This is more than a Fifty Fathoms Homage!

29/11/2020 10:01 am This is more than a Fifty Fathoms Homage! So yes. It’s been done to death and everyone knows how amazing it is blah blah blah.

24/11/2020 11:39 am Indestructible, Notoriously Overbuilt and with an X-factor, or, shortly put – the Victorinox I.N.O.X. Now, before I begin the review, there’s something you should know – I’ve been a long-time fan of Victorinox and I own a bunch of their products – from pocket knives and multitools to kitchen knives and wine openers.

“the quizzical comfort of cotton balls”

21/11/2020 7:49 am “the quizzical comfort of cotton balls” What do you get when you cross a hardcore military born hummer with a Lexus LC coupe … something very much like an EBEL 1911 BTR GMT … It even sounds like a sports car… it’s obviously not!

20/11/2020 6:20 am When 2001 was the future! It’s an oft repeated phrase from Nick Hayek Jr, “The Swatch watch saved the Swiss industry”. With that in mind, meet the original plastic watch. The Tissot Research IDEA 2001, launched in 1972 as a budget mechanical to fight quartz.

17/11/2020 2:46 pm I’m so avant garde I don’t even see gender anymore. Oh, my Bulgari Octo, ceramic.

(They do however wear more like 34.45 on the wrist […] The post Ebony and Ivory appeared first on FIFTH WRIST. FIFTH WRIST
