’.
            We wouldn’t want it to be WAS.

          • Mikita

            So you on the right with the winged heart tatoo? Berndt must be eating the chain and Dan trying to cut your guitar. And me not looking in the camera.

          • IG

            Who are these clowns?

          • Mikita

            Clowns of the Watch Sentinel

        • Sheez Gagoo

          Really, where`s Marius? And Ray? Should we worry?

          • Mikita

            They were sent as undercover agents to investigate the case of balcony-flying Briton and find the threads to the involved. However, with all their efforts, they failed to go unnoticed in Pattaya. As reported, one was driving a fiery red Pagani Huayra while throwing some weird books through the side window which appeared to be empty bottles of Le Voyage de Delamain. The other was singing eleventh song from the album Rascal Flatts, while leaving behind ashes, destruction, some tasty Haggis and stickers ClunkTM.

          • Moonraker

            I heard they were just in Geneva. They might be in France now.

          • Mikita
          • Moonraker

            Nah, don’t believe you. Looks like Zürich.

          • Mikita

            Oh, Zürich, nice bar. They are famous for the ping pong show?

          • Sheez Gagoo

            Ah, the Langstrasse/Zürich. The alpenpattaya.

          • Raymond was on holiday in the highlands – but he is back now (online at least).

      • Mikita

        I agree with you that Yojimbo crossed the line between jokes and open aggression. Even though I had some personal hassle with this guy, I really
        hoped that he just had some temporary problems, and that he would find
        the strength to gather his spirit and become a little bit more like a real lawyer LOL

        • Moonraker

          He was the one who claimed to have contacted Tiffany’s attorneys, advising them to sue Don Kylne instead of contacting Don Kylne to say, “Hey, maybe don’t call it ‘Tiffany Green’ on your website, just a heads up.”

          Now he probably didn’t get a hold of Tiffany’s attorneys, but that kind of attitude is not completely for show. I think it revealed his character to an extent and I had a hard time stomaching him from that point on.

          • Mikita

            Yes, I remember that story. Sometimes it seemed to me that the dude had open (real) sadistic inclinations… Maybe,
            as a lawyer, he had to pull out some real bastards 🙂 and now, in his
            opinion, he is seeking for retribution, but in our opinion – for simple violence 🙂

          • joe Shmoe

            i doubt he’s a lawyer, more likely just an online persona picked to intimidate his audience. on other sites he’s probably a gun-toting ex marine.

          • Ariel Adams

            I 100% did write them. They never wrote back and I doubt any action was taken. I’ll have a good cry you don’t take me as stomach-able

          • Moonraker

            Did you ask for a finder’s fee? Or was it out of the goodness of your heart?

          • Ariel Adams

            You may find this shocking but I am strongly motivated to oppose people who falsely describe their products, or who steal something that belongs to someone else. Both for the reason that it is theft.

            I know one guy whose masters degree that was paid for by Old Navy using his song in a commercial and eight others from two bands who had their shit stolen by Monday Night Football and the tv show Halt and Catch Fire respectively who had to go and fight for it.

          • Ariel Adams

            Ariel uses unpaid interns it appears, that is another form of theft. I personally find that fucking reprehensible to a degree that talking shit on the internet will never reach.

          • Ariel Adams

            You didn’t like that we banned your previous account because you seemed to feel like we are your enemy after asking you to speak in a more civil manner with members of the community who have repeatedly complained about you. We all need to play by the same rules here. Now you create an entirely different issue that you seem to have no personal experience in as a means to attempt to attack me? I’m allowing these comments to remain (for now) because I think the community needs to see the serious waste of time that this is, and so that they can be aware that despite all reasonable efforts, there are situations where diplomacy isn’t always an effective solution.

          • Ariel Adams

            Ariel. I am not ‘creating’ an issue. I’m pointing out something that you seem do be doing which is absolutely shameful. You’ve responded to my comment and not denied it which to me is confirmation that your positions are unpaid.

            Cast your stones buddy, but you are not without sin.

            Unpaid internships are illegal in my home province because of work that I and colleagues put in tirelessly. You continue to misrepresent what I wrote that’s fine that’s your prerogative it’s your sandbox. I’m simply reminding you that I can pee in it like the neighborhood cat at will.

            I don’t consider you my enemy, christ I barely think about this site when I’m not getting a notice that someone wrote something.

