Car shark tonight, names apt for an IW show. :ROFLMAO:

Alan Ennis - "It's only £4 a Litre."

It's only £2.79 a litre on Amazon Alan, now there's a bargain. ;)

Peter - " I used this last week, and this is the best i've ever used."

I'm confused, how can it be the best when IW presenters and Expert have given that title to Renault, because it has the Hydrolex. :unsure:

Just to add more confusion to the Solar Time saga, It's an Indian family that will be wringing their hands. ;):ROFLMAO:

Although Solar Time (who own Dartmouth brands LTD and the Duxot brand) is a Chinese company in Hong Kong, the guy that started it and owns it is Indian, he also has British Citizenship (being in Hong Kong since 1947), probably why his brands are using London as their mailing addresses. Notan Tolani's family fled (when he was one) his part of Indian when it was handed over to Pakistan and his family settled in Hong Kong.
You shouldn't post stuff like this. Why? Cause you'll give IW ideas as to how this should be spun. I can hear Peter S now ...

(imagine the faux sincere voice and face)

'Duxot, not only quality, not only marvel, not only superiority, but also a truly global brand from all 12 continents of the globe.'

Yeah truly global, every part of the Globe except Switzerland. :ROFLMAO:

I see there is a new Solar Time brand being handed out by Watchgang recently, Cortebert 1790, an old Swiss brand that went defuct back 70s, must be a really good chance it will appear on IW with their strong connections with Solar time.

No doubt it will be introduced to IW collectors, as a famous old Swiss brand and because Baselworld was cancelled and special thanks to the Cortebert family we are launching them exclusively here on IW, with hugely, hugely discounted introductory prices. :ROFLMAO:

PS

BTW there isn't any Cortebert family, brand was named after the village they were located in.

Peter says he'll be back at 11.15pm with a brand new iron.

Yeah, brand new last year. ;)

And no doubt we'll get the pleasure of Bev praising this £20 normal steam iron to the rafters after slaughtering normal steam irons when she's flogging the Polti steam generator Iron.:ROFLMAO:

On the Iron

Peter - "another thing is it's anti drip"

Bev - "That's because it's self clean to be honest Peter (waffles on about self cleaning), when you do go to use it, all you are going to get out of there is steam."

Then she Irons a shirt and you can see it's dripped and left a wet streak. :ROFLMAO:

Well looks like the sun beds must be open again, or maybe somebody is handing out fake tan today, judging by Jack's elbows i'm plumping for the latter. :ROFLMAO:

What is it with folks wanting unnatural looking tans?

Gevril tonight folks:cool: Spot the fakery:D

The Gevril watches with the ETA or Sellita movements are ok, RRP is bloody ridiculous though, but wouldn't touch the GV2's with the Ruben & Sons MD3G movement, according to caliber corner it looks very like a Miyota 8215 even has the Citizen Parashock system, which would be very, very strange for a supposedly Swiss made movement and watch.

It's nice to seen Shaun is taking care when handling the near £700 watches by clanking them together. :mad:

Yeah, he's very unprofessional when it comes to handling supposedly luxury watches, even cheap watches don't deserve that kind of treatment.

Saw that Jim fella on the other night showing a chrono with Tachymeter and he admitted he didn't know how it worked:rolleyes: Pretty pointless him being on tbh:ROFLMAO:

As well as having his own consulting company advising watch brands etc, He's a Sales Director for the Dartmouth Brands. Just shows you how low the standards are at Solar Time and their subsidiaries.:ROFLMAO:

That Sub "homage" is way overpriced at 700 odd quid:oops: My Steinhart Ocean One is about 1/2 that and 300m WR:cool::unsure:

I wanted an Ocean one, but ended up going for the Ocean 2 premium, would still like an Ocean one though, one of the vintage or bronze ones.
