Tinder for Watches?

Tinder for Watches?

Postby Racer-X » December 1st 2018, 4:24am

"A new matchmaking service for watch geeks has hit the U.S. market. WatchAdvisor, a Swiss-based watch database company, is bringing WatchTinder to American watch enthusiasts through its new partnership with authorized watch e-tailer Troverie. The online database has been a source for collectors and watch clients to explore, select, and purchase authorized watches through selected European retailers, but now WatchAdvisor can connect its American perusers to watches available stateside through Troverie.

Like the dating app Tinder, WatchTinder makes a match based on some brief preferences resulting, in this case, in the perfect partner in time. Unlike the dating service, WatchTinder connects clients to their watch matches through a series of lifestyle questions. Watch hunters start by selecting their preferred types of watches according to categories ranging from sailing, motor sport, and diving to more out of the box options like gambling and even “erotic watches” (who knew?)."

Ughhh, Tinder... The only time I used it, I've been matched with a raving lunatic. She wouldn't stop talking of Starbucks, and mentioned she wouldn't date anyone not wearing skinny jeans (ones with no room for the plums). That I couldn't abide, and I haven't used the app since.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.

Silly inventors. You don't need a Tinder watch here in NYC to get laid. A Rolex works just fine.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

Thus 2018 will be remembered as the year one can blame a wristwatch for that mysterious case of the clap.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
