5 Desirable Brown Watches Launched in 2018

Postby Racer-X » May 12th 2018, 1:34pm

For the past 5 or 6 years, we've seen a massive array of blue watches launched on the market. All brands - really, all of them - had a blue version of an existing watch to show (with or without success though). So now that blue has become the new black, it is time for our dear watchmaking brands to come with something new. And if that's not entirely established yet, it seems that brown watches could well be the upcoming trend. Here are 5 of them, launched at Baselworld 2018.

Since many people weren't in lockstep with his beloved cheese box shit watch brand, The Cruise King ran off blowing snot bubbles, far away from his once-beloved forum. Here, eat this mudpie, Paw Paw. It tastes like a Hershey bar. Go ahead, dig in.

By the standards of the current generation of this watch (IMO, Rolex has killed the good looks Submariner and GMT-Master II the very moment they gave them the ceramic bezel and the "morbidly obese" so-called "Super" case), the new GMT-Master II most surprisingly isn't revolting. The new two-tone and Everose versions are palatable, that said.

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

Heavens to Conrad - who in the hell is Desirable Brown?

That was Capability Brown's sister, aka Ye Olde Towne Pumpe. Often, when pitching a landscape plan for Britain's gentry, who sometimes balked at his prices, Capability would bring in Desirable, who could suck a golf ball through a garden hose--assuming they had garden hoses back in Georgian times, which I don't think they did. But Desirable got the deal done, and the name on the line which is dotted.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
