With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I actually like DW for the way it puts the shits up the snobbier form of WIS. Hey, at least they’re not fucking FitBits.

I actually don't hate all that many brands. YouTube "watch shows"? That's another fucking story. This new Fauntleroy is to actual watch experts what bicycles are to fish. Anybody with a fucking web cam.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

True. Then again, I might check out the fellow’s other videos - obviously there’ll be nothing in them that I don’t already know, and possibly something to give me a good laugh. I mean, this short video wasn’t particularly infuriating, or at least I can’t hate it as much as I loathe David Niven’s retarded version with his ”crest” on signet rings and coffee mugs, or the four-eyed, pretentious, ghey orangutan from T&H.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.

You got that right. That T&H stuff is the biggest rip-off I've ever seen - check out their webpage and see what they're asking for vintage watches in sometimes seedy states of disrepair. They're just like Evine - hoping to capture an audience that doesn't know the first thing about watches.
