Post Chinese branding.
-----------

I think it is astounding that the Chinese can make good watches. I have been cruising Aliexpress.

But when it comes to naming their products they turn right around and shoot themselves in both legs.

This particular watch looks great but who the feck wants it when it is named like it is :lol: :lol:

And no it is not Hardlove. it is Handlove.

So true :lol:

Did you note the last edition of Parnis "Luminous Manual" :mrgreen:
taobao.com delivers more fun when you search with "看表"

Being an automatic, it may just decide for you when it is time for some... hopefully not on a crowded subway ride :lol:

Why, is "bagel sport" code for some form of a sex act that I am unfamiliar with?

No, and that's exactly the problem! It's just a lame brand name... Imagine that, a bagel running. At least handlove is sexy

LOL, bagel running :). However, I got curious, and I typed this into google: "bagel sex reference" :wtf: What do you know, it IS a thing and probably NSFW :o and emilio666, you are right, hand love is preferable, at least to me!

I would quite like a link to that watch.
Some time ago the bought a cheap iPod clone from China that had a sixteen page instruction book in English. The grammar and punctuation were quite perfect, which was even more extraordinary as not a single sentence made any sense whatsoever.

I still can't get over PARNIS watches.

I modded one into a PENIS watch and gave it to a friend

I can`t get over Parnis either.

I found some of them rebranded to Holuns, though. Much better, sounds like a Swedish name.

Thank you Sir. I'm a regular offender on Aliexpress. I searched every way I could think, but couldn't find it. It's quite pricey for Aliexpress

:lolno: :lolno: That's too funny. Their naming practices have definitely prevented me from making many purchases.

Anyone seen Bagelsports available anywhere lately? I have a sub but I'd really like to get the Milgauss. I'm kicking myself for not snapping up more of them when they were dirt cheap, the name is the greatest and who doesn't love STAINLESS STEELBACK, especially when I think they all had display backs.