          • Ariel Adams

            Funny how people redirect aggression and bring up irrelevant things. I stand by our team 100% and have no responsibility to defend things that are not only not wrong, but that the person mentioning them has no personal experience with in any way. This entire discussion is based on you choosing not to abide by the simple community rules designed to prevent conversations such as this and others from wasting people’s time and removing focus from the topics at hand.

            Speaking of misrepresentation unethical conduct, do me a favor and stop using my name as part of your avatar. People already know my name and identity. Yet you not only hide behind anonymity, and you also won’t even speak to me in private if you actually have legitimate concerns about something that effects you. I’m quite busy and if I may ask you politely, please stop wasting my and the community’s time with all this.

          • Ariel Adams

            Ariel. Unpaid Internships are wage theft. I am not bringing that up to confuse issues. I’m bringing it up to say you’re doing something a lot worse than saying things that other perceive to be mean on the internet.

            User names are not theft. You do not own the name Ariel Adams chief, you sure you went to law school? http://arieladamsmft.com/ SUE HER!!!

            I only kept this name because it kept getting notices. I gave you a hint at some I was considering. Believe me I can get worse.

            I made it clear in another post that I NEVER got a private email from you because like many people when setting up accounts like this I just use a burner address. But please keep it going on chief.

          • Ariel Adams

            no I didn’t. my earlier response apparently got deleted. the TL:DR is that I have a problem with people who steal intellectual property.

          • Moonraker

            {…instead of contacting Don Kylne to say, “Hey, maybe don’t call it ‘Tiffany Green’ on your website, just a heads up.”}

            Why not that? You wanted to see them squashed, didn’t you?

          • Ariel Adams

            why not that? why should I contact someone clearly misappropriating something and point that out? That’s like walking up to a guy in a KKK shirt and saying “hey! you’re being a racist asshole”

            buhleee me they knows it.

            Also c’mon catch up, join the herd of people conflating issues and saying I’m doing the same thing with this user name. I was going to go with Ariel’s Hobo Foreskin or Dave Bredan’s Wetsock but thought people would focus on that.

            would you prefer Slymenstra Hymen?

          • Moonraker

            The Three Dads are a scary crew, I don’t blame you for not wanting to contact them. You might have gotten a mean email response. Or maybe they would have dropped the ‘Tiffany’ wording and apologized. Who knows? What I do know is that it would have been more satisfying for you if they were sued into bankruptcy (for something you just know they did deliberately), but you can’t win ’em all.

            Honest question: if Don Kylne made a stupid yet totally naïve mistake by using the word ‘Tiffany’, and they agreed to get rid of all the ‘Tiffany’ references, and Tiffany themselves were OK with that, would you be OK with that? You seem like less of a slap on the wrist guy and more of a cut their arm off guy.

          • How about people who steal the identities (name in this case) of another person? And impersonation is clearly a violation of ABTW comment policy. You say you are a lawyer? OK, scan and post a copy of your law license, bar exam, whatever they have in Canada. No redaction – be a man and have your name be known.

          • Ariel Adams

            I think it’s VERY clear that I am not Ariel Adams both with a dream and a watch blog.

            I thought the name paired nicely with the image

            http://arieladamsmft.com/ get the lynch mob together and GET HER!

            I have zero interest in ‘proving’ who I am to you Mark. Zilch. I gave away hints to how to find me awhile back to anyone who hated me including current city and the owner of a watch shop who I’ve met more than once that you featured.

            Haven’t seen him since then though for reasons of him selling shit reborn watches like Zodiac and me having better things to do. But yeah just what I need holier than though dweebs trying to shame me online.

          • I don’t need to shame you. You do that all by yourself.

          • Moonraker

            You mean Jus_ad_bellum from London, Ontario? Who said
            (to Mark Carson, no less):

            “And you despite you engaging in the foregoing, I have not been “upset” or gone ad hominem on you. It would appear you want to paint me as a an anti-pollyanna now simply for responding to what you’ve written. I don’t troll on these or any other forums and I certainly haven’t here.”

            I particularly liked that last sentence of yours. Oh how times have changed, eh? And aren’t you being a little holier-than-thou and trying to shame Ariel Adams online? That is your goal, right? I have no way of knowing if what you’re accusing Ariel of is accurate, but why don’t you contact him man-to-man (or lawyer-to-lawyer) instead of running around claiming that he never sent emails just because you don’t check your secondary email account? Take it up with Ariel directly. If you’d like to take down ABTW, you can certainly give it a shot, but why you gotta ruin it for the rest of us in the meantime?

          • joe Shmoe

            he came across as a real turd that probably had no friends. possibly still a virgin as well. unless streetwalkers count.

