Love the EAGLE E-Type!It is a nice looking watch, I would like one, but then again I would like an Eagle E type convertible as well.
Will it be ridiculously expensive because Ben has had an input....yes.
Would I buy anything because it had a link to a internet watch blogger/influencer......no.
The only content I’ve read has been reviews on watches I’m interested in. So, I can’t speak to their content.No, but admit it, there's plenty to hate. I enjoy hating Hodinkee, I'm glad it exists. In fact, I wonder if at least 50% of their content isn't an elaborate hoax.
The tri-color subdial is traditional of yacht timers. Normally they have a 15 minute countdown, so regatta entrants can track the time between when the start horn sounds and when the yachts are permitted to cross the starting line, with each 5 minute interval having a different color for easy identification of approximate time remaining. The Skipperrara didn't have a countdown like the original Heuer model it's inspired by, but did retain the tri-color arrangement of the subdial.There must be a really good reason for the jarring tricolour subdial that I don't understand.
Normally I would google it, but it really doesn't matter.
All I see is a watch somehow uglier than the Monaco from Tag. I didn't think it possible but here we are.
It's a no from me.
I hated Hodinkee before anyone else. I'm like a kind of hate hipster. Lemmings are following me, baby.If someone is unable to see past the Hodinkee or Tag hate to appreciate the Skipper, that's a reflection on their inability to evaluate things on their own merit. Lemmings gonna lemming.
