“Avoid buying watches that I personally don’t like and that others may not want to buy, after as we assume, you will automatically sell it”. Top shite from the internet there. Everyone’s a trader, eh? Also A Blog to Hodinkee has wanked itself to dust over plenty of unreadable crap in the past, so I can only assume that Aerial needed a bit of cash and it was a very, very slow news week.

REL never disappoints, when it comes to delivering an editorial that's an unbearable wankfest.

However, in all of that furious fapping of his, there actually were a few good points, which - by REL's standards - is rather surprising.

Gaudy, gem-set shite - it's never wrong to bash it.

Alleged historical significance - there, he actually advises not to buy what Hoodwinkee advises to buy. Hoodwinkee tends to wank to almost inexistent significance to build up the hype, so it's nice to see someone saying "it's a load of bollocks."

Watches with a lot of complications made by a dead brand - if we're talking of in-house movements or at least in-house modules, good luck with sourcing spare parts. Parts even for common generic movements tend to be hardly available - or even obsolete - these days.
