Is Happy Day! Pleepleus Drinkmaster arrived! Laughing
avatar September 02, 2014 02:58PM
Ok, I am not usually too fond of sub clones or homages, but this one caught my eye and it has a humorous aspect to it as well. Not sure if you've ever heard of the shows Drinking Made Easy or Three Sheets, but the host, Zane Lamprey, is a comedian and gets paid to drink in lots of cool places around the world. Well, his wife had gotten him a stuffed monkey as a joke when he complained about having to drink alone one day, so he named the stuffed monkey Pleepleus and carried it around with him on the shows. Now, people took to Pleepleus and it became his "logo" to a certain extent.

So, Zane wanted to have his own watch brand - he first worked with Debaufre and they released the Drinkmaster, which is a sub clone in root beer color with a "Happy Hour" bezel and Beer Resistant to 100ft on the dial along with Happy Hour Chronometer. The Debaufre was over $400 as it was Swiss Made, but then Debaufre went away. Now, he has them made in China with Japanese Quartz movements, but they still look like a Debaufre to me - 42mm sub clone.

Anyway, I was web surfing and somehow discovered the web site of Zane Lamprey where these are on sale for $149. I had to get one.

It is actually well built with a screw down crown and caseback. The end-links on the bracelet are solid as is the entire bracelet. The bezel is well done too as are the mercedes hands. They are not flat, but domed like Rollie hands.

Specs:
• 42mm Stainless steel case
• Stainless steel adjustable bracelet with easy-release clasp
• Brown face with Brown and ocre-yellow "Happy Hour" notch
• White Luminex hands and hour indicators
• Water (and beer) resistant to 100ft
• Japanese quartz movement
• Screw-down crown with raised Pleepleus logo
• Unidirectional rotating "Happy Hour" bezel
• Date function
• Comes with black on black leather-style case with velour lining

• Set the "Happy Hour" bezel to the time you're having drinks, immediately improving your day!
• The date function lets you know how many days you've been drinking.
• And it tells time!

Here are some pics - definitely a fun watch, especially if you like drinkin'! Laughing
