The person who came up with the price of $178K was likely released from the psychiatric ward all too early.

The watch is unbelievably ghey.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.

Makes you wonder what goes through the mind of somebody prepared to drop that sort of coinage on a Seiko... albeit, a nice well put together on but a Seiko non the less.

It's a model of elegant simplicity compared to the Hublot Ferrari MP-05.

Something about partnering with an auto maker just puts those guys over the edge. The Breitling Bentley isn't exactly discreet either.

Ball had a BMW series that didn't suck. I may snag one now that I've got a ratty old Z4 in the driveway. At least it would be cheaper than the car - and the car was plenty cheap.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
