Is it just me that sees this as a tad phallic?

You do know this company are well known for their erotic limited edition watches right?

Well noted, i certainly wouldnt have picked up on it, although in this case i dont think erotica was on their minds, you`re right though some watches have moving couples sh.......  err copulating on the dial!:)

Just checked, there are no shaggy watches for sale at Argos or H Samuel.

Thankfully :biggrin:

This one is on ebay with a starting bid of £200:

Description says "Really has to be seen to be appreciated."  I think that's a matter of opinion....  :laugh:

Looks like a bit of gimmicky Off-Shore junk to me... I like a watch I only have to glance at to tell the time!

IMHO I can't imagine actually wanting to buy one, even if I could afford one!

I would accept one as a gift though but then flog it without it ever getting any wrist time!

Seriously, they must be smokin some serious sh!t at Uselyss Nardin.  :yes:

Smiths haven't made watches for many years, but the brand was taken over by another owner.

What comes out of that company is not really Smiths, it's the new owner has a different perception of Smiths watches than I do.

I'm not getting involved any further.:wink:

I just thought that I ought to add this Body Glove dive watch to this thread... They must be having a laugh, surely. Still, if you feel you are underachieving in a certain department then this watch is still available on Amazon UK for £39.99. I notice that a number of other, less phallic, NOS Body Glove dive watches have turned up for sale on Amazon UK, and I quite like some of them, especially the all-stainless steel "Billy" model in different colourways priced at £49.99 except the red dial example which is £69.99.

I love the Freak collection - I've had a couple on my wrist - or maybe I should rephrase that? :biggrin:

Can't say I like the model shown here though and it's yet to appear on the company website.

I think it's great when companies look at new movements to motor a watch. The Freak isn't even UN's freakiest. They now have a poor mans model as well, but I would have to sell a few to buy that. I find it odd that being an ignoramus about movements, that I am attracted to companies that challenge the status quo, so MB&F and in particular, Armin Strom's pure resonance are favourites of mine.
