It's Back! The HnC Wristwatch - 2 for $14!

Did you miss out on the chance to buy a limited edition Hope n' Change "Horse's Ass" wristwatch (as Seen On TV) last year? Have you been weeping bitter salt tears ever since? Well, dry your eyes - because you've got another chance!

First, a little backstory. The watches are made by a company called Artscow which is based in Hong Kong, and they periodically offer ridiculously cheap deals on custom wristwatches. And that's when I share the deal with you. I don't make a dime, I'm not involved as a middleman, and this is all just for fun.

The current deal is two (count 'em!), TWO wristwatches for just $14 including shipping by really slow tramp steamer from the other side of the world. Seriously, the shipping is s-l-o-w. But
unlike the US Postal Service, it's also free.

And the watches are, honest to gosh, quite attractive and actually keep time. The design takes Barack Obama's "Hope and Change" logo and updates it for accuracy by putting a
huge horse's ass at the center of things - just like in Washington DC! Talk about a great conversation starter!

The men's watch is hefty enough to be used as brass knuckles in particularly heated political debates (although
that would be wrong, that's for sure!) and the women's watch is elegant and tasteful and would look lovely on Sarah Palin's wrist.

Here are the ordering instructions, and
please pay attention to all of them. You can click here for the men's watch, or click here for the women's watch and add them to your cart. You can mix and match if you like, but you need to get two watches (or multiples of two - no limit) for the all-important DISCOUNT CODE to work. At checkout, enter the coupon code 214WATCHES, and you should see your total cost including shipping drop to a preposterous $14. (Offer expires 2/29/2012)

Note that I make no guarantees about the longevity of watches which cost $7 each, and that I can't help with any customer service issues (though let me hasten to add that I've purchased a lot of different items from Artscow and have always been very pleased with the quality).

Some of you may be asking, "Stilton- If you just gave away hundreds of copies of
Obama Sutra for free, and you're offering these watches at cost without making any money, what's in it for you?"

And the answer is, like George Bailey in "It's A Wonderful Life," if I've helped in a small way for
hundreds of people to flip the bird at Barack Obama, then I'm the richest man in town!

It's baaaaaaack. I almost always get looks (though not always comments) on my watch. Øbama cheerleaders pay no attention to detail, so at a glance, they think I'm wearing a pro-Øbama watch. Conservatives glance, scowl, see the detail, ask to see it more closely, laugh, and ask where they can get one. Until now, I’ve had to tell them, "Sorry, this is a limited edition collector’s piece." Now (until the end of the month) I can tell them how to get their own (and one to share)!

Thanks, Stilton.

@Chuck- Actually, the links to order the watches will still be good after the promotion is over, but the watches will cost more. Still not expensive ($10.99 for men's watch, $7.99 for women's watch, with shipping adding another $8 or so per watch), but I like to give HnC readers the best deal possible.

And by the way, my previous offer still stands: if I ever encounter someone wearing this watch, I'm buying the drinks!

I think I might send one to Ann Coulter.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Coon Tasty- That's a darn good idea! Ann is just enough of a pistol to actually wear it. Hmm...Maybe I need to order a couple dozen watches and start looking for the addresses of famous conservatives...

Emmentaler Limburger said...

Ha-ha! One for me, and one for the gent who introduced me to this site :o)

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Emmentaler- I'm touched by your spirit of generosity.

Coon Tasty said...

You HAVE to send one to Allen West!

I just followed your links and ordered a ladies and a mans watch. Did NOT enter the code, because at checkout the price was $12.98 TOTAL!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@robsan19- I have NO idea how that happened (maybe they've got another special going on today) but I'm glad you got the deal! I look forward to getting your opinion when the watches arrive (did I mention slow shipping? Hey, anticipation is half the fun!)
