    Saved $58,000 buying watch at Amazon!

    How can you not buy a watch that's on sale for $87,000 and down 40%. OMG...the reviews are killer. :yes:

    [B]5.0 out of 5 stars
    Best Watch Ever![/B], November 27, 2009
    [I]By Jon McAwesome (Awesomeville, SC (pop. 1)) - See all my reviews[/I]

    This review is from: Zenith Men's 96.0529.4035/51.M Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Titanium Chronograph Watch (Watch)

    The Zenith Men's Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Titanium Chronograph Watch or Z.M.D.X.T.B.T.C.M. as I like to call it, is by far the most awesome watch. Chuck Norris riding into the Super Bowl on the back of Godzilla and round house kicking the crowd is no where near as awesome as this priceless poon magnet. When I was just moments from sending my $100k to some needy neo-hippie help group, I stumbled onto this gem. It was like the heavens opened and Jesus himself appeared with this same watch on. I mean how can you not follow Jesus when he's rocking a watch of this caliber. So I asked "What would Jesus do?" Jesus pimp smacked me and said "Forget those hippies, buy the watch!" I was like "HECK YEAH." I busted out my Discover card and bought this rocking piece of art. I mean its art but its also practical too. Like when I take my summer trips to the Marianas Trench, I have no more worries that I am going to miss Tea Time back on the yacht, because water ruined my watch again. It can withstand the immense pressures of the deep due to the wicked awesome titanium. Deep seas, cant beat this. Bullets cant beat this. Heck, I can deflect cruise missiles and the apocalypse. With a watch like this you don't need to tell time, you tell people what time it is.[/QUOTE]

    I saw this a few months ago, pretty funny stuff. The fun of it is why in the hell anyone that has this kind of coin would be buying it from Amazon!?!?!

    Zenith makes a wonderful watch, but I personally find this model to be horrid looking.

    You tend to see the blinged-out watches have exorbitant prices, but that is inflated due to the diamonds, platinum etc. There are some ridiculously priced watches out there that are 10x as much as this one, without the bling. A. Lange & Sohne springs immediately to mind.

    EDIT- LOL, I just saw that Amazon offers $100k Breguets and Blancpains! Ridiculous.

    But that watch automatically takes 4 strokes off your golf game the second you put it on, then gets busy curing cancer when you take it off and rest it on your nightstand.

    If that watch doesn't give BJ's I'm not sure the price is worth it

    Besides, I just look at the placement of the sun in the sky to tell what time it is. Watches are worthless to me unless I'm using the reflection to start a fire.

    Apparently Tannenbaum is wearing one tonight and just sat down for dinner with Revis. Tanny just smiled at him and showed the watch. Revis said, "it's time to make a deal"

    ...and then there was much rejoicing!

    This convinces me that I was wrong -- we can't let the Bush tax cuts expire...

    That is about the going rate for that model. Zenith does have some nice watches but for that price I would start looking at a Patek.

    Definitely can't do much better than Patek Philippe, but I am still partial to A. Lange & Sohne or Blancpain. :yes:
