Very funny - saw this yesterday while eating a quick lunch.

Kind of obvious what he selected. I was hoping for something a little more daring.

I like when Federico ragged on the shite produced by Panerai the other day in this video...

I was unfazed by the majority. The only ones with any real impact is the discussion about Radium and its use within lume, which I have kind of touched upon at various points, and the RJ Titanic DNA. The rest is just ”art”. 

The Titanic DNAs do kind of have me on the shelf a little. I did have the opportunity to purchase one around 6 years ago, and to be honest the main reason at the time is that I didn’t think the price the seller was asking was justified. Upon many many years of reflection, I’m actually glad I didn’t anyway because the more I think about it, the more uncomfortable I am about having a watch that uses material supposedly from the hull of the Titanic. I’m reminded of another Channel 4 (UK) show called “4 Rooms” whereby 4 collectors had the opportunity to purchase obscure and rare items that people had (Elvis’s golf cart, etc…). One episode in particular saw Chilean artist Marco Evaristti bring in his sculpture of the entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camp made from gold teeth and fillings. He claimed his grandmother had left him her gold teeth when she died, and that he had acquired a jar of gold teeth from an Austrian dealer who told him that the likely source was from Holocaust victims. The artist told the dealers that his sculpture was important as it expressed how cruel human beings could be. The simple questions raised here were what the fuck, why, and have you gone too far (and at the risk of shutting down discussion - fuck yes, this thing didn’t need to exist). Three of the buyers refused to make an offer, and one of the buyers offered him £37,000 to destroy it there and then. It went unsold. 

Anyway, on a similar parallel, the Titanic was a tragedy, and Andrew uses the same term I feel about it - grave-robbing. The Titanic DNA series doesn’t really need to exist, it seems almost obscene to wear a watch fabricated from the wreckage of a tragedy, and (to me) might be one of the most offensive (series of) watches going, and that’s from someone who nearly bought one. The rest is just whimsy, and I feel cheapens the two serious entries here which would make for interesting discussions down the line. Anyway, I’ll stop being serious for a second… haha Invicata haha.

The Winner watch looks actually like a typical representative of their brand - you can get it on Ali for £15.85. Winner also make some watches that look like watches, but not many.
