    Watch brands read wrongly.

    Today a guy happened to look at the watch I was wearing and he exclaimed "oh look it says Homos."

    That's a good looking watch. Screw him. I hope you popped him in the mouth.

    The common ones that I'm familiar with are ETA being spelled out, rather than the correct eytah pronunciation. And the rather confusing correct French pronunciation, jaay-jerrr vs the incorrect German yaygrr for Jaeger LeCoultre.

    Re: Watch brands read wrongly.

    On WUS we see many close up wrist and sample pics. Some stranger glancing at your wrist does not have the luxury of a clear image or brand knowledge. I can see how a capital N can be seen as H at a glance.

    That being said, I had heard a few people saying Longines as "Long'eens" and more commonly "Long - Ines" LOL, must be a Murica thing

    Any time I read --- "Cuervo Y Sobrinos" --- in my mind it's just like a mumble that I skip over, luckily I don't think I'll ever have to say it out loud.

    Even so called experts have been known to say gla-Shoot instead of Glas-hoo-te

    Popping him in the mouth may not be the correct response to his comment. Snicker.

    If you drink enough Cuervo, you won't be sobrinos enough to do anything more than mumble anyway :)
