Swan & Edgar, on again at 1/2 seven if you missed any you really wantCan't remember the make of watch they were selling last night, but my goodness some of them looked genuinely cheap and tacky. Who buys these things?!? One was called the Ambassador or something and the guest started spouting some GUFF about its design cues and ethos coming from what made Britain great, or something like that. It looked passible in the silver/chrome or whatever it was, but my goodness the IP plated gold version looked like plastic tat you'd get in a grabber machine in an arcade.
And I LOVE how they spout on about IP plating the same way they spout on about bonded leather
Why would you want to wear something that pays "homage" to a taxi? The Hackney with scratch and sniff function. Relive that night out, with lamb kebab infused leatherette strap, a whiff of Lynx, mixed with Vanilla magic tree, a suggestion of vomit. Bonus function this timepiece will ask you if you've had a good night. With a black dial black numerals and black glass, so you've no idea of the time...it could be miles out...but you'll know you've paid over the odds for the privilege.
Not forgetting the "tachometer" that isn'tEven bigger laugh is it's called the Hackney Contrast Timer, think the name is supposed to make you think it's a chronograph, it has two sub dials made to look like chronograph dials, but are just day and month sub dials, the chronograph numbers are just there for show.
