Product Review: Barrington Single Watch Winder

The Black Barrington Watch Winder Was As Smooth As It Is Functional

When you’re young, you want a great timepiece. But what you don’t realize is that in having a great watch, you also have to invest time maintaining it. Though they are never referenced in rap videos or on red carpets, a quality watch winder is key to extending the life of your watch and ensuring optimum performance.

Adult sensibilities aren’t sexy, but damn it, they win out if you’re doing it right. Once you drop some coin on a watch, keeping it wound is essential. A watch winder is used to keep automatic or self-winding watches running when not worn.

So, how does a watch winder from Barrington work?

Automatic watches operate by winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight moves around while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch.

The winder from Barrington operates on a basis of gentle rotation to wind watches.

NET10 Wireless #FreedForSpeed NASCAR Event Rides Us Hard, Puts Us Back Wet

martinsvile-nascar

Inadvertently, the above shirtless NASCAR fan, with a canister of what we can safely assume is “Purple Drank,” a southern beverage of choice, dangling from his loins, summed up the entire three-day NET10 Wireless NASCAR event.

NET10 — with no contracts, plans starting at $40 a month for unlimited service, and over 100,000 locations — doesn’t care about your past relationships with previous cell phone service carriers. All NET10 cares about is you and your freedom.

As America’s largest no-contract cell phone provider, they are all about keeping you #FreedForSpeed to enjoy the most sexually progressive cell phone relationship you’ve ever had in your life. #NSA.

Bullz-Eye spent three days in Charlotte, North Carolina and immersed our senses in the intricacies of both NASCAR and the #FreedForSpeed lifestyle of NET10 Wireless. It was the fastest three days we’ve ever experienced.

Product Review: Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver

braun_5

If you grew up in the 1950s when the electric shaver was a relatively new technology, a fringe lifestyle choice, how would you feel about how electrics have evolved?

Because to me, the new Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver had everything I look for; it is the net result of 60-plus years of electric shaving “growth” and adaptation.

To find out, I sat down with a 62-year-old man and we went at each other, point/counterpoint style.

62-Year-Old Man Point:

I tried a standard head-on razor early in my shaving career. My beard is thin (I’ll never be confused with my ape-like college roommate affectionately known as “Brillo-Man”) and my skin, baby soft – in a word, sensitive. My dad had a razor like that, and who doesn’t want to imitate his dad? I found his type of shaving experience painful at best. Put simply, I was scared thanks to a painful experience years ago.

34-Year-Old Man Counterpoint:

The new Braun Series 5 Hi Tech 5090cc men’s shaver with “Intelligent Clean and Charge Station” is a far cry from the brutish “Dark Ages” era of shaving in the ’50s.

I opened the packaging and found a sleek head-on razor. I fired it up immediately and it sounded sophisticated – like the hum of a BMW. When I brought it to the underside of my chin, it was outstanding. The head can be moved 10 degrees in either direction for ease of reaching those hard spots. It was effective and not difficult to manipulate. Nothing to be afraid of, sir.
62-Year-Old Man Point:

I liked how easy it was to disassemble the Braun to clean. Popping the head off for cleaning was simple and it all snapped right back into place after. I was impressed because, back in my prime, you couldn’t take an electric apart to clean it.

34-Year-Old Man Counterpoint:

I told you you’d like it, you baby gorilla!

Dare To Be Different And Suck Back A Sapporo

sapporo-premium-beer-silver-can

After three days of drinking Bud Light exclusively at Whatever, USA, I needed to re-calibrate.

What did I reach for in an attempt to regain homeostasis, aka the stability of the human body’s internal environment in response to changes in external conditions? A tall, silver, frosty can of Sapporo, the #1 Asian beer in the U.S. Think of it as the Yao Ming of beers.

Did I say Asian? I meant “awesome,” as in open up and say ahh-some. Because if you’re like me, the term “Asian beer” made me think back to gross nights consuming my weight in sake. Is there even any beer in Asia? There sure is.

Though it is technically an Asian beer, it was actually brewed by a German-trained brewer and founded in Sapporo, Japan in 1876. It made its first appearance in America in 1964, and Sapporo USA, Inc. was founded in 1984.

But who cares about the history? All you want to know is what it tastes like.

There are three kinds; Sapporo Premium, Sapporo Reserve and Sapporo Premium Light. I engorged my senses in the Premium.

Though Sapporo is technically a lager, it tastes more stout than that – at first. But what’s weird/cool/amazing, is that the aftertaste is somehow light and smooth.

The word “crisp” definitely rolled through my mind as I enjoyed my Sapporo out of its iconic silver can. There is also a hint of citrus, which may explain the bright and clear yellow color. A mix of bitterness, but with a slight sweetness is what I experienced in each mouthful.

The silver can, combined with the shape, is awesome and makes you want to drink it. Here’s the can in action:

Step away from the domestics and treat yourself to a Sapporo on game day – the NFL, the NBA or the most demanding game of all, the game of life.
