    Just look at it!
    March 16, 2014

    I’m a value shopper. I was looking for a watch that both looks nice and keeps time, but I was trying to stay under $100,000. I looked for weeks and was about to give up when I spotted this on Amazon! I got it for only $85,995! That left $14,005 in my budget for an extra strap and a pair of those tricky pins that hold the strap in place.
    Things I love about this watch:
    – The look. I love a good skull. I love a nice, scaly snake. Together, on a watch, on my arm?! Yeah, baby. I had to have it.
    – Design. I’ve not seen a combination of colors and design work like this since the great Elvis on Black Velvet painting era of the 1970s. You simply can’t find art work like this anywhere, unless you are willing to dig to the very bottom of the dentist office goody box.
    – Celebrity endorsement. When I saw this on 67 year old Sylvester Stallone, his hair freshly darkened and makeup perfect, I thought – “That’s me.” Then, in the same photo, I realized the grinning Stallone was clutching the erect shaft of his pen (matches watch, $5,000). Given I’d saved so much purchasing the watch, I was able to toss my Bic.
    – Features. Keeps time AND the date (always spot on!)
    – Durability. The crown “protects against water ingress”. You know if a company uses that many words for “waterproof”, its gotta be the best.
    – Origin. Made in Italy. Italy is a leader in manufacturing and technology – I buy all my computers, phones, etc from Italy.
    – Materials/Value. Note its made with genuine enamel. Enamel – its not just for bathtubs anymore. This watch will hold its value – even during a global uprising of the “have-nots” against the “haves” with their “let them eat cake” grasp of reality and utter inability to see the value of all that is good and decent in the world… But I digress.
    – Workmanship. PVD-coated back — the same coating found on finer snack food bags.
    – Automatic. That means it will save you money in the long run. I was paying $15 every two years replacing the battery on my old watch, that’s $150 every twenty years, or $15,000 every 200 years. Over time, this watch will pay for itself!
    – The ladies. Several have told me how “interesting” the watch is. One says it says a lot about me. Yesterday, one said, “You know, “classy” would be just “cly” without people like you!” Isn’t that nice?!

    Things I don’t like:
    – I get confused about what time it is mid-afternoon, unless it’s the third of the month.
    – No light. At first I was bummed, but as I’ve been sleeping with the light on so I can gaze at the watch during the night, it’s not been a problem.
    – Occasionally, I’ve raked the skin off my forehead wiping my brow with my wrist (not good for the gym!)

    I hope this review helps! Good luck!
