When the original WOW died, it took Swiss Legend, Swiss Watch International, and Lucien Piccard with them. That Elini Barokas brand, too. But then again, in these incarnations, WOW didn't make anything at all.
A tale of six Seikos (two Kinetics, two autos, two Solar): FIVE of them have disintegrated, three while being stored. Please, explain to me that whole "bang for the buck" thing again.
