Unbelievable. Simply incredible. I hate to brag, but I just picked up a 100% genuine Emporio Armani watch in a Moscow subway - for £15. Can you believe it? Fifteen tiny pounds, genuine Armani. Take a look:
|100% genuine elegance|
|So genuine it almost hurts your eyes|
|Look at my pale, shiny wrist. And the Armani logo.|
|Space-age plastinated leather|
Then there's the body of the watch itself. It looks like solid steel, but it's much, much lighter. Almost as if someone took a plastic watch body, and gave it a thin, shiny veneer. Again, I can only assume this is a proprietary Armani material - some sort of 'metalastic', if you will.
But that's what Armani want to happen. Because what stylish, elegant gentleman wears his watch into the shower? Or allows his watch to get wet, in the rain, when walking around a Russian city in Autumn? Not an Armani gentleman. Look at their brand ambassador, Cristiano Ronaldo. Does this look like a man who allows his watch to get wet?
|No rain on me|
So I say thank-you Armani, and thank-you tiny-dodgy-Moscow-watch-kiosk - for allowing me to share in the elegance of Armani products, at a fraction of the usual price.
