Okay, I have already received, surprisingly, A LOT of concerned messages asking why I was closing down Tempus Fugit, and I want to quickly point out that Tempus Fugit is still very much alive and well.
As mentioned, the only real thing that has changed is that I will no longer be doing reviews. I will still write about watches, the industry, etc. I will simply no longer do reviews (a week on the wrist, etc.) as I do not feel that they are anything more than marketing activities (both for the brand, and the reviewer).

In the main part of the poster an image of Charles Carter in stage costume, and then at the very bottom:
Again, I truly appreciate the kind messages, and sorry Watch Town - I'm not done yet ; )
