I love this review...

I recently purchased this wonderful Blancpain Tourbillion Rose Gold watch with the money I made at the Bingo hall. Ok, I didn't actually win the money, but after I ran over the old lady who did (a few times) with my big wheel, I had enough to buy this watch. Seems as though the old battle ax had had an epic night playing Bingo. So anyway, the next day I was so excited about the watch that I told my special ed teacher. My teacher was very proud of me for being pro-active, and I got a gold star and everything. Then I ran home and told my step mother. However, when I got to the part about running over the old lady with the Bingo money, she beat me like...well...a red headed step child. Did I mention that I have red hair? And that's just another reason to love this watch: It matches my hair.

I made the mistake of picking up a copy of WatchTimes magazine in an airport last year. I had previously thought that a Rolex was an expensive watch and probably cost $10,000 max. I had no idea that there were people out in the world who would pay $400K for a watch. The watches themselves were of course beautiful and look much nicer than the $10 watches at Walmart. But, seriously, $100K? $400K? For a watch?

The watch maker is making a serious mistake in putting such an expensive timepiece on Amazon. It's better that the common people not know of such things.

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

The reviews were VERY tempting, but I caved on a $250 seiko instead:

I guess the 8" APO is still in play for me 8)
