@playboyheafner had a great post asking, “What’s the trend in 2022 that leaves a bad taste in your mouth?”
And, like, at least 50% of the comments said, “Purple dials”!!!
What’s not to like about purple dials? They’re awesome! It gives the watch a pop of color. It’s fun. And, well, purple is the color of royalty, after all - so, you know, if you like the idea of despotic rule and hemophilia due to genetic bottlenecks as a result of in-breeding amongst an insular group, then purple is definitely for you!
@BRSEvolve has produced the XX121 watch. Available in black and purple dial.
Black will run you $189.99 and purple costs $215.99
So, I got the purple!
The watch is solid as a rock! The bracelet is sturdy. Everything about the watch screams sturdy!
Once upon a time, I owned the Christopher Ward C65 Trident...
Was it a good watch? Sure. Was it sturdy? Sure. Was it worth the $795? Sure. I guess. Maybe? I mean, it was a nice watch, don’t get me wrong. But, in the face of something like the XX121 in purple? F*ck no, the CW C65 Trident is not worth it! Which of the two watches would I rather have? Definitely the XX121 in purple.
Where does the XX121 fall short? For me, the bracelet sizing. I have a 17-cm wrist, and I’ve taken out all the removable links (at least I think I have - but, then again, I have the mechanical aptitude of a mollusk), and the bracelet only just barely fits me. If I haven’t done something wrong, there aren’t enough removable links for a wrist smaller than 17-cm. Ultimately, it’s fine for me no matter what, because I have like 80 random straps, so whatever. But, just so you know.
There should be an advertising campaign for the XX121: "@BRSEvolve XX121… purple is the new green"
Now, you gonna keep hating on purple? Or are you gonna join the rest of us enlightened folks who love despotism and endogamy?
