ROFLMFAO

We sell these like Hotcakes!

Seriously - who would wear their Patek cutting the bushes or going to the beach? That's what these watches are for!

That is how the company got its name!

The story goes that the founders were arguing about what to name their new watch company and the debate got very heated - to the point were one person said to the other "you don't know Shit from Shinola!"

True Story~ Very Happy

It is pretty difficult for me to believe that people paid the $1,000 retail for these when they were new...but then...as PT Barnum said...

Its not just these, John, even with the vintage WW market, stuff you and I would laugh at are getting serious money now.

Remember Caravelle? I could buy these for $5 at the marts. Nobody wanted them. Now, the divers Caravelles are getting $250 estimates at the auctions!

They're still junk - with Seiko movements.
