It's both. It's funny that he'd design a 50 mm hockey puck that's completely illegible but sad that they'll be some stupid schmucks that will buy it

True, but since very few purchase Hublot and they don't sell on a shopping network, my shock is much less :lol:

Truly an ugly watch but was designed to be a Ferrari V8, I guess if you want to you could buy a slow super car and and even uglier watch this is the combo you want.

I agree there are differences but will "there will be the open mouth drooling idiot who will purchase that..." for more than $250,000? The quote is courtesy of arubalou. We gasp at Invicta's infated MSRPs..the Hublot is MSRP $345,000.

I agree it sad and funny at the same time. As the old truism goes a fool and his money are soon separated.

True, but while flipping channels last night (no, did not watch the dragons and rape show), I watched with mouth agape as Klingler Krumphamper and those mewling IWG shills touted a bunch of watches "inspired" by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Aquaman, and cripes, maybe Deputy Dog - and not one smaller than 50mm, and every one looked like a Technicolor yawn. I'll take anything Hublot makes over those Chinese monstrosities.

I too viewed Evine and the multicolored Joker watch. No thanks. But, I enjoy watching some happy people because I have learned over the years to ignore the BS. Besides, it's a break from the "Fake news" and chronic complainers that I also watch. My brother is a big fan of GOT, I watched one episode like the CGI but couldn't figure what the hell was going on.

For what it's worth:

I would be impressed if they made that amount per month. If those are annual figures, you can make more selling Toyotas on Guam.

Makes you wonder if they get some commission on units sold.

Hell, a grifter can do better
