Watch Review: Memphis Belle Heritage

Post by JAS1125 » Fri May 03, 2019 8:36 am

The sound you hear is Colonel Robert Morgan spinning in his grave like a lathe.

My grandparents came over from Sicily many moons ago with a few possessions, a small amount of saved cash and a big stash of hopes & dreams. As they took root in their new country, and as the years went on in constant pursuit of tapping into that stash of hopes and dreams, my grandmother was extremely raising their 7 children and my grandfather was busy working in his barbershop and putting himself through law school. My grandparents never lost sight of those hopes & dreams. They both did everything with love and passion, something that I continue to draw great inspiration from. I am drawn to drive and passion in a lot of aspects of my life. I will narrow it down to our subject at hand, watches. Recently Wes from Nodus watches brought something that I have often thought about. That thought is how the big names in the watch industry have replaced that drive from passion with the drive to make money. That’s why I am drawn more to microbrands, independent watch makers, ect. They are still driven by passion because they have more to lose and have heart, they have a face, they aren’t hidden behind huge marketing bullshit. At Basel this year ROLEX made something quite apparent, the shift away from big brands has made them take notice. Quite apparent by the new meteorite dial ROLEX. Unfortunately in my opinion simply taking design cues from microbrands isn’t enough to fill the void of that lost passion.

That's the "Memphis Belle Heritage"?!?

That's a "watch reviewer"?

A joke "reviewing" a joke. It's so beyond awful it can't be calculated, but I can't say that the garbled syntax and misplaced fawning aren't a laugh riot. :lol:

As usual, Bazinga! never fails to not disappoint. Both the review and the wartche are utter fucking shit. To compound the utter shittiness, the wartche apparently costs upwards of $1500, although Bazinga! may well have gotten a Millennials & Shills discount.

Indeed....and never has a meme gif been so appropriate.

Hey, you guys all need to get laid. What a bunch of grumpy old fucks, you wouldn't recognize fine art in watches or tattoos. Fuckers don't appreciate mad photography skills either you lived spotted bastards.

Good lord. Yeah, Rolex is following micro brands for design cues.

Bazinga! is to watch reviews what bicycles are to fish.

Rolex has had meteorite dials for a while. When Invicta came out with theirs, they were comparing the cost to Rolex, so that has to be at least ten years now. When one makes such an idiotic statement about Rolex getting that idea from an micro brand, it’s time to just quit the blog.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
