John Patterson from Bathy’s sent this e-missive to let us know about their website update – I checked it out and its pretty smart (although I confess to skipping over the Flash intro).
I think the site mirrors Bathy’s bold designs and showcases them in an clean, elegant way.
Head on over and check them out..
“Quick Dispatch to the ‘Ohana……
The long-awaited, anticipated, newly-created, procrastinated, not-quite paginated, FLASH-animated, well-decorated, and with no prices too-inflated – Bathys Hawaii website is FINALLY up.
In fact at this moment it’s not even all the way up, but I thought the ‘Ohana would like to see the preview which is here:
It should go live later tonight, at which time it’ll be found here:
We’re still making adjustments over the next few weeks, but at least it’s up. Shoots.
And did anyone see our new full page ad in WatchTime featuring Hawaiian Waterman Kalani Vierra? Do you like it? Yes I know there is no giant highly-retouched shot of a Bathys watch looming in the foreground like every other ad… perhaps we are making a mistake by doing something different? As I think I mentioned, this photo was not taken as a product shot…just happened that Mario Perez had this shot of Kalani wearing his Bathys surfing at PKs.
At least it is a REAL picture of someone really wearing and using our watch.
In other fun news…mark your calenders for April 17th, 2007. – Bathys Hawaii will be having a Hawaiian-style party for everyone coming to Baselworld 2007 at Club59 in Basel, CH that night. (see this link http://www.club59.ch/).
I’ll be there, all the Bathys watches will be there (maybe even some new ones?), fun gifts, and free Mai Tai’s of course – it will be THE place to be in Basel. I personally invite each of you to come and hang out, talk story (as we say here in Hawaii), and see that a Baselworld party doesn’t have to be a stiff-ass suit-and-tie affair. We considered banning anyone who does wear a suit, but that wouldn’t be right.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
