Submitter’s comments: TW Steel make fancy watches We have pointless Flash intros, a strange “See the world of Watches/See the world of TW steel” round link thing that follows the cursor around, and in the see the world of TW steel bit -some showy hidey Mystery Meat Navigation madness.
I didn’t like it. Maybe you won’t either.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I don’t like it either, which is sad because I really like watches. KidsToday (and many AdultsToday) don’t realize many watches were extremely expensive (except watches like Timex). When I graduated from high school last century my parents bought me “a decent watch” for $150. There were no digital watches. You had to wind them to keep them going. In today’s dollars, the watch would cost $1,100. No wonder my old many lectured me about not losing the watch.
Ironically, the mobile version of TW Steel’s website looks and works a lot better than the Flash-based desktop version.
The Store Locater is a total joke. For “Country” I put USA and for “City” I put Vancouver. I was given a big map and after looking at it I couldn’t tell if there was a store in the area. I don’t think there is one, but why doesn’t it tell me that instead of giving me a map and having me try to see if there’s a store in the area. This massively, massively sucks.
