Goodspeed Petrol

Postby koimaster » October 24th 2018, 8:55am

I reached out to Goodspeed Watches as soon as I saw their Instagram page. They hadn't launched yet, but from the pictures of their first model, the Petrol, I knew I wanted to review it. The watch has the vintage racing look I love, a Seiko VK64 MechaQuartz inside, and an affordable price tag. Was it really as good as it looked on my iPhone's screen? They shipped me a prototype so I could see for myself.

I am a sucker for this style watch. I just wish it wasn't a kickstarter project.

I don't like rally straps, but the Heueresqe vintage appearance is nice looking. I'd like to see the blue one. Hard to resist for a buck-and-a-half'ish on the early-bird special.

Are we looking at the same thing? Because all I'm seeing is a Chinese catalogue watch with a throwback dial. While it doesn't exactly make me want to vomit my fucking guts out, it's certain so bland, from a company with no track record, with a meh movement, that we're close to Cabriole territory.

And, the hands are too short.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Reminds me in a way of this watch I had at one time.

As I recall, I think I had some unkind things to say about that one, too.

Fix. I want watches I can fix.
Proof that quartz is still not only viable, but sometimes, something to covet: Grand Seiko.
