The folks over at Hodinkee.com have the most amazing taste in timepieces.
As I struggled looking for something cool to feature today, they saved my ass by writing about one of the latest watches released by Bell & Ross at BaselWorld this year, the Bell & Ross WWI Monopusher.
According to the article:
The WWI Monopusher uses the pocketwatch-inspired, wired-lug design you’ve seen before in the WWI collection but this time around, Bell & Ross has put a La Joux Perrret mono-pusher chrono movement inside.
To be honest, regardless of whether or not the movement was a mono-pusher or traditional chrono, this watch would be a welcome addition to my imaginary watch collection, especially in the color combination found in the photo above.
So at this point I have two problems:
- I don’t have the $7,600 to purchase this beautiful Bell & Ross WWI Monopusher in steel, and
- I don’t think I have any donate-able organs worth $7,600 to get the money which I will in turn use to purchase the Bell & Ross WWI Monopusher in steel
Partying too much. What can I say.