        • Sheez Gagoo

          I remember that. I had troubles with the toad. But due to the fact, that comments are not moderated and Americans have a different interpretation of free speech I thought everybody cares himself about trolls. Like in the wild west and in Trumps way: If someone attacks you, you fight back a billion times worse than you`ve been attacked.

        • Ariel Adams

          you’re just pissed I told you off

          and I remain, a real lawyer thanks

        Never like to see people go but sometimes it’s a necessary evil I guess. Just like in real life it only takes one opinionated and aggressive person to dominate every conversation and crush discourse which gives newcomers a bad impression.

        This community is better off without certain members and sometimes someone has to make the decision to cut someone out (who remembers skeletor?).

        Not sure I agree with the whole leadership thing though. Sure there are certain voices that garner more of a following than others but all in all I think it’s best to have a more open commenting system where everyone has an equal standing.

        • Mikita

          Skeletor = Dinkee, H.O.

          • MEddie90

            Really? Come to think it does’nt surprise me. Dinkee appeared arround the time skelly was banned so makes sense. At least Dinkee can be occasionally amusing (it’s rare but I have chuckled at his comments before) and isn’t as abusive or as spammy as his previous incarnation.

            There are a few trolls on abtw who constantly shitpost and derail conversations but most of the comment section seems decent enough imho.

          • Moonraker

            Dinkee, H.O. = Marius

          • Mikita

            Marius = Ariel?

          • Moonraker

            Carol Besler = Katarina Brueggler

          • Hey – I know Carol and she is a nice lady (and a professional writer) and she has nothing to do with the making of over-priced mix and match watches. I know you were just trying to be humorous.

          • Moonraker

            operative word = “trying” 🙂

          • Hey, we all swing and sometimes miss. Cheers.

          • Ariel Adams

            I most certainly am not

          • Ariel Adams

            100% thought the same

          • Moonraker

            TrevorXM = Dinkee, H.O. (not joking; a theory but definitely not joking)

          • Mikita

            Maybe I’m among the lucky guys who got blocked by TrevorXM 🙂 But I was really surprised he blocked Ray

          • Moonraker

            Dinkee spars with Ray all the time. Trevor is Dinkee. And look at the other guys Trevor’s hinted at blocking: Phil, SuperStrapper…

          • Mikita

            Now you’ve painted it, and it dawned on me. It may well be true, I can see connected behavior of Dinkee and TrevorXM. But what about Skeletor? This emploi was the most agressive one, but I think the other 2 emploi (Trevor and Dinkee) are passive agressive as well.
            Hint: Dinkee hates cheap Seiko watches such as 007, and I think Trevor does as well. Try to talk about Seiko to any of them and they usually heat up in a similar way. This once again confirms your theory.

          • Moonraker

            I’ll leave the Skeletor thing to you because that was largely before my time here, I only caught the very tail-end of that. But I’ll give you two more wrinkles: 1.) Trevor says he is an artist. Look at the avatars. Now they are totally different in style, but how many of us could draw Ben Clymer? Unless that drawing is from some other source that I’m unaware of. 2.) Look at their screennames. Even the structure is similar. Dinkee, H.O. TrevorXM same guy
            Apologies if I’m wrong, of course

          • Mikita

            Nicely done, Sherlock! Actually, you are right – Dinkee showed some drawing skills before, not talking about his avatar. And Trevor is surprisingly (not) an artist as well 🙂 Enough points to make up a puzzle, in my opinion.

          • Moonraker

            Now we tell Berndt and he repeats it ala Kravitz Design, Kravitz Design 🙂

          • Mikita

            This case will go down in history as Bernie Rage aka Berndt-Kravitz syndrome 🙂

          • Moonraker

            The answer to the second thing is always yes.

          • Mikita

            This is one sentence: “Would reviewer personally wear it yes.”

          • Moonraker

            Best characteristic of watch: Well, if I had to pick one thing, I’d say everything.
            Worst characteristic of watch: Well, if I had to pick one thing, I’d say it should probably cost more.

            Pretty in line with the wide range of voting options:

            Tell your wife you read it for the car articles, the pen articles, the cigar articles, and the Berluti articles.

          • Mikita

            Sweety, why do you say I got stuck on watches? Look: cars, pens, psychology, shoes, electronics, and almost no watches.

          • Moonraker

            Baby, I’m just checking out this site for Apple Watch straps and this one guy’s cool sneakers and some manscaping tips for hairy arms.

