    And then we have the Invicta car…a vision of loveliness

    D0016156-F668-402F-BFD2-5657C7522859.jpeg

    And then we have Invicta watches…..here’s mine which I use for really shitty jobs, it’s covered in grinding burns and welding spatter

    It’s one of their more tasteful efforts……unlike these truely hideous contraptions

    The NSU Ro 80, a car I use as an analogy for any watch who’s movement’s natural state is broken. Including dead-second mechanical vintage watches, Omega Speedsonic lobsters, various quartz models etc

    Or how about the Ford Everest suv made for the Asian market, and the Hamilton Everest Electric.

    Surprised to see nobody mentioned the obvious link between the Porsche 911 and the Speedmaster. Both have gone through over half a century of evolution and are still easily recognizable as being relatives.

    Or yet another connection. In Canada, the Ford built Meteor Rideau, and the Birks Rideau watches.

    I can’t sell the Love Bug - he knows too much about me…

    I haven’t seen many of the Beatles collab watches being offered. Japanese market, maybe?
