Let’s talk about “jumping the shark”

Post by svaglic » Mon May 01, 2023 7:12 am

Original price $3195.00. Now…$499.99.

This is one of the most hideous watches I’ve ever seen. Thank God it is a limited edition.

$3195.00 to $499.99, if you like it, it’s a hell of a deal. If I spent $3195 on it then saw it go down to $499, I’d be pissed.

Gevril and Gv2 usually put out decent looking, well made stuff. I just don’t know what happened here though.

There is usually a point to a design. I do not understand this look.
I looked it up, it is inspired by the Triton submarine. I sure didn’t get that when I looked at it.

If I had a vested interest in the Triton submarine, I would be gagging on this tribute watch. The Kansas City Railroad pocket watch from several years ago beats this hands down.
