By |November 14th, 2016|Blog, Watch Care|

This watch, just like Michael Jackson, needs no further introduction. It’s one of the evergreen Japan Domestic Model (JDM) Dive Watches by Seiko. She is extremely popular in Singapore and all around the world, and many reviews are available online. I will do my very best to give an objective point of view on this [...]

My collection of Junkers has been quietly growing. Dangerously, quietly growing if I may add.

She’s paying tribute to a classic [...]

Folks who love their watches complicated, you can skip to the next page now. I am about to review a simplistic Bauhaus-style watch. She’s clean. She’s sterile. She just wants to tell you the time accurately. She may be boring to some, but not to me. I am sucker for Bauhaus watches. Introducing you, the [...]

Review: Dievas Vintage 3646

By |October 24th, 2016|Blog, Watch Care|

I got this watch 6 years ago as a gift. A precious gift from my ex-girlfriend-now-wife on my 30th Birthday. Just like how all my heavy metal music friends commented, “If you wish to start listening to Heavy Metal, you got to go back old-school.”. We stand firm on this statement. It goes the same [...]

Word cannot express my love for PVD watches.....Really Can't. When I first learnt about this watch, it was at the height of the 4R Calibre craze. I paid a small (but reasonable) premium for this piece and never once I thought of selling or flipping her. Introducing you the SSA051K1, Seiko Stealth Military running on [...]

Review: Junkers Bauhaus Power Reserve 6060-5

By |September 27th, 2016|Blog, Watch Care|

One of the evergreen comment (or warning, or advice) given to me is "Horology is an expensive hobby." Heard that before? I hear that all the time. I mean all the time. But hey, guess what? So is Table-Tennis, so is Golf, so isCollecting Toys and Stamps.. The point is: every hobby could potentially be [...]
