Roger Dubuis at Watches & Wonders 2014 HK














I had no chance to see the new release of Hommage Repeater on 30 Sep morning as it was not ready to be shown, may be today.
I love Roger Dubuis since I saw them in 2006 at Sogo Department store situated at Four Faced Buddha of Bangkok.
A lot of critics to compare Roger Dubuis with Patek Philippe, well, that is good as at least they put them as one category for comparison!
There was also a lot of people criticized Wing Chun as a feminine kind of martial arts, not until they discovered that is a superb kind of Kung Fu who could convert your foes' energy to your own!
Who knows that one days RG would be the watch trend setter? Remember they have only 20 years history, they are very young and their watches are being classified as one of the best prefered watches for new China Celebrity in Shanghai and Beijing.
There are a lot of things HK should move forward to keep up with these cities, not just economic development, city infrastructure planning, eductation, culture and the way we love our country, besides Choice of watches. This is my personal opinion only, nothing related to RG.
In my hiring interview with the candidates, more than 70% is China visiting-students who got their first and second degrees in HK, my question is where are those HK student which was used to be dominate 100% as the incomig applicants for customer service of sales engineers... now I know, as I see a lot of them in Central!

試過消費時要受氣嗎?

 買東西時層經受過氣嗎?
七五年,年青時去買Nikon FM 相機,我當時問: 可否拿那FM 相機給我看看?
但得到店員相關的回應; 這架相機要一千七百元喎!
說話好不客氣! 當然無得我睇喇。
結論: 吾想賣比我,死窮鬼!

昨天,去權記看錶後,住前一段路的一家古董錶店,看中一支派克(Parker) 帝國大廈墨水筆,叫店主拿給我看,他想了一想,打量一下小弟,(小弟弟!),他講: (這支筆五千五百元架!)
他當然沒有拿給我睇喇!

我分析,店主對我作了一個資產審查,覺得我在混吉的,或者都覺得我買吾起五千五百元的泒克筆。

今日還有部份的店主店員的服務態度真是不談也罷。
我亦聽到有一些香港勞友說到某勞力士錶店受了些氣,什麼?今天有人拿幾萬元來買錶重要受氣,吾奇呢。但據我了解,是極少數!

第一,他們怕人來講價,
第二,買的錶價不高,他可能拿不到傭金。
第三,他剛剛輸了錢! 
第四,他吾打算做了!
第五,又係見鬼!,同我一樣見窮鬼,又黎混吉!

有無想過我地身身苦苦省了十萬八萬,買件似D樣的手錶考敬自己過去一年的被老闆糟質, 折磨,拷問,凌辱,出去買隻錶都重要受氣?



Tom Ford designer' s bag US$32,500.

有人講吾會的,噢,名咀 Orpah Winfrey 都在瑞士都要受氣! 店員話: 你買吾起那手袋的!.....

我有幻想,有一大熱天跑進一錶店,女店員遞上泡有4711 的汵毛巾,幫你拭汗,另一員拿出五十年寶利茶親手沖比你飲,水是用金山山水,味清甘霖!

另一女店員前拿錶給你試戴,另一錶員同你按按背,店員說,錶先拿去用三天,滿意才回來碌卡!

I have a cream....! Sorry dream...才對!
