Superlative Self-Made Chronograph From Hajime Asaoka

by Joshua Munchow "The chronograph is making a comeback as the complication to create, which seems appropriate since it has always been an incredibly very difficult task to design and engineer a new chronograph movement.

A chronograph mechanism is extremely finicky and adjustment is a slow process. That is why many manufacturers tend to stay with tried and true movements instead of creating their own. It is much easier, not to mention cheaper, to use a movement or module that has been tried and tested for years in the real world than to stake huge amounts of capital on the development of something new."

The truly nice thing about integrated strap/bracelet watches..... it prevents someone from fucking them up with a gay NATO strap.

The author's name of this article reminds me of an amusing joke.

One day back in the 1980's President Ronald Reagan went into the men's room in the White House to drain the python. At the next urinal a big, sweaty bohunk named Joshua, the White House janitor, was taking a piss. Reagan looked down and saw that Joshua's dick was gigantic--a thick, veined whopper that looked like it needed two hands to handle it.

"Golly, Joshua," Reagan said. "How'd you get your virile member so gosh darn big?"

"Well, Mista Prez, it's like this," Joshua said. "Every night, before I go to bed, I whip it out and bang it on the bedpost three times, and after awhile, it grows to a big-ass sequoia!!"

Reagan finished peeing, thought Joshua was a douche, and went off to draw pictures of the Laffer Curve on some cocktail napkins.

Late that night, Reagan went up to go to bed. In the darkened bedroom, he could hear Nancy snoring like a busted chainsaw. Reagan thought of what Joshua said, and then thought, what the fuck, I'll try anything once--twice if it doesn't hurt. So he pulled his dick out of his jammies and cracked it against the bedpost three times.

Then Nancy woke up and said, "Is that you, Joshua?"