          • MEddie90

            I’ve only ever had one conversation with Trevor over 2 years back and it involved me attempting to explain to him how a Lange 24hr / day night indicator worked and why a leap year indicator was a useful addition to a perpetual calendar.

        Kitten, I’m not angry. I meditate daily. If you ever thought there was a single true THREAT issued by my account then I would suggest you are in fact a pearl clutching queen.

      • Ariel Adams

        I would suspect that you have a problem with when I have taken time to point out that some of your features are utter shit. But maybe I’m just full of myself.

      • unpaid internships are wagethe

        speak more about your air quote LEADERSHIP bud

      • Ariel Adams

        oh you don’t like being told unpaid internships are a crime, that’s cute

        • Ariel Adams

          In exchange for the community that we’ve built… around content we invest in and don’t charge the audience anything for… you decide to focus on criticizing a program we have to discover, train, and educate possible new team members? First of all, you actually don’t seem to know anything about our internship program, second you seem to assume that we don’t dedicate a lot of time and training to interns. We would never assume to create a program where the value is all one-sided. You’ve clearly never been through our program so you can be forgiven not to understand its details, but to use it as part of your character attack on myself and the business demonstrates to me that you need to pause your participation here and consider more constructive ways of spending your free time. Why invite so much negativity in to your life? And for what outcome? Am I or the aBlogtoWatch community really your enemies?

          • Ariel Adams

            You have made zero denial that the positions are unpaid. Christ when the UN was doing it in my youth, they at least paid per diems.

            No I haven’t been through ‘your program’. Sorry I’m gainfully employed in the profession that is said to have certain ideals which you seem to have abandoned. Unpaid internships on the whole, I have studied the issue for thousands of hours, I’d consider myself an expert.

            If you are doing that, which I now really believe you are, what you are doing is evil and I would have been calling you out for this regardless of whether you banned the other account or not. (When setting up this account, I was really leaning towards a reference to foreskin or a damp sock but I wasn’t drunk enough to let that whim take hold)

            I think it’s silly that you’re presenting me as someone who views you as my enemy, you give yourself way too much credit buddy. I speak truth, you don’t like my sense of humor I get it. *shrugs shoulders*

        He’s a lawyer, enough said.

    • Moonraker

      Ariel may have horrible, I mean questionable, taste in watches (my opinion), but you’re a horrible person (fact). And surprise surprise, you claim to be a lawyer. It is a little hard to believe you can hold that kinda job acting like an 8-year-old. TEC-9s and foreskins?? So hilarious, man. Did you study at The Second City? And then running around like you’re the one being wronged? OK, that’s kind of absurdly funny. Now grow up and drop this shit or leave for good because you’re ruining it for the rest of us! Either your parents failed you or you’ve failed them (and continue to do so), but something is definitely wrong with you, man. Take a sick day and practice being a decent human being for once in your life.

    • SuperStrapper

      Dude, why?

      • Ariel Adams

        meshugge is not an insult, it’s just saying he’s a crazy boy with a dream about watches dork

  • 200 Fathoms

    Is there just a gap under the chapter ring where the the raised numbers go underneath?

    • Moonraker

      I think the 1 went a little farther in than the 2.

      • 200 Fathoms

        Holy crap! That’s awful.

      I just realised – we don’t always need an article to have a good and lively talk here 🙂

    • Moonraker

      This thread really should have been about Jeff K and his new watch. Way to go, Yojimbo.

  • Jeff Kolodny

    I didn’t realize there were so many posts about my win. I just got back from a family vacation and thought I would check out my favorite watch website. Now that I see all these posts I’ll have to read them. Seriously I just got back 2 hours ago. When I got the e-mail that I won I was very excited. I received a very nice e-mail form SISU with their website included. When I checked out their website I saw the BLACK CARBURETOR Q2. I actually liked this model much better and always wanted a all black watch. I received it the day before I left so I really never got the wear it for any amount of time. I will say It’s a big watch. Before receiving this one the largest watch I have in my collection is 45mm. This seems big and chunky but I am happy to add this to my collection. I will photograph my new addition and send in my review. Right now I’m just buried with work so I’ll need some time to get to this.
    I just looked (Glanced) over the stupid posts below. Really, nothing better to do than talk crap online. I’ll write my review and take some photos in the next week or 2. Thanks to everyone who congratulated me.
    Jeff K

    • Ariel Adams

      Jeff, thanks for chiming in and sharing the news. Also for helping keep it sane around here 🙂 We need more guys like you speaking up.
