Ok, I'll admit I almost missed this one, but fans of unique modern design watches should definitely check out the Bólido before the campaign ends this week. The watch features a futuristic, 43mm, lugless monocoque case with a 12 o'clock crown position, and an asymmetric shape that tilts the dial towards the viewer. Inside, beats a regulated and decorated Swiss ST-1 automatic movement. I love the clean, modern graphics of the dial and the fact that they did not shy away from color, offering bright yellow, blood red, and a warm gray in addition to the usual black or white. The Bólido is water resistant to 100M and comes on a rubber strap with a flip-lock clasp. You can still get one for CHF 450 (about $465 USD), but you'd better act fast as the campaign ends Saturday, July 15.

The Bolido looks like a fucking canteen.

Why does TC-9 have that bezel on a dive watch?

The Time Bum is a fucking half-wit. To steal from Full Metal Jacket, the best part of that sleazy, clueless fuckstick ran down the crack of his Mama's ass.
