    Angry Ever want to take a shotgun to a watch? I did.

    The result when looking for an inexpensive slide rule watch on eBay was so bad that I ended up taking a shotgun to it.

    Youtube video here:

    An up-close camera to film the impacts would have been awesome.

    first of all that video is worth more than 20 bucks so the watch was well worth the cost and the shipping :)

    second, the fact that you shot it with a shotgun and it kept ticking :| i mean... that's the best 4 dollar watch in the world :|

    A great watch review! I loved it. Good for you in not caving in on the negative feedback.

    Hilarious. And thank you... I now have a reason to buy a $4 watch.

    But if you do not resize this and use it in your sig, you're doing the internets wrong:

    Absolute quality.
    That is certainly a unique way of dealing with the watch.
