Lelijk eendje?

  • 06/04/2008

Nu de beurs in Basel op volle toeren bezig is komen alle merken met hun nieuwste paradepaardjes. Maar daar zitten soms ook vreselijke klokjes bij!

Wat mij betreft is deze Zenith Mega Port Royal Tourbillon een bijzonder onhandig en lelijk horloge, maar toen ik het verkooppraatje erbij las schoot ik toch echt in de lach!

Taking inspiration directly from the urban and futuristic jungles of New York and Tokyo, the Port Royal Collection came into being when two epochs collided. From Metropolises to Megalopolises, Port Royal has taken one step further towards an avant-garde design by offering these new 2008 models with cases of even more massive and straight-edged architecture. Unique power, exaggerated proportions, athletic build, tight lines. The symbol of absolute virility, wearing a Mega Port Royal means channelling all one’s energy to one’s wrist. The individual can control his fate thanks to the taming of his inner strength, like a modern-day Samurai putting his entire strike force into a single punch to the heart of his timepiece. In other words, this is not a watch you can entrust to just anyone’s hands.
