    "Archieluxury" Omega/Rolex rant

    I don't know whether this has been seen before here, but I found it funny. NSFW.

    Part of a series!

    What I want to know is how he is able to afford a Patek Phillipe while simultaneously being unable to put together a single meaningful sentence!

    He sure does love the word f*ckwit!

  6. #6
    I couldn't listen to his nasal whine beyond one minute thirty seconds. I can only imagine he moves in circles populated by f@@kwits just as emotionally retarded as he is.

    Listening to this guy trying to rationalise what a watch says about its owner is embarrassing. Especially since he clearly doesn't have the class to carry off the Patek he's trying to be so falsely modest about. I couldn't listen to more than a couple of minutes. What's 'Jaeger le Culltrer' anyway? What a moron.

    I've watched a few of his videos..... He seems to be quite angry and has delusions of grandeur....

    But generally he comes across as nothing more than a foul mouthed idiot, with a very high opinion of himself..

    It's a spoof.

    He's funny in a "laugh at him, not with him" way! Uninformed, over opinionated - a true product of the internet.

    There's a video of him reviewing a Lange. He pronounces it "Lan-gay" - I just couldn't get past that, as it shows an unforgivable lack of research into a product.

    He is so very shallow.
    I see that he's been banned from the forum mentioned above.

  17. #17
    He is either just having a complete laugh, or indeed as others have said a VERY over opinionated, self important fool.

    Originally I thought it was just an amusing spoof, now I fear that it is all too genuine and that he really is a foul mouthed idiot

    It seems I was middle aged when I bought my Datejust in 1984. What does that make me now, at 55? The fellow is a kent of the highest order.

    Archie's good for a laugh, though in very small doses. He does seem to love winding certain folks up, likely to an unhealthy extent. But I find it difficult to regard him seriously enough to take offence.

    In a very general sense, he's not too far off the mark in some aspects, judging from the few tirades I've listened to. Stereotypes are for a reason.

    Mix: a small grain of truth, overweening brand snobbery and materialism (and on his videos the swearing and that annoying voice) and stir! The guy is a comic genius.

    Great to see the Rolex Forum trolled so effectively. Who us? Shallow and materialistic? No way!

    Is this guy for real!?

    Having just bought a Seamaster professional 300 co axial, and watching this guy spout utter nonsense, I had to turn it off half way through I'm afraid.

    Is he really this opinionated and shallow, or is this some sort of self marketing ploy to get noticed?!

    Think I've seen a couple of his videos where he's bad mouthing Tag Heuers and the people who wear them - although I'm not a big fan of modern Tags, I did think he was a bit of an arse, even if he was doing it as a joke

    He seems to be doing alright getting an income with google ads through his youtube channel. I've seen a few of his videos before & found them quite entertaining

    I think, but I don't know, he's taking the pee out of materialistic watch snobs by parodying them. I'm a fan.

  31. #31
    Pretty sure archieluxury is a parody.

  32. #32
    I found some of it hilarious but if he is for real, I think i can safely say I wouldn't last long in his company before punching him in the face. I would take my Tag/Submariner off first though.

    The string of supportive coo nets that goes with his pathetic video is a good indicator of the quality of his work. The voice did it for me, regardless of the nonsense he was spouting.

    Indeed - what an imbecile. I see that I have ignored him over on TRF - him and one other...

    I'm guessing the 25-30 year old he caught sleeping with his wife was wearing a Seamaster...

    "Archieluxury" Omega/Rolex rant

    Does he actually post on any watch forums? He comes across as an absolute classless, snobby tool and reminds me of that Harry Enfield character that was always saying he was, "considerably richer than yow".

    He must be on a few ignore lists.

    It is grating, really grating. Especially when it's shouted at you. But it is a troll - especially the "luxury goods portfoilioi" comment on the Rolex forum, LOL :)
    ...but what do I know; I don't even like watches!

    Archie is probably the most hated man in the watch scene but for some weird reason I like the guy.

    His videos are vulgar, obnoxious, he's drunk most of the time... but he's so damn funny in his own, perverse way.

    Behind all that rant and those swear words you actually realize that he knows hell of a LOT about watches.

    I like his videos just like I like camp humor. He's a clown, yes... but in such completely shameless way that you can't help but admire that. Haha.

    PS: Check out this Omega rant. Heavy sh*t. :D

    He’s a sad failure with nothing worthwhile to say ; every year he slides further downhill. Quite depressing really.
    The only two guys I watch are Tim Mosso and Roman Sharif.

    I remember Archies stint on this forum.
    Suffice to say he didn't really blend in and I even seem to remember he got banned.

    He came across like a tool.

    From the vid: "I'm Paul Pluta, the method actor who plays Archieluxury"

    Rather amusing in its own right.

    Nearly funny but can't quite carry it off, seen the start of a couple of his videos before but never finished one, he's just too grating.

    Count how many times he says in his every video: "I have to be completely frank and honest with you". :D

    AC3 is brilliant. I’d watch him over “The Rodent”, any day.

    Not sure if he's deranged or what but I think he's really amusing, he's been about a fairly long time. He does amusing reviews of pens too.

    Can’t stand this guy. I get that there’s a big element of self parody, but his voice annoys the hell out of me, and his videos lack virtually any meaningful content. If he puts up a ten minute vid then only 2 minutes of it will be meaningful - the rest is him efffing and blinding and, annoyingly, repeating everything he’s said immediately after he’s said it - he’s like a demented parrot.

    I do watch him on occasion, you have to be in the right mood, certainly not for everyone! I'll have a look at this one later, before I decide whether or not to wear my Omega tomorrow.
