I bought a Maserati Trofeo polo shirt and I felt such dick wearing it in the QP I just use it for bed now.

Same with a watch I recon for me. I fancy the new Apple Watch tho - had the previous one but gave it away, this new one has arrhythmia detection Apple said, since I suffer from that it's a good excuse. But I'd like to see it in action first. I don't mean by testing while having some sort of self induced attack, just an assurance from the 17 year old geek in the Apple Store will do....

It will almost certainly over trigger for you.

I tend to agree, I normally hate anything branded and even more branded to something owned (a colleague has a merc so must have matching rain coat, watch , brolly etc. I cringe) but there is something more subtle to me with the Maserati brand (ok so I rule out the trainers :p) didn’t buy it anyways due to the points mentioned ( even worse whe I don’t have one, may as well buy a Ferrari cap :rolleyes:)

I've polo shirt. I wear it occasionally.

On the watch the ECG functionality is only enabled in the US. It could be years before its enabled in the UK as Apple need to get it approved as a medical device which requires doing specific trials. They aren't allowed to use the result of the trials they used for FDA approval in the US. So although it may work, we can't have it over here yet.

A year ago, late in the evening, I stumbled past the QVC TV channel and these were being touted and sold on there.

The only Maserati branded gear I have is a couple of baseball caps. And they're to protect my bonce from the sun. Especially as I am nearer than most. Catman being one exception, Phil (Contigo) being the other.

Just got the new Apple Watch 4, and as I have an Apple Developer account, and Xcode CI server etc, I might knock up a Maserati Trident Watch Face for it. And a Ferrari, Lamborghini and maybe others.

Probably get knocked back by Apple but WGAS......

You can't have a Ferrari then , you'll need the watch,hat,T shirt ,jacket and an umbrella in case it rains , at least that seems to be the uniform at every car show I've been to

Had a look at these when I was in Italy last. As with most stuff like didn't think they were worth the pennies. Some of the designs weren't nice and a bit tacky.

I was given a Maserati watch as a present, and I dont wear it much, its a really lovely watch, but i am afraid to wear it out or damage it! I also have a few T-shirts and a baseball cap. I suspect we all do this at some point where you see a nice branded T-Shirt/hat/watch and then once you are home and put it on, you think, ah right, well I will just keep it as a souveneir! I bought a maserati branded bag that i keep my tools and spares in the boot, and its been really great.

I had my eyes tested a while back and the optician had a maserati watch on... it was a bit much, but each to their own... I casually mentioned it and asked if he had one... to which he told me he'd love one and that's as close as he was likely to get!
I'm not sure he believed it when I mentioned that I had one! Especially as I tend to look like I've just crawled out of a skip!

Like most branded stuff... I wouldn't pay for it, but I'd happily take it as a promo freebie, then never wear it! I tend to be a little more subtle... it makes more of an impact then!
