    I assume she will pick the products they can convince vulnerable people they need...

    Last night was a very special night, as we had "The best horology show on the planet"! This was the claim of Peter Simon. Yes, it was a Peter and Kev 120 minute watch show. The worlds most desired watches were on sale, watch brands like, Mathey Tissot, Vostok Europe and not forgetting an Ideal World favourite, Bermuda.

    So what made this such a special show? That is the question I'm still asking myself! the only reason I can think of is the fact that they had a Mathey Tissot at over 2,000. Not the usual ugly chronograph, but a hand wound 17 jewel job. Yes, very special, but no thank you. Perhaps it was the fact that they were selling the Vostok Ekranoplan (pronounced by Simon as Iraqnoplan (again)), and stating that the watch contained the Seiko NH35, probably the worlds greatest movement. This in fact is probably Seiko's second cheapest automatic movement and sells for under 40 retail. So saying what he did is far beyond ridiculous. Nothing new there I know!

    Viewers also had yet another chance to get their hands on the never to be seen again Vostok Europe Mriya Ana- Digi chronograph. if you didn't manage to get one, don't worry, I'm pretty sure it will be around again in a couple of weeks or so.

    Anyway, after the first hour of the planets greatest horology show, I just couldn't take anymore. I don't believe I've ever heard so much clap trap from a bigger pair of idiots in my life.

    was there a studio audience? He loves having a few people sat on the chairs watching his shtick.

    A mechanical watch should have at least 21 jewels, including a jewelled escapement, so 17 jewels is NOT a quality movement
