Hey, hey, can I just tell you something for a minute right here? Can I? Can I just tell you how much I LOVE
this Invicta Men's Speedway Collection Chronograph watch? I'm not just
talking about romantic love, or family love, or a generalized love for
life, or the love between a man and his accessories - I'm talking about
ALL OF IT, combined. That's how strongly I feel about this watch. I would die for this watch. Die. I'm not kidding.
Still doubt me? Here's how much I LOVE
this Invicta chronograph. For one thing, I can't even tell time.
Doesn't matter to me. The timeless appeal of the Invicta 9211
transcends such narrow bourgeois concepts. OK, also: I don't even have
wrists. Yeah, I have arms, and yeah, I have hands, but no wrists. Long
story. Point is, to wear this watch, I have to strap it onto my ankle,
or drape it over my ear, or wrap it around some other part of my
anatomy, you know the one I mean. And the white dial, black subdials,
and stainless steel case and bracelet STILL look fantastic!
of which, I'm also horribly allergic to stainless steel. I touch it for
a couple of seconds, and I break out in hives. Well, more like boils,
really. After a few more minutes of contact, a mixture of mucus and
blood streams out of both of my nostrils. Also, my vision is severely
impaired and I get intense vertigo. Sounds awful, I know. But I DON'T EVEN NOTICE. Why? Because I LOVE this watch! LOVE it!
Oh, yeah, and one other thing: I'm actually from the lost undersea city of Atlantis - yup, born and raised! Go, AHS Mermen!
Anyway, as long as we Atlanteans stay on the bottom of the ocean, we
live to be at least 150 or 200 years old. The dry air and lack of water
pressure on the surface means that we age, like, four or five times
faster up here. But the thing is, the Invicta 9211 is only water
resistant to depths of 200 meters. So I turned my back on the only home
I'd ever known, cut my own life short by decades, and emerged into a
world that hates and pities my kind. Frankly, I've never looked back!
And until Atlantean watchmakers can top the Invicta 9211, I never will.

could go on and on about the haunting beauty of its luminous hands, and
how much fun it is to say "screw-down crown", and the ancient secrets
of the mysterious East embodied in its Japanese quartz movement, but I
think you get the point by now. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS WATCH!

As the amateur cinematography and subsequent success of The Blair Witch Project
proved, no image can be as scary as the phantasms lurking in our
imagination. If you really wanna freak us out, hint at unspeakable
horrors and let us take it from there. Hence, this disquieting
portrait. Is it a severed head? Is it some kind of masked psychopath?
Is it a zombie, a mummy, a murderous cyborg? The terrifying answer....maybe.
Unhappy racecar drivers have known it for decades: pigeonhole Mario
Andretti at your peril. He's the only driver ever to win the Indy 500,
the Daytona 500, and the Formula One World Championship. He's won on
ovals, on road courses, on dragstrips. He's won on dirt and on
pavement. He's won races in five different decades and on five
different continents. If it's got a motor and four wheels, Mario's won
championships driving it.
So when he decided to pursue his
love for wine by founding Andretti Winery, do you think he eased off
the throttle? Not a bit. Even if winemaking isn't a competitive sport,
Mario Andretti didn't get where he is by settling for mediocre. And as
an Italian-American kid whose work took him to exotic locales all over
the world, he knows a thing or two about what good wine is.
first smart move was adding winemaker Bob Pepi to the Andretti Winery
pit crew. Bob had made a name for himself by pioneering the Sangiovese
grape at his family's Robert Pepi Winery, and for developing the
two-hearted canopy trellising system that everybody who grows Sauvignon
Blanc uses nowadays. He's the kind of guy you'd trust to select the
best grapes from Napa, Sonoma, and the Central Coast for your
Chardonnay - so that's exactly what Andretti Winery did.
result is the Andretti Winery 2005 Selections Chardonnay. The Andretti
California Selections series is based on the premise that enjoying fine
wine with every meal (OK, probably not breakfast) is a crucial part of
a rich, pleasurable life. Makes sense to us, especially after we
sniffed its bright green apple, citrus and spice aromas, with a twist
of vanilla. That slightly buttery mouth and clean, crisp finish sent us
scurrying to the fridge to see if we still had any roasted chicken or
But one thing puzzled us: why is this Indy-caliber wine available at NASCAR
prices? Turns out the 2006 Chard is revving its engine at the starting
line, and Andretti Winery needs to clear the '05 off the track. So you
can buy enough to load up the station wagon for the holidays, please
the wine snobs and the race fans alike, and still have some left over
to spray in the winner's circle.
