A fitting thread title for a "Whorerizon" WarTch.

I don't think I've seen a dial designed like that before. I like it a lot.
Is it safe?

Sometimes, Foggy, the love of words and puns can be, well, taken to an extent where even the best-natured escort ladies and call girls might take offense to a response such as the one you posted above. In fact, I think I'm safe in saying that, much like a very productive steroid lab, that awful pun would definitely make a whore moan... 8-)

It's a design that Wing came up with about a dozen or so years ago, and he has continued producing it under the Aragon name, and still with the original Miyota movement and 42mm case size, which pleases me a good deal. However, he also makes it in a thyroidal 50mm version, as well, which means that Wing's still listening to someone who sez that that's what "the WORLD wants!" Jeebus cripes... :???:

A nice review, you damned old goat. I got one of the old Horizons for Mrs. C, and she likes it a lot.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

The dead man's got some cool watches. I'd rock that! Geez, what a deal too.

Love looking at my watch movements. Looks like this partial see through design actually gives that benefit while still allowing the time to be easily read. Smart.

Thanks, Loaf! It's also very comfortable, even in its new configuration, which is on a bracelet. They also have several choices for beautifully colored MOP dials, two of which (green & brown) I HAD to get (they were only $89.98 each, which for me was a nobe rainer...). From my standpoint, Wing seems to be edging back into the styles and sizes that gave him so much early success. I hope he sticks with it... 8-)

Honestly, when I read first read the title of this thread I thought Mort was going to share an anecdote about a Thailand sexcapade from his youth. Glad it was about a watch instead!

Arty, Arty, Arty...I thought I'd raised you better than that! You're turning into a dirty, um, young man, fercornsake! :shock: (Besides, if I'd been talking about Thailand, the title would've been, "Twenty Bucks Worth of Happiness." :???: )
