    The watch appreciation thread

    I have the tool you are referencing, I believe. Like a pair of (very) expensive tweezers.

    A great looking watch, at a ridiculously insane price.

    However, I recommend a different tool if you wear watches with solid end links. But I can't make the recommendation now because there is one locally for sale that I need to buy first before I tell you guys.

    The Bergeon 7767-F. Stunningly high quality spring bar tool. It makes you look forward to changing straps.

    Some no name brand. Only RM121. My RM2.5k Rolex. With one of the earliest designs of the iconic Oyster case, made when Hans Wilsdorf was still alive. Eventually, in the 90's, Rolex abandons this beautiful, sinuous case in favour of the "super case" in an effort to keep up with challengers in the form of the AP Royal Oak, the redesigned IWC Ingenieur and others.

    The watch appreciation thread

    A temporary strap before I find a good one. The strap has not been attached yet (even if it appears that way). This is because the shop assistant looked like an idiot. He asked me four times if I'd pass him my watch. I don't see how that would be helpful. He has an IQ of maybe 80. I'm twice as smart as he is, and can see the half dozen mistakes he will make before he makes them. "Don't you want me to attach the strap for you?" he asked. I said, please hand me a spring bar tool, I'll do it myself. He rummaged around for one, but it was obvious to me he has no clue what that is. I found a picture of one on Google. He says he doesn't have that tool. So, I'll attach the strap tonight at home with my luxury Bergeon spring bar tool. How can a watch shop not have one? They dig at the spring bar with screwdrivers, making lots of scratches.

    My choice would be a 1016

    You see now just how uber the 16610 is. In its time, it was like the Big Bang/RO Offshore of its age.

    They put me up in a corner office. I've not been in an office in ages. Waiting for two of them on delayed flights. Measured the rest already. Can't wait to be done here so I can go buy a strap for my 6480.

    In a Thai restaurant having something to eat. Today, I really have to slog. Measuring close to 30 people --- staff of a pharmaceutical company. Upside is, well, you know what the upside is. (Another Rolex)

    Jajaja. A very handsome gateway watch indeed. I think the 34mm suits you well, you could even do a 32mm I reckon. This is probably closer to the watch which summited Everest on the wrists of Tenzing/Hillary compared to the “explorer” tagged models. Perhaps if you ever fancy a sports model, you can look into Rolex bubblebacks. Or a Tudor mini sub , both are within this size range. But I think for someone at the pinnacle of their craft such as yourself - a Gold Rolex, or a Rolex Pre-Daytona chrono with a Valjoux 72 movement. Speaks of a man who only needs to answer to himself.

    Market price seems to be RM7k. I paid RM2500. The seller said he bought it decades ago from a friend who needed money. He paid about RM1k for it. He's selling it because he finds himself no longer wearing it because of how conspicuously small it is in an era of 42mm watches.

    Ref. 6480. 34mm. Hand winding. With an Oyster case i.e. screw in back and screw down crown. Dates from the 1950's. Crumbly lume that no longer functions as lume, case polished 5X, and had five prior owners four of whom are dead. "6" are you happy for me?

    Finally! Did you buy a 29mm model?

    The watch appreciation thread

    Today, I bought a Rolex. But, it's not a model you'd expect me to buy. Neither did I expect to buy this model. I bought it because I'd be retarded not to.

    The suiting thread

    A couple weeks ago, I was approached by the guy behind a secular choir group by the name of The Canticle Singers about a possible sponsorship. When I took the call, I was half asleep on my bed. I said, sure, mail me the details. This group spends a whole year preparing for one performance. They perform once a year. All unpaid volunteers. They've been doing it since 1992 (obviously with a changing composition since people are coming and leaving). The same guy is behind it since the beginning. He tells me it is increasingly difficult to find singers. So, anyway, yesterday, I measured all the male performers. I just got the idea that they should allow me to use a 1 to 2 minute section of their performance as the JT official soundtrack. They don't really publish videos of their performance because they do not compose their own songs. Anyway, I am generally keen to be more involved with the performing arts.

    Somebody needs to be fired for this. Probably one of the dispatch boys.

    The suiting thread

    We shot a series in this Bahnhof/Gare, but the lighting conditions were such that, I didn't really know how to handle them. I will be sneding some from this series to an editor in Hyderabad to see if he can make them usable.
