    Most inaccurate ebay watch description. EVER!

    I defy anyone to beat this.

    Take a look and imagine what the seller might have titled the ad. Then take a deep, d-e-e-p breath and scroll down the page:

    Apparently "tourbillon" means "will work as a TV remote" -

    W O W!

    I guess they picked six words that they figured would give the most hits. Pretty poor and shameless. What a crazy watch, too. I wonder if it actually works!?

    Looks like the seller changed the auction but not the title. I bet both watches are gems.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    Hey Friend, ease up ... we both know that ALL the best watches are packed in cling-plastic mounted to a flimsy cardboard slip ....

    That seller needs to stick with what they (hopefully) know; cheapy cosmetics!

    Cheers!

    Well he certainly knows the words that will get him in search results doesnt he? haha

    That thing is stellar...I'd almost buy it based solely on the tackiness of it....that and I could launch the space shuttle from my living room, and then do my taxes on my watch
