For The Love Of Two-Tone Watches

For The Love Of Two-Tone Watches

Postby Racer-X » January 6th 2019, 4:08pm

"A discussion with fellow collectors that is bound to elicit interesting responses is two-tone watches. People tend to either love them or hate them.

The lovers consider them the perfect mix between a sporty looking watch and a dress watch. People who don’t care for them may think of them as a weak compromise at best.

The 1990s was the heyday for two-tone watches; they were available before and also after, but this period seems to have produced a significant amount of bicolor metal watches."

I never knew that 2-tone watches all cost a thousand million dollars.

A two-tone yellow gold and steel Omega Constellation from the 1990s

No shit? 1990s? Looks 2010s to me...and that's because it is:

I love the colourways of bicolor wartchs.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

The caption's slightly mismatched - in Monty Python's Upper Class Twit of the Year, it was "his father was a Cabinet Minister, and his mother won the Derby", and it pertained to Oliver St.John-Mollusc, played by Graham Chapman. The guy here is Terry Jones, who played Simon Zinc-Trumpet-Harris, an old Etonian married to a table lamp.
