Can't get that? Get this.

Remember when one car manufacturer actually did designed a hand phone? It was an awful one. Then Porsche came out with watches. No no they are not as ugly as that phone. Anyone remember which manufacturer came out with that phone? I can't recall. Ok ok, here are some pictures on Porsche's timepieces.



Look they even have an table alarm clock, how cute..


This even comes with a model car..


Even the mighty Cayenne is not spared.


Looks like one from Nike or Adidas..


Oh how cute..



Get your girlfriend or wife this instead of the real thing on Valentine's Day.

The main star in this post is this. One hella giant sculpture of carbon fiber and aluminium, just like the real thing. It almost mimics its deep rumble too. This is the Pagani Hi-Fi Sterio. Can't own the Zonda but want to have something from Pagani? Here this would suite you perfectly.

Yes it has a two turn-tables as well. A 33 and 45 rpm one. Wipe that drool off guys. I'm sure this Pagani would cost RM more-than-a-average-car.

My point here is why would those great car companies introduce these products? It will just spoil their own name. I suppose it's because of branding and money. A Porsche watch is supposed to be good. A Porsche watch is supposed to be lighter and more stylish than other watches. A Porsche watch is supposed to be an extension of the Porsche branding. Bullshit. If I want a good watch, I would look at branded watch manufacturers not at car manufacturers. Imagine having your market butcher doing your plumbing. Imagine a profesional sprinter doing the discus. Please please stop all this blasphemy. Porsche has loads of good cars under them. Please don't make them look cheap by naming a watch after them. This goes out to other companies too. Please stick to your own range of products.
