Ikepod Duopod And Chronopod

Postby Racer-X » September 18th 2018, 4:54pm

"I'll just come right out and say it. I really did not want to like these watches. I'm something of a purist by nature and the idea of reviving the Ikepod brand without Marc Newson just seemed wrong to me. It's like if Genesis decided to go on a reunion tour without Phil Collins...or something. However, it's sometimes best for us to set our more knee-jerk impulses aside, even if reluctantly. I can whine all I want about Ikepod no longer involving Marc Newson, but those days are in the rearview mirror and I can either take the new watches on their own merits or let them pass my unnoticed. I decided to the do the former and I'm thankful that I did. Looking at them objectively, Ikepod's two new models are excellent design-driven quartz watches made to an exceptional standard and offered at a fair and affordable price."

Bleh. Boring and ghey. Marc Newson? Isn't that the sod who designed that ridiculous hour glass for Hoodwinkee? If so, I take that back. Not just ghey. It's ghey, ghey, and ghey threescore.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.

Ikepod. I never even knew they ever existed and died. And now they have been revived. And who's that guy again? Uh, next topic, please.

Uck.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

Fuck! I can't believe I even fucking clicked on that fucking link. My fucking eyes burned right out of my skull. These Decupod-La-la watches make me want to fucking puke. I doubt I've ever seen anything as fucking ghey as this shit, and I once watched Raymond Burr eating a fucking Slim-Jim. There is literally no Cabriole table leg big enough to hammer up my fucking ass to express my fucking foggy-like ennui over this fucking shit. These are superb wartchs for hipster cocksuckers--nothing there; no interesting movement, no interesting fucking design, no fucking shit at all. Oh! I can imagine some millennial screaming, Oh! These watches are so interesting!! I can wear one whilst sipping a decoupage latte in my skinny jeans! I could Instagram the shit out of these, and all my Instagram pals will be shitting into their skinny jeans and porkpie fucking hats! Fuck that shit, man. These are complete, utter shit. I'd rather put my sister into an Akron whorehouse to get fucked in the ass by a bunch of Bandido bikers than put one of these on my brother's fucking wrist. This wartchs make me spew my fucking guts out. The wartche is ghey, the shape is fucking ghey, and the motherfucking colourways are fucking ghey. I'd rather ram a fucking red-hot branding iron up my fucking ass than look at this cocksucking shit again. The only people who'd wear this fucking shit are limp-wristed homos and Public School bois from the U fucking K who have been so fucking rectally traumatized that they wouldn't fucking know the goddamn difference. I wouldn't strap one of these pieces of motherfucking shit onto the wrist of my worst fucking enemies just before shoving the bastards head-first into a fucking blast furnace.

I really don't care for these watches.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Ikepod? Duopod? Chronopod? Apparently designed either by cephalopods or arthropods.
