I know it wasn’t. Trouble is with reviewers (of all walks of life), at some point they will always do a shock and awe review either for ratings or, er, bants.
Is that right?
It was me though.
I don’t think dissing watches will get me a lot of extra following on the forum
I didn’t walk into an AD, as per analogy, and called the 50th Monacos crap. Nor did I tell anyone who bought and showed it on the forum. I think it’s fantastic so many forum buddies love them and I genuinely relate to anyone’s love for them. They’re not for me and I gave my impressions of them when they were released. Now Rob called me out again
I like all opinions and if it wasn’t clear, everything I generally say is in jest
Er, maybe. If we class Clarkson as a reviewer. He’s Captain shock and awe.
Well written and good post, well done Rob! I especially enjoyed these two parts that summarizes all one need to know about the Titan:
"the silver dial looks very cool"
"the sparkling silver dial (the standout feature of this one for sure)"
Crazy how high this one scored from the COCO. This is obviously watch of the year? Not one single release is close to this score right
Nowhere near, but actually this score would have put it equal third with the Montreal Carrera and the Bamford Aquaracer last year...
Boom! I knew this one would do well.
Boom indeed. It was a super close fight for the top spot, now it's a super close fight for runner up!
I own a red thing, and every time I look at it I cream my crackers.
Perhaps it needs to be seen in person to appreciate the full majesty, buxom sub dials and all.
I think the rankings will change quite a bit by the end of the year. My enthusiasm for some watches has been waning, while others have been growing on me.
I stand by my ‘they are all horrible apart from the wallpaper one which is worse’.
M3s are harder to rank, I’d probably say e30, e46, e36, e92 and then whatever that gopping new thing is
Well there we are ladies and gents....
Absolutely. It's funny how the hype machine is working this year, it's almost like 'create a buzz' make it limited, create 'fomo', release and sell them before the buzz dies off and people have a chance to think!
The year is yet young, who knows what TH may spring upon us, of course it be something ‘boggin’
Yes true, perhaps the upcoming "Dark Lord" will score higher. Or maybe that one will be released in 2022, cant remember now.
the Murdered-out Black version isn’t so bad at all
