    Bell & Ross jumps the shark


    If you know me you know I love me some watches.

    Diamond-encrusted gadgets get their comeuppance

    I’ve never been more in agreement with Wired than I am at this very moment.

I’d go a step further and make the claim that diamonds don’t belong anywhere near gadgets. Let the gadget itself do the talking. If… Read More
