The Good(article), The Bad(blog)& The Ugly (watches)

Postby MKTheVintageBloke » June 23rd 2018, 6:52am

It's no secret, I don't like Fratello. Selling out their mailing list, doing a limited edition with Omega, and whoring out to whoever pays... But just this one time, it looks like even they couldn't resist going medieval on Peter Speake-Marin's Stoic Watches shite. No matter if these watches are just as bad as possible, or did Stoic forget to pay for an ad, the rant is enjoyable.

Certainly enjoyable; a fine rant is a fine rant, after all. However, it says something when a site that spreads it's asscheeks to whomever has a check that will clear the bank gets all medieval on a bullshit brand.

An absolutely fine rant and the subject wartches deserve it.

I could swear they have taken a page from MK’s writing?

Yeah, looks like it was too much even for them.

While that's unlikely, still I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Stockton is friends with a guy called Fred, and Fred either of his own accord or in Stockton's name has tried to chew me out on WUS for my criticism of Stockton's hype-encouraging watch market reports. Dunno if it was just Fred trying to defend his buddy, or his buddy has failed to grow a pair, and called upon a minuteman. I replied with a surprisingly F-bomb-free version of "fuck off, I will turn into fucking crumpets whatever article I dislike, as I please, whenever I so please, and regardless of whoever wrote it."

Understandably - you have a Speake-Marin, if I recall correctly. I may be somewhat indifferent about the design of Speake-Marin watches, but I would never doubt their quality - it's sad to see the man behind extraordinarily well-made watches try to use his name to sell shit such as Stoic.
