To avoid bankruptcy buy ONE watch you like, maybe be ONE strap to compliment it .... then walk out.

Just do what I do. Decide the 9 o'clock logo is a deal breaker. Then walk out and don't spend a penny. Then find another brand who embrace symmetry (the source of beauty), style and tradition. Simples!

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.
