    Brand names destined to fail?

    AUTHENTIC SWISS RARE ANAL CHORNO MEN'S WRISTWATCH on eBay.ca (item 140442817974 end time 17-Mar-11 19:25:06 EDT)

    anyone else have any examples of a watch marketing faux pas?

    Rolex. Doesn't even mean anything, and sounds really cheap.

    I have to agree. If a person didn't know it was supposed to mean "luxury", "craftsmanship", "status", or "history", you'd think it was a Wal*Mart special. Timex sounds classier, and it's only passable.

    Actually it is the All Nippon Airways logo, so it could have been an item for sale to its customers.

    That almost made me spit up my beer.
    Don't try finding the watch company via a google search either....

    I have to wonder what your search words were thought....
