It all began with a contentious post on a FB watch group. “What is the Holy Grail of watches?”
Not surprisingly, there was no clear consensus … or any other form of consensus. There was rancor, disagreement and ridicule.
So I proposed a watch steeped in subversive history and with no affiliations to compromise brand loyalty.
The watch is manufactured by the Unemployed Philosophers Guild, which make all manner of Western pop culture kitsch. The problem is that such an iconic watch deserves better than the cheap Made in China case and strap, the cheap Miyota quartz movement (with Cleese twirling his umbrella in halting second increments) and missing detail in the John Cleese figure present in earlier higher quality BBC releases.
I have degrees in Biochemistry and Dentistry and practice clinically 2 day a week. The rest of the week I devote to photography and bringing you the best writing in this blog.
