Fools and their money

When my fellow Director and I come to take our company dividends at the end of the tax year one thing we will not be splashing out on is this.


Quite apart from the fact either myself or Matthew actually wear a watch why the hell would you want to spend 600 quid on a box that holds six. WHO NEEDS SIX WATCHES.

And people tell us books are expensive, jeeeez. Maybe we need to open a branch on Bond Street, start covering the books in baby Ostrich skin and sell 'em for 300 a pop to hedge funders and premiership footballers. Now that's a plan.

  2. An Octopus needs eight watches. This box would be useless for an octopus.

  3. Why does an octopus need eight watches? I've got two arms, but I only need one watch.

  4. Short memories, they can never remember which wrist their watch is on (do octopi have wrists?)

  5. If I could take this discussion to a higher, more literary level for a moment...

    Bananas Gorilla, from the Richard Scarry books, had a whole armful of watches!

  6. Obviously, they're all set to different time zones, so he knows when to call his relatives all over the world without waking them up.

    You should see my recent post about Amazon selling expensive watches... A 600 quid box is nothing compare to a 25k watch!
