Instagram is weird. If it's not bots liking my rare posts, it's random fitness gurus following me because I liked a powerlifting video, then unfollowing me within a few hours once my attention has been caught (I assume).

In regards to the watches,

Do the marks follow a design of a 'letter inside something else' out of tradition or something? I thought maybe it's because if they can get a mark close in likeness to something already well established it may help sales but I'm sure I'm off the mark there.

Yeah the bots are one thing. What amuses me is the persistent ones. There's a machinist in Russia with a passion for Airsoft who's liked my stuff for a few weeks now. I'm not sure what to make of that.

The marks are... old. A lot of them were only ever on the inside of the case. But it's like brand DNA - it's the lowest common denominator of brand identification.

Maybe he's just a real person who likes your real person stuff.

He is. He's awesome. He posts videos of airsoft meets with live tank fire and Soviet era helicopter gunships buzzing the troops.

That sounds incredible-could you send a link to his profile, or whatever the instagram equivalent is?
