    The watch appreciation thread

    All this while I've mistaken the linen dial to be the tapestry dial. Could u give us a close up shot of the Geneva stripes that make up the pattern? It looks 3D.

    What do you think of the Cartier Tank Francaise? Softer lines, less in-your-face.

    And also this....MRI sagittal cut of the uterus in T2-weighted sequence. Not saying the shape's bad. On the contrary; its biomimicry.

    Reminds me of Paramecium caudatum

    U may have to one day commission a Parliment suit (or whatever they're called). On a related note, regarding the Agong's official black jacket: when they say 'gold thread', do they mean real gold?

    Quite a flamboyant cut. Worked really well unbuttoned. Do they still look like this?

    I agree in that you need to be in the (sub)consciousness of people, and to be noteworthy. And true, marketing to a narrow segment of the population probably won't work, big-picture-wise. When I was a kid and had only 3 channels to watch, Sparkmanshop was in my consciousness because it was so visible (end credits after Berita). Maybe the trick is to know what makes JT remarkable to your clients. I'm biased, but I dig your latest commercial. The background music actually works.

    Regarding the 24 episode Malay drama, and this is just conjecture, I don't think the crowd that watches these dramas are your target audience (marketing-wise). I wonder, do most of your clients have anything in common? For instance, profession, income, race, age etc.. To target a market like private (non-government) medical doctors (high income, could use a suit or two, busy job), you would probably have to come to their place of work to measure and fit. Plus, most docs don't know what's a good suit. PS: have you noticed their shoes?

    Ambiguous asian ethnicity is what you're looking for.

    That's more than adequate. If he doesn't like it, tough. Besides, a Malay-style first name does not carry the same level of informality a Mat Salleh-style or Chinese-style first name does. Only in Malaysia would one be formally addressed as "Tan Sri Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. somethin somethin". It's such a social faux-pas to correct someone on how they've under-addressed us.

    Wow! That's how holidays should be archived! Not the thousands of stills that never see the light of day. I like how the shots varied in motion and speed, as well as in stability.

    Did you use a gimbal for the shop shots? Really steady

    I wonder what waist-cinching does to the average human, in the long run. Since your lower abdomen expands when sitting, a snug pair of pants, in theory, should cause some organ compression. I see that labourers prefer overalls or even suspended jeans when working. Might the lack of a constricting belt have any benefit with regards to comfort and mobility?

    Could you explain the split back a bit more. I've noticed them in 18th century period movies, albeit in a more exaggerated form. Is there a durability downside to a split back?
