There is such a thing as good microbrand watches. It's a rare thing, but it exists. Was there any good watch sold on the telly, ever?

I will call it a draw. I see no difference in Aragon, say, and Lew & Fucking Huey. And there are microbrands that make Invicta look like Vacheron Constantin.

Interestingly, way back around 2007 or so, Urine live (then called ShopNBC) had some decent offerings, although many were one or two time shots, like Seiko and Orient. Casio started showing on Urine some years ago, and still do; however, I'm sure their sales on a third rate home shopping network are pretty marginal. Philip Watch, Sector, and Chase Durer all showed pretty often on Shop as well back in the earlies.

Pray tell, T; what are your thoughts on Lew & Huey?

As for your request, there's no way you're going to get me to spout off about choad-gobbling Lew and "Swallowin'" Huey again no matter how bad you try to goad me. No way. There's lot to admire about a company that sells 100 dollar watches for 850 bucks, those miserable scum-lappin' bags of puke (rest in peace, Kathleen Freeman).

When I first started "lookin' at" ShopNBC, they used to offer the brands conj talked about, as well as early SWI that would sell not only those decent autos they once had under their brand, but also gray market Bulova Accutron, Oris, and other such things at what I remember were eye-popping low prices, and there were, indeed, some deals to be had. Then Lalo's taint (as well as his taint, it's been rumored) started spreading, and now Evine is a worse schlock show than ever, featuring Eyal (now starring in Christopher Robin, I've heard) and his FH-besmirched trash, current Croton which looks like exactly like the type of watches you'd win for popping a balloon at the carnival, and the occasional visit by Master Wing, he of the garish day-glo colors, 60mm case sizes, and suits so skinny, he probably bought them from the G.I. Joe formal wear department at Used To Be Toys R Us.

I've got a couple of NFW watches that I really like. Also have a orange dial tungsten Swiss Legend quartz that I've worn a lot and still looks like it just came out of the box. All were bought thru Slop TV.
