    Hehe I would not call it cool nor insane. I guess its just one of those things some guys go through when they reach their 60's ;)

    Speaking of the Zeniths, writing "extra special" on the dial makes it so much less special to me. It is like when a product is named "luxury" instantly making it tacky and the opposite of luxury.

    I agree, the writing is unnecessary. But it's just a detail. I don't know why, but somehow this watch appeals to me, it's that irrational thing, you know.

    I thought that was a joke, but apparently they do actually make a watch with 'Extra Special' on the dial. Wow. That's absolutely unbelievable...

    Okay, so here's my offer. I will type 'TAG Heuer' every time (and thus avoid the need to keep paying $10) if you guys type 'Heuer by TAG Heuer' when referring to any watch bearing the Heuer name made after 1985.

    Deal?

    Don't look at me, I already always reference @TAGHeuer as the manufacturer on all my Instagram shots.

    :whipped:

    In that case, you only would avoid to pay the $10 typing 'Techniques d'Avant Garde'

    :D :D

    What’s in a name? I bought my watches because of the style/design, yes it’s nice to have a McQueen Monaco*or drive a Honda* that Senna helped develop but, if they had been made by “back street knock up” ltd. I still would have bought them, it’s the object I buy or desire not the hype( sorry if I have just caused a few heart attacks) so brand ambassadors or sponsorship would not colour my decisions.

    * Both items I lusted after since first seeing them and it took some time until the piggy bank had enough to cough up. Now for the Lotus Elan +2s.:D If only.
