    Default old donkey, sorry hondikee

    This watch made me laugh my Head off. How many watches do you think this eyesore has pillaged from?



    What is it with modern watches, there seems to be a distinct lack of competent designers.

    Isn't this supposed to be a joke? It just has to be!

    Looks likes a royal oak, panerai and a gmt. Horrible...

    It was made 'ironically'.
    I suggest they destroy it 'quickly'.

    Lume dial and non-lume hands? Sacrilege!

    Looks like a student challenge project from the parts bin.

    It was made to take the p*** out of the swiss watch industry for their lack of innovation. Whilst I agree its horrible it's done it's job of getting people talking and provoking a reaction. With the current spate of re-editions and endless variations on the same models it's about time someone pointed out how boring and lacking in new ideas the big brands have become.

    Almost as funny as that Rolex Daytona "Solo" that was found to be 'slightly modified', after the dink was gushing all over it...

    today's Hodinkee email states this watch has already been removed from the maker's web site. I wonder how many VP's heads will
    roll.

    Appears to be 6 as some parts double used

    Rolex GMT insert and Oyster bracelet, Girard-Perregaux Gold bridge and maybe bezel shape, Patek Aquanaut dial, Breguet hands, Panerai dial and crown guard and AP Royal Oak case

    Paul, After all it IS a fake tourbillion. They left no stone unturned on this one. The Pepsi bezel sets off the poor man's Royal Oak case perfectly, and the beating heart of the fine Chinese hand crafted movement is visible through the dial. $50 says it has a display back? Timeless....
    This thing gives my Junkers a run for the money?

    I think that they have stopped their joke idea and pulled it from their site. Good job too, certainly not the most attractive watch ever!

    If it's big and flashy enough Russian Mafia bodyguards will wear it
    If I had served God half as well as I have served the King, he would not have given me over to die in such a place as this
