    Haven't watch this dude in a while since he deliberately made that mocking video of Tag Heuer. I am curious about Aquis Cherry though. :D

    I stopped watching after the Tag bash as well. I am tired of so many of these bloggers/influencers bashing a brand while not ever owning or trying one out. The big gripe is always the plastic spacer, Dubios Depraz chronograph movement, Quartz, etc...

    They don’t say that about Speedmasters ant it’s plastic spacer, modular AP chronographs, Tissot PRX, etc...

    Heuer/Tag Heuer has and is making some really great designs with horological and historical significance over the years. I know I am preaching to the choir here as it is a forum for all things Tag and Heuer. I just would like to listen to one review that is just positive on the brand from beginning to end.

    Rant over - viva la #tHEUERsday !!!

    I have seen a few recently. It's just a shame that the reviewer always has to acknowledge the hate for the brand amongst some watch enthusiasts.

    Yeah, but what they don't know is Dubois Depraz even being used in manufacture like AP.

    Cartier also use plastic spacer. They don't know about it or choose to be blind.

    But anyway recently my youtube alogarithm is changed, now they all refer me to watch bloggers that praising Tag Heuer.

    Weird stuff, Youtube is.

    It's all about the likes and the subscribes ;)
    Very populist place Youtube. Everyone just sees a feed they want to see or Youtube AI thinks you want to see. Tunnel vision to the max.
    TAG Heuer might try giving these trolls less ammunition.

    Wearing my Pope P-70 today. Absolutely love this one. It's not the highest-end watch in the world, but I've always thought it was a really unique design. It's inspired by a WWII bomber - down to the wing-shaped hands and the pin-up art on the caseback. It features a Rhonda quartz movement that has been perfectly reliable over 8ish years.

    This was originally a Kickstarted campaign, which I got in on, and much to my surprise, the watch was actually produced. Mine is serial number 0000092. I'm not sure how many were made in total, but the company appears to have folded shortly after their initial production run.

    The watch originally came with a really rich, brown racing-style (or I suspect they'd say aviation-style) strap, but I currently have it on a Barton red alligator strap, which I enjoy a lot.

    Photos are not from today....

    Here is the way it came originally:

    That caseback seems very appropriate for a Pope :thumbsup:

    Haha, that's funny.

    Pope actually refers to one of the first airfields used for planes, back in the infancy of flight. Another aviation reference for the watch!

    Anyone who talks trash to something or someone doesn’t deserve a second of your life. #respect

    I can understand if he doesn’t agree on trivial things but atleast he should be respectful. I just think he needs to make a living. I somehow pity those.

    Nice. You were lucky to get one of those as they sold out in minutes.

    Talking of sold out within minutes, looks like this may have done as well.
