Simply hillarious.


Subliminal linking...There are a few sellers on ebay that always do this. They put the item on top of a picture of a sexy model or an actress, totally tapping into the sexual nature of the potential buyer. One of my favorite Cartier Tanks was pictured sitting on top of a Marilyn Monroe photo. Sex sells!

It's funny ... I like it, too. And the main thing that separate it from a Cartier is the absence of the "square" in the middle. It actually looks kind "neat" without that square.

Right. That's called a Chapter Ring. Some watches look good without it, while others not so much. The Pulsar tank I have doesn't have one. It does have a second track on the outside that doesn't have the square.

It has a second hand (which took some getting used to,) and a date window too. The case is a bit bigger than the Seiko, and the strap is 21mm, which narrows to around 19mm at the buckle end (which also used to bother me, but not so much these days.)

Here's the ladies' version:

A few current eBay listings, which would be a great choice for a bold woman ...

A Hamilton Seckron, clearly modelled after the Rolex Prince:

Another vintage beauty, a Hamilton "Sherwood" gold men's watch which I reckon would look even better on a woman's wrist:

$595. No "Best offer" option.
