A good start! That’s not where all stops, though – we also get 15 informants/watchers from the common populace, all with the respective quirks phrased within the confines of their table-entries and adding a surprising quality to the […]

Anytime I see a big, well built watch I stare — wide eyed and filled with wonder — like a 4-year-old at Disney world for the first time. Here is a list of five different watches that I love. Men’s Invicta Reserve Venom It’s a heavy watch that was designed to withstand 1000 meter dives. Not that I would ever dive that deep, but my watch could go. The leather strap doesn’t pull that hair on my arm when the weight of the watch gets twisted on my writs from walking movement. […]
