    Sickening excess...the photo of all those high end watches just thrown into a desk drawer makes me ill. (see photo pg 118)
    Also, I found this on page 117 quite amusing: his collection includes \"numerous models from brands like Panerai, Breitling, U-boat, Ritmo Mundo and Invicta\"...INVICTA?!?

    How much bullshit Arnold can talk about watches? Is he just stupid about it or really cannot he realise how many shit he\'s saying? And he designed one royal oak? How can someone besides Genta can say that? Came on, designing is not just changing the material and the size of A ALREADY DESiGNED object and you can say you designed it.... Can someone says to Arnold that he didn\'t designed a thing, he just chose a material and a size of an object, really designers then did it. Nice interview mark, bad replys

      @Peter, before you talk down on Arnold learn how to properly spell and compose a sentence.
