What sort of man watches Evine by Eddie Phluff

On point, now that the Panamanian Parvenu is a Chairman

Our headline is pinched from the headline on the full-page self-ads that Playboy ran in its monthly issues for decades. For those who’ve never read Playboy or despise it for its nudity (or period sexism, or even for its at-the-time daring open-mindedness), these ads weren’t what you’d think they were: Playboy actually was hyping the concept that well-educated men read the ground-breaking magazine for the articles on fashion, mores, sporting equipment, trends, and more. According to Playboy itself, those who read this magazine full of photos of beautiful nude women weren’t buying it just to salivate – they were buying it to educate themselves, to become more rounded, more aware, more attractive, and seemingly, more of a gentleman.

I actually sat down to watch the biggest scourge of serious watch collectors on the evening I wrote this: Invicta wristwatches being sold on a home shopping network that, according to a recent published report, is the fourth most popular on the air, which is a distinction so non-distinct that even failures like CBS’ unpopular recent revival of “The Odd Couple” can look back on its run with relative pride. Evine is so unbearably 1989 that it makes QVC look like it’s broadcast in 8K.

So … what sort of man watches Invicta watch “events” on Evine?

I confess to being the sort of man who watches Evine and have been watching it since 2006 when it was shop NBC. I wonder if Jason Taylor watches Evine...I think he even went on the cruise. But that's OK his name wasn't mentioned since I am a Patriots fan even more so now that owner Kraft is a massage parlor customer.

I have been looking to buy an Edox quartz cronograph. I have never owned an Edox but have heard they are good quality Swiss Made watches. Evine carries the Edox watches which were no where to be seen on QVC or HSN. A better price can be had on eBay for the model I was considering. Plus Evine now charges me MA sales tax.

I think the current sales people do a good job as well as the models, but they should consider bringing back some of the previous talent:
