Hands-On Hamilton Intra-Matic 68

Hands-On Hamilton Intra-Matic 68

Postby Racer-X » March 25th 2017, 10:51am

by Arthur Touchot "This is the best new Hamilton watch of the year, hands-down. It's not even close, really. A reverse panda dial chronograph was always going to be a fan favorite, and this one has a well-balanced layout with just enough of its own personality that it stands out from similar chronographs. All of that makes for a very interesting watch."

I tried the reverse panda once, but I threw my back out.

A bit off-topic, but I must vent: So I click the link to go to Hodinkee, and there's a "LIVE" button to go to, I guess, constant coverage of the staff while it's at Baselworld. So I click that link and what's the first thing I see? Still photos of the pizza they're having for lunch.

It's unreal - from Anal Adams to these guys, it's all about their experience, every meaningless bit of it, rather than focusing on the meat and potatos - the watches. These supposed "watch journalists" act like a bunch a fifth graders on their first field trip. Site after site, it's people talking about travel times and walking and just fucking STFU and show me a fucking watch, Fauntleroy.

Don't forget they're hipsters, and hipsters are known for taking photos of their food instead of eating it.

Besides, most of them aren't real journalists- mostly PR and marketing guys turned bloggers.

Hodinkee, although they're bunch of donkeys, pseudo-experts and absolutely sordid fucking fleecers, still have the most decent* coverage of Baselworld, out of the most popular sites. IMO, ABTW takes the second place. Monochrome and Fratello (if you're reading this, Fratellopillocks, I hope that for selling my email address to Lebois you will experience balance staff pivot issues and broken mainsprings forever and a day longer) are taking the piss - their "coverage" is just not there at all.


*most decent- read: the best of ghastly "journalism", which means it's still fucking ghastly.

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