"Oh, man. Where 'da coffee, bro?" Made me smile. A watch that understands me.

Borealis did well with this homage, Mort. Mort did well with this intro.

Looks great and for whatever reason I really dig the bigger crown here.

And of course that bezel is the tits.

Nice addition to the collection, sir.

Look forward to the full blown review.

hommage au pain blanc? Sirène? «fisch sammich?»

Je suis vraiment désolé, Foggy, mais je suis en perte ici. Je suis généralement très bien avec mon français, mais pas cette fois, mon ami ...

Peut-être n'aurais-je pas pris cette «pillule stupide» ce matin, non?

Je suis bien sûr certain que je, linguiste français je prétends être, sera complètement embarrassé lorsque vous me dites ce que j'ai manqué ici.


Je suis irrémédiablement embarrassé, cher homme de brouillard ...! :oops:

Thank you all for your very nice comments, gents. They mean a lot me, especially now, when I seem to be losing my edge, not unlike that 'moke in 'top gun,' who had to have 'ol maverick show him how to land...jeebus, what a completely stupid fucking movie...'top gun' is the Invicta of movies; it's chock-full of more out-and-out lies and mistruths, and sheer fucking stupidities than any other movie ever fucking MADE, dammit!!

Anyway, as Foggy was trying to point out above, blanc pain is French for "white bread," and I believe he was also considering what a marvelous fisch sammitch that mermaid would make, and sew fourth...

But I, mostly-fluent in Fran-SWAH! had to have that 'splained to me...I am shamed...I should be flogged...I should be purged...Foggileh will never forgive me...I should be flogged...and so on...and now, Lady Gaga will never sit on my face, not after this d-buckle dreadfuckle debacle (fuck!)...oh, well, I guess it's for the better, as no one has fun when they're struck down with oral-fecal diseases...excepting maybe conjurer, who's too fucking old to get sick from something like that...

That's a nice looking fucking watch, Mort. You done good. Now, get to work on the review, goddamn it; we want facts and pics and impressions, and we want 'em goddamn fast, you savvy?
