Anyway, let me introduce your to Shinola – an AMERICAN watch company. How about that?

And they just released the Henry Ford pocket watch… It’s pretty cool.

Check it out.

Ignore the “Chev”

Some bloke sent me the above video just the other day… And it reminded me of why I love Australians. Ignore the “Chev.”
