Go back and read some of the comments 8) ....his lack of knowledge of Orient pretty much says his level of collecting.

Sorry, I can't stand Teddy. Neither can Phluff. Everything that's wrong with watch media rolled up into one duplicitous shill - he only got into all this to start a "retail brand." You can't review watches if you're selling them - he refers to what he does as "advertorials." There's no such thing. That's a conflict of interest, right out there in the open. It's like owning a baseball team and being a sportswriter - you can't do both. Just another weasel with a love of Brylcreem.

Again, each to their own, but keep these YouTube con artists away from me.

Go to know, thanks T...You're right, A definite conflict.I usually only watch these if they are posted here or at Lords, or if I'm researching something specific.

Too bad Phluff doesn't make any 8)

I don’t normally post reviews due to the fact that most are paid or given the watch. In turn that usually means they are a shill or a mark. This one was just fun to see what someone of that wealth had as an entry point. 150k Blinged out Rolex just isn’t realistic.
