It's too big, the hands are too short, and they were a shitty band during the 80s.

I'm not sure what's worse, the watch or Watchreport.

I didn't know if I should keep listening to that oaf's talking in order not to miss one stupid thing he says, and which I could laugh about, or should I just turn the bloody video off.

As to the watch, I don't like it. I can't really say that it's a Junghans clone, as that would be almost offensive to Junghans. Unnecessarily big (not knocking watch sizes as such, but the Bauhaus style is all about minimalist understatement...), with a tiny movement about as attractive as a baboon's arse, yet unfortunately visible through the display back. Not to mention the crass flieger-style lume plot at 12 o'clock, and the awfully pretentious name (both the brand and the watch).

Given that it's possible to get a Seiko SARB033 or the Cocktail Time (the older one, with the 6R15 movement- on the grey market, that'd be even cheaper than a brand new SARB033) at the same price point, I'd say that this one is not a good deal either. The screw-down crown (while it's a nice thing to have) alone doesn't cut it. So, it's a rubbish take on Bauhaus style, with hands out of proportion, a silly lume plot (at 12) design, a pretty fucking ugly and very, very pedestrian movement, priced at as much as a really decent Seeko. How about no?

Actually, it should be "yup." And use a period, goddamn it.

I may be starting to tire of the bauhaus style of watches. As much as I love them, the market seems to becoming saturated at this point.
