    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.

    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.

    No one seems to be impressed with RM13/kilo musang king. When I visit you in Bentong someday we are definitely getting some of that.
  7. Show us your Uniqlo, Levi's, APC, Naked & Famous, or even Armoury denim boys. Interesting find - an article about locally made using Japanese Kaihara Mill denim http://www.rawrdenim.com/2012/08/cheese-denim-malaysian-raw-jeans/

    I wonder which vintage Daytona. Saw an exotic dial example on Ellen's wrist today as I was watching a show. Commonly referred to as the "Paul Newman Daytona"

    The pitch by the designer was deficient. It does not have a strong (or any) commercial case. Worse part is the designer doesnt seem to recognise this. Its not impossible to do, but expectation management and transparency is key.

    Aye, I am a slut. I couldnt escape the alure of it. Its the pin up girl of sportswatches. Made with saturation divers in mind who go so deep that they need to breathe in a funky blend of oxygen/ nitrogen/ helium to survive. These are the guys who muck about working with oil pipelines deep underwater; a decidedly blue collar endeavour, rather than the more leisurely and recreational diving pursuits commonly associated with Submariners. At 1220m, the watch has 4 times the resistance of its Submariner cousins. So I obviously need it to help me survive my usual habitat of officesc, cafes, airports, and occasional snorkling jaunts while on vacation.

    Taking wrist shots, and in fact any shots of the watch is extremely challenging with a glossy dial. I received this in the mail today. Seller claims its early 90s, which corresponds with what the internet says based on the serial number.

    A handsome watch, has a nice rustic look to the finishing up close. But it looks really good in the shots of it in a normal day to day setting (like the one of it with your lunch). Is that a chrono pusher at 10 oclock ? ------------EDIT------- Hmm but there is no chrono sub-dial, it appears to be a seconds sub-dial.

    No - nothing that old or all that interesting. It’s a relatively modern piece. If it ever arrives and is authentic I will reveal more. Jeremy - have your cake and eat it too. Borrow the RM30,000 on a 0% interest credit card with a 24 month interest free period. Buy the watch today. RM 1,250 repayment per month over 24 months. Hire said writer for RM 2,500 per month (RM30k a year). Total additional monthly outgoing created is now RM3,750. Assuming a conservative markup of 66% per suit, at a hypothetical selling price of RM4,500 per 2 piece suit, means around RM3,000 gross margin. From RM3,000, less RM1,200 to fund other overheads, you keep around RM1,800 before depreciation, amortisation, and tax. Which means the writer would need to generate an extra 2.1 suits per month over 24 months to self-fund their salary and cost of watch. Banker logic win. *the above is for comedic purposes only and does not constitute real financial advice.

    I just made my first major (relative to my income) watch purchase. The wound in the bank account is fresh, bloody, gaping. I dont think I will make a habit of it, dropping this much money on a liability; a non-income producing item, with close to zero chance of appreciation. It was purchased through an online watch marketplace, so I hope I dont receive a copy watch from Thailand.

    Reorganisation is probably a better word. Luckily you have an international client base.

    There’s a grammatical mistake in the second paragraph too.

    Something about the BB 36mm looks off to me. Could it be that the hands are too big in relation to the dial? Or maybe the maxi sized indices? I don't know, but on paper its technically perfect, but when I see it in person, something is...missing. You should also consider the BB 36's older cousin the 1016 Rolex Explorer 1. Probably more suited for someone of your stature. This example has so much charm. Will appreciate with time for sure, jajaja. But no date, I don't think you miss it on this beautiful dial though. https://www.chrono24.co.uk/rolex/1016-vintage-explorer-i-gilt-glossy-tropical-dial-27402--id8532171.htm

    I was served a Jeremy Tok ad on instagram last week. My wife said - "oh, he changed his hair!"

    The brooks brothers button down circa 2018 made in USA - a welcome return of the original soft floppy unlined collar. The people are divided on the omission of the chest pocket, I would have preferred it, but don't mind this version.

    I think for you Jeremy - a nice PP Nautilus. Somewhat more restrained than the Royal Oak.
