Farer Oxley GMT Review

Postby Racer-X » August 4th 2017, 3:56pm

by Sean Lorentzen "I have talked at length here on worn&wound about charm before, and how difficult it is to engineer into a timepiece. Today’s watch brings to mind a related, but not identical, concept—character in design. Too little individual character in a watch, and there’s nothing to separate it from a sea of similar pieces. Too much, and the watch runs the risk of becoming garish, difficult to wear or heavy-handed. The key is in moderation: knowing just how much idiosyncrasy to pump into a design to set your brand above the rest, while remaining timeless and usable in any situation."

Interestingly, this one doesn't totally fucking suck donkey balls. The seconds hand is goofy, though.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I like it. Too much $$$ though.

I think these are pretty reasonable. Don't like the colour schemes though

Save for the slightly fucked up choice of colours for the hands, it's not half bad.

I quite like the motley colorway provided by the under crystal appendages.
They make me feel alive!!!!
