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

The most severe is the high impact hammer test. This shock testing equipment submits the watch to an impact equivalent to 6,000 G - Hundreds of times more than a car crash test. Yet the watch has to remain unharmed and fully functional afterwards

Old enough to know a thing or two about a thing or two.

Just looked at the chrono with a display back - got to love the rather perfunctory finishing on the rotor, and the fact that no part of the movement except the rotor has any finishing on it. 2400 bucks for that crock of shit...Yikes.

Whew, for a second there I thought Kodak or Xerox had diversified.

I wish the company all the best but I'm waiting until I can pick one up at TJ's for $179 because at MSRP list, they aren't going to sell very many.

As a former upstate New Yorker, after looking at the watch, I think I can pretty much safely surmise that Rochester's Ocean Crawler might be to dive watches (blow up a photo and check out that pristine dial work) what Rochester's Genesee Cream Ale is to beer. Ghahh...that stuff used to run through me like Seabiscuit.

Since it is "New York's First Luxury Watch Company" I can see some dumb fuck tourist from Guam buying one of these as the ultimate souvenir.
