I Let My Girlfriend Pick Out My Wardrobe

I should put it out there that I’m not a bad dresser. At least, I don’t think I am? I will, however, admit that I dressed terribly from birth until, like, five years ago.

Nixon watches saw a need, filled it, and then some. Though it emerged from the need for an active and stylish watch that could live in both worlds equally, the brand has become a statement of modern times that’s expressed through an age-old medium.

Franck Muller Watches

A friend of mine really likes this watch. I've been reading your stuff for a few years now, and I don't think I've ever heard of this watch maker. Plus 14k seems like a lot for this watch to me. .
