    Another article bashing Panerai, in addition to another thread on this board about the brand. Is it official, Panerai is no longer cool? Dan

    Pan and Pan homages with the chunky, rectangular crown guards still make for a unique look and they're not going away anytime soon. This guy doesn't have his finger and thumb on the pulse of anything at all. Ignore the haters, they're still cool.

    I am the self-proclaimed arbiter of all that is cool and as my first duty in office, I deem the Pan hater WRONG.

    The guy writing the articles is doing his imitation of a shock jock, only on the internet. He has to do something to keep eyes on his website which generates higher potential for advertising revenue. Every time we link to his obnoxious opinionated articles we play right into his hands.

    Very well put ulackfocus! That is very true. I've read his articles and while it does have some logic behind it, it's main focus is to arouse the emotions of the reader. It is something to think about who he's target audiences are.
    just my 2 cents!

    Best,

    Daniel

    Watch Snob most likely gets ideas from reading WUS public forum

    Don't mention it, do not take it serious. Don't feed it. Just my two cents.
    Kind regards

    +1 +1 +1, guess that is actually +3 then.

    Do not give this guy links on this site, it only helps his site out. If you understand (not you Mike) how websites work with rankings, then do not help this guy anymore by posting a hyperlink.
    Better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done...

    He's clearly writing for entertainment value, and I find it entertaining. You guys (and most of us) are smart enough to know it's not meant to be taken seriously. So why tell us we shouldn't read it? Because he makes ad revenue off of increased web traffic? That's like saying we shouldn't have watched Seinfeld because the network made ad money based on his ratings.

    Can we calm down please?

    The Watch Snob is a fictional character whose opinions are clearly not to be taken seriously. They're intended for entertainment, and they succeed. He's funny, ironic, outrageous, and . . . snobbish.

    Peace

    Mike

    Because Panerai makes watches that are at the extreme that makes them a target. If you like the style of their watches then ignore opinions on self-important sites like Askmen and go for the model you like.
