    It’s a rather pricey 18.00 bucks and I think it’s guaranteed to make it halfway through shipping. Not waterproof at all but for some reason it’s calling me, don’t know why.

    It’s not clear why you haven’t bought 2. Or 3.

    It’s a redial, hands aren’t original, case looks overpolished, not seeing the “Crap Made” at the bottom, I would ask for a movement shot. And I don’t mean you taking a picture of you taking a movement on this watch. ;)

    Seems overpriced at $18. Crown doesn't look original.

    I’ll be honest... I did not see a walrus at first... I saw something a bit more primal.

    Well we walrus are very sensitive about our tusks. After seeing this set I may need to buy a sports car

    They had to paint on the tusks and whiskers to get it through customs.

    With word play like this- I don’t see how people have never embraced Barry as one of the great poets of the 20th century ;)

    Never, never gonna give you up
    I'm never, ever gonna stop
    Not the way I feel about you
    Girl, I just can't live without you
    I'm never ever gonna quit 'cause
    Quittin' just ain't my shtick
    I'm gonna stay right here with you
    And do all the things you want me to

    Indeed the Walrus of luuuuuuuv!
