Hands-On: The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club

Postby Racer-X » June 12th 2017, 5:00pm

by Stephen Pulvirent "The United States is currently the largest watch market in the world, and the king of that market is the three-hand sports watch with a date window. Whether that's your favorite kind of watch or not (and, yes, I know how many of you feel about the date window), talk to any retailer or brand rep and you're going to get the same answer: to compete for customers and sales, you've got to have a strong sports watch."

Perfect "sports watch' for those who buy jeans with the already ripped look.

Cute.
In the space of one hour is Babylon the Great thrown down. Not a stone remained standing upon another and the reek of her burning did poison all the earth and the smoke thereof did blot out the sun so that noon-day did appear as midnight. Alas Babylon!

Overheard at the Clifton Club-

"Nice watch, sport". "Thanks, it's a BM, sport; more fillit minnyawn, sport?" Why that's very sporting of you, don't mind if I do".

Sentences don't get gheyer than this. Oh, I suppose "I met my old friend at the bar, and after a few drinks, he sucked my dick and I buggered him up the ass." might be somewhat gheyer, but not much.
