I like it but not sure if I'd part with the Benjamin's so to speak.

The numerals on the dial ruin it for me. That plus the "Hoodwinkee" name on the back.

It's been painted to look like a triple calendar, but it's not - it's just a regular chrono. So that blows already. A gussied-up and frankly unnecessary remake of a watch that was never particularly popular and even now, isn't especially expensive. But at $6,500 and with on-message Hoodwinkee brand value, rich internet men with non-jobs will spunk all over it.

I have to ask. How do they earn all that money, yet still have time to browse all that shit and queue up to buy co-branded run-of-the-mill Omega chronos at more than double the price, hitting F5? I give it about 15-20 min a day at most, and that's too much.
