    What the hec an article like this and no picture of the watch. I hope they were nice. Sorry wrote indicted in the header meant to write guilty. Anyway I heard about this case a while ago and have been following it. This watch has become my new grail

    The watch can't be too much to get excited about given that it only cost slightly less than $40 to manufacture.

    Based on this watch from the same company, expecting a Shinola (or even Invicta) would be optimistic.

    "Joe Ashton has spent 50 years working for the workers of the UAW."

    I believe it was 50 years working for himself.

    Well of course you can’t spend money on an item when it’s only meant to line your pocket

    Why no! No corporation ever exploited a worker! Goodness no.

    unfortunately, gouging and greed seem to be part of what makes the world go round... its quite depressing really.
