He is the former English singer of the rock band Catherine Wheel, who has breathed new life with his company Singer Vehicle Design for eight years in Los Angeles old Porsche 911ern.

That's the gheyist thing I've ever seen, and I once saw Nathan Lane sucking another guy's dick.

Unfortunate - and an insult to the last of the real 911s. Ferry and Butzi are rolling in their graves.

I believe I have shared my thoughts about the watch before, but... It may well be, that I'm in the minority by not as much liking the watch, as not disliking it. The AgenGraphe is probably one of the most amazing chronograph movements in the last few years, unique in just about every way. What I really dislike, is the price- for one, it's obnoxious in how high it is for a watch made - or at least branded - by a car company, which never made a single watch. Another thing is, that it's perspectives of resale value are uncertain.

Another thing is that a car company, which has the whole movement outsourced, and no experience in watchmaking (I don't know if they have the facilities to service or repair it, either), is not really a safe option when it comes to servicing or repairs. If they don't manage to stay in the watch business, who will carry out the repair work on a movement, for which any spare parts will likely be obsolete?

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
