Many years ago, this “hunk” had one of his biggest dilemmas ever: what watch to bring when travelling from the cold north to warmer areas of southern Europe. Along with a much-needed sunblock, his choices were between the glorious Invicta Coalition Forces Sniper or a stunner from Brosway Italy. After struggling for days, the decision was to go for the Invicta, the 50mm beast that certainly was going to make him look awesome, lying beside the pool, tanned and cool.
As the plane took off, something was wrong, and the panic hit him when he realized he had forgotten the watch at home. Having a naked wrist for two weeks was not an option, so on arrival, he ran to the nearest watch shop and invested in a future classic, a Police chronograph with a bad battery installed.
If asked about what movement he preferred, his answer would be that he supported political parties on the left. Jewels were something girls loved and certainly not a part of the chunk of steel on his wrist.
Skipping a decade or so, this “hunk” is still as smooth as then, only, or hopefully, a bit more educated and subtle. Everything must start somewhere and leaving all shame behind, I’m sort of enjoying these memories, even if nobody treated me as the well-built connoisseur I thought I was. The enthusiasm is still there, but the focus has changed as I have accepted and embraced my chickenwrists and hourglass shaped body. Being a blogger, writing reviews and shoot watches wasn’t something I thought would become a reality, but here I am, writing my first post while I’m waiting for a special delivery from Grenchen.
This, being the first post of many to come, I thought this small presentation would be suitable. In this blog-section, there will be more stories, happenings, behind the scenes, tips and tricks, giveaways and other fun stuff, all through a down-to-earth presentation, free from iced Richard Milles, multi-billion-dollar supercars and piles of cash. If your waiting for my review of the Pepsi GMT Master II, Rolex’ waiting lists will feel like one hundredth of a second compared to the time you need to spend at the Chickenwrist’s waiting-room.
