    I didn’t even know that watch boxes existed until this post. I suppose I should have assumed.

    Wow. I thought I was the only one with THAT serious a watch addiction… I still have my first LED from the Emporium in San Francisco from 1975.

    Agree with #13: Most quartz watches under $300 use the same low grade movements coming out of China, or maybe a lower end Swatch group movement (if you’re lucky).

    And those black on black chrono hands? A lesson is in how to render something immediately useless right off the line.

    Lastly (for now) the custom shaped strap: Yours will break 6 months after they stop making replacements.

    What a delight, the perfect bling for those who’ve undergone a tastectomy.

    Hey Cory, somewhere I have a Casio watch that tracks the movement of the planets. It has a little Solar System model on it. Serious. Nanner-nanner, goo-goo.

    HUGE watch, unfortunately, but I can never understand why more watches don’t have functional compasses, which can me more useful than knowing the time!

    i think that’s awesome. i love it.

    I’d get one, but the diesel exhaust would annoy my office mates.

    You have to be careful when buying a watch with a built-in compass (if you expect the compass to work), because the watch’s battery can throw the compass off.

    55.5mm. seriously.

    I’m pretty sure the gigantic watch trend is rapidly becoming played out. Even if I’m wrong, 55.5mm is outsize by even the most hipster of standards.

    As soon as Diesel returns to making wrist-sized timepieces again, I’ll return to buying them. Until then, I’ll just laugh at them (and you if you buy one).

    Black hands on a black face. Perfect watch for Hotblack Desiato.

    Jeez -55.5 mm ? Have they run out of imperial units?

  14. Cunning says:

    Badass? Bitch, please. My watch has a DZ1318 inset on the bezel. It’s called the Resonator because it make my arm look like it’s stuck in an MRI machine.

    55mm? Flavor Flav says “Whatchoo want with that tiny thang?”

  16. Ernunnos says:

    Nice watch? It’s a cheap commodity quartz movement with an equally cheap and easily scratched mineral crystal, slapped in a unnecessarily large and graceless case with a gumball machine compass. Completely disposable.

  17. Teller says:

    Jinxed. No – Just look at it.

  18. Robert says:

    55.5 mm? That sounds enormous…ly uncomfortable. And is it Diesel because it’s black on black? Like oil on an oil-soaked sea bird?

      Robert, Diesel is fashion brand that makes a lot of things (known for their jeans in the US). They also have a couple watch brands (Fossil, Diesel). My subjective opinion is that Diesel watches are some of the most profoundly ugly timepieces I’ve ever seen, but there’s a certain set that’s into that. ;-)

    I don’t see what’s so great about it … and the only thing gigantic-huge, is the photo.

  20. scifijazznik says:

    Speaking as someone with a light to moderate watch fetish, that thing is beyond ugly.

    i’d remove the strap and mount it as a wall clock – awesome

    Yo dawg, I heard you like telling time, so I put a watch in your watch so you can tell time while you’re telling time.

    (I probably crossed some internet line with this post, but I did learn of this meme from the oft-linked “Know your internet meme.”)

    The compass is a nice touch. Your lost if you’ve got this watch.

    BIG is the new Black.
