PREVIEW: DIEWALD SEAHORSE

Postby koimaster » September 2nd 2017, 6:01pm

The Seahorse's case is a familiar barrel shape in brushed stainless steel. It is 43mm wide and stubby, integrated lugs keep overall length to 48mm. This should make for a large watch that can still be worn by those of us with smaller wrists. Inside, is a 24 jewel, 21.6k bph, Seiko NH35 automatic, a reliable movement well known to microbrand aficionados. It has a quiet bi-directional rotor, a power reserve of over 40 hours, hacking and hand winding capabilities, and is equipped with Seiko's Diashock protection.

For once, I will forgo my usual mocking stance on KS and I know this won't read like something I'd write, but...

I've seen a lot worse. Not a bad look, not goofy at all, kinda sleek, sapphire, price seems reasonable, decent movement. Would I buy one of these? No need. Would I point and laugh at one of these Seahorses as if it was a Lew & Huey? Not this time.

It just sucks. Ravenously! As if it were just starving to suck; pining away, almost to nil -- nil, dammit!! -- just so it can roundly suck, suck like it MEANS it; suck like there's no tomorrow! Suck like a 12-point buck! Suck like the by-God RED CHINESE!! It even sucks at fucking SUCKING! If it were in India, it'd be the Suck Mahal; if it were in Paris, it'd be on the Sucks Elyssess! If it were in NYC, it would be on Suckhattan Island! It'd be Lombard Street in Suck Francisco! It sucks even more than the Smell-A Chargers in their sucky little soccer pitch! It sucks more than the NFL, which so ultimately and routinely sucks that their fans have unexplained hickies all over them every single fucking game day...WHY? BECAUSE IT SUCKS, THAT'S WHY, YOU RAT-BASTARD, TEAM-POACHING BUNCH OF SMELL-A LIMO LIBS!! YOU ALL SUCK!!!

As to the watch, well, let's just say that, comparatively speaking in a sort of chancre's versus lesions sort of way, in a Hep A versus B versus C kind of comparative testing, it sux like an Electrolux. THAT IS ALL.

It's always good to see Mort in a good temper.

The watch? Not so bad; It only makes me want to hammer a Cabriole table leg three-quarters of the way up my fucking ass.
