Genuine Leather for your Panerai

A beautiful girl needs a good looking skirts as likely as a beautiful watch needs an attractive strap.
Quality of a Strap is important as this involve the material being used, the way to select the leather,
The treatment of leather such as stone washed process, the use of fine waxed string to stitch,  and how to put apply thin layer of  treatment on the leather makes a watch strap long lasting and last tautly and stays softly on your wrist.
Many famous watch’s strap is OEM by some of the makers, Even some of the top 10 big Names don’t make their strap. So if you know the OEMs that make good strap at reason able good price is a great news for watch users, as a leather strap will be needed to be replaced after a few years for appearance, and hygienic reason.
Readers have asked me where to get some of the finery replacement leather strap. I got some and these for your choice. If you are interested, you can purchase in some of the shops in HK.
These are all 24 mm which is good for your Italian Dive watch!

My Beautiful Tissot T-Touch 1st gen.

Tissot large Ad at The One Tissot AD

I used to have three Tissot T Touch, with two of them Titanium and one stainless steel.
The one I bought in 2008 was a First generation T-touch. It got faulty with all the function gone.
I decided to go to Tissot asking for repair.

They have no more PCB circuit board for the first generation T-Touch. and I was asked to get a replacement of 2nd Generation (third generation? I m not so sure as of this moment) with a payment of HKD$2,000.

They will send me the watch from Tissot Swiss and They will scrap my beautiful Design Tissot T-touch.

I think  Tissot has a great service to those who are their supporters, I was the first few who bought the watch.

Who is the loser for Occupy Central!?

Courtesy picture of news Today

With the launch of the constitutional reform consultation, "Occupy Central" has aroused wide public concern.  "Occupy" is meant to forcibly take possession of geographic space; to forcibly take control of a territory or a position. The word "occupy" has important implications that involve the controversy over "legal" or "illegal" and whether it will affect the various areas including people's living, security state, social order, the normal operation of the financial, industrial and commercial sectors including the hotel and tourism businesses, the financial stability of our economy and local and foreign investment.

And those three main Organisers of "Occupy Central" clearly states that civil disobedience is an unlawful act. Definitely, "Occupy Central" movement and its impact on society and participants.
Roads are blocked, ambulance cannot go to certain area in case of emergency, many people (tourism Sector) has immediate pay cut due to reduced visits, Shops are not having many customers, those Watch and jewelry shop in Mongkok would be affected serious as if there is riot, they get no claims from their insurance policy , Hellenwinner, Chow Tai Fok, Chow Send, Seng, Oriental, Kwan Yan and Vintage Concept (could be better as it is not situated at Nathan Road).

He would be taking the freedom of most of the people free will to Occupy the road perform some kind of his Request for the Constitutional reform has already impacts our daily lives seriously.

Many of Watch fever readers ask, would it be an effect to the Watch sales in HK?
Yes, I believe those shops at Nathan Road have already reduced 60% of the sales I the October, I have known a few Friends on the blog has cancel or postpone his flight to HK buying Rolex. Even Some of the Rolex AD in TST has been affected, as people is sick of seeing this chaotic noisy tug of war episode on screen, I wonder why people would gather there not to join but to WATCH the protest at Mongkok. Really Mong Kok is a City of no Sleep!

Usually I help at least 5-8 people buying Rolex at AD in a month, now so far since Oct 1 , I have “0” visitor.
That is already an Index to reflect the HK Economy, I really wish that it would come to an end soon whatever way!

HK is being watched under an ambush mode by the adjacent countries and US to get a chance to fish in the financial sector. At the end, who are the loser!?

They are either lacquered or embellished with a black or a silver-plated classic “Rayon flammé de la gloire” guilloche motif, and adorned with gold applique hour markers.

Denzel Washington Wears a Suunto Core Black Military Watch in the latest movie "Equalizer"

Denzel's Suunto in "Equalizer"

Suunto's Core Black Military Watch

Denzel Washington wears an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore when he is not filming!

Denzel Washington starred in The Equalizer, a latest action thriller film that is not the same as his previous movie, He was like Charles Bronson in the 60’s but he used his Sunnto to precisely plan for his next attack like the scene that he plans to kill 5 Russian mobsters with bare hands in 16 second….but end up ..

Charles Bronson’s Death Wish is a 1974 American vigilante action film loosely based on the novel Death Wish by Brian Garfield. The film was directed by Michael Winner and stars Charles Bronson as a man who becomes a vigilante after his wife is murdered and his daughter is sexually assaulted during a home invasion. It was the first of a franchise. Young Denzel Washington acted as Alley mugger who was shot by Charles Bronson!

Can you see what Suunto model Densel Wear in the movie Eqalizer? That is Core black military!
In 1996, Suunto Oy acquired Recta SA, a Swiss compass manufacturer. Suunto Oy was in turn acquired by Amer Sports Group in 1999, which now owns both companies.
The award-winning Suunto Core made all black perfect for hunting and military/tactical applications.
Suunto Core is an ABC-watch (A=altitude, B=barometer, C=compass). Since its release in 2007 there has been more than 25 different versions of Core.

Suunto Core ALL Black Watch: composite case, black negative display, elastomer strap with black buckle, black rotating aluminum bezel.
•Altimeter with altitude log memory and altitude difference measurement
•Barometer with storm alarm and weather trend indicator
•Automatic Alti / Baro switch
•Compass with semi automatic calibration and a digital bearing
•Depth meter
•Multiple watch, date and alarm functions with dual time and countdown timer
•Sunrise/Sunset times for over 400 locations worldwide
•Digital thermometer
•Menu based user interface in English, German, French and Spanish
•Accessory straps
•User-replaceable battery

The altimeter features a range up to 9000m (29 500 ft). It is ideally suited for all activities where knowing your altitude and ascent and descent rates is essential. The Core altimeter sports an altitude difference measurement that allows you to track your progress in terms of altitude climbed. The log recorder stores all your movements in altitude between the start and stop times, so you can re-live your trip at home - view graphs of changes in altitude during your treks, find out how much you climbed, the duration of ascents and descents, average ascent and descent speed and more.

Suunto Core displays the current sea level pressure as a detailed graph, showing recording of the last 24 hours with a recording interval of 30 minutes. The weather trend indicator is a useful feature providing quick reference to check upcoming weather conditions. The storm alarm notifies you of a sudden drop in air pressure, which may be related to worsening weather conditions.

Automatic Alti/Baro switch
Suunto Core sports an Automatic Alti/Baro switch, a smart feature that senses your movement or lack thereof, switching between altimeter and barometer accordingly. When you’re climbing, it records changes in elevation. And when you stop to rest, it records changes in barometric pressure. A drop in air pressure while you’re sleeping under the stars will be recorded for what it really is: a change in barometric pressure, not altitude

The digital compass displays the cardinal or half-cardinal point and the North. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between the true North and magnetic North. You can also set it to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a chosen direction in the terrain.
The compass features a rotating bezel for traditional use (most variants), or a one-touch function that allows you to sight lock and follow a bearing.

Depth meter
Intended for snorkeling, the Suunto Core depth meter provides information on current depth and the maximum depth reached during your snorkeling dive. The maximum depth of the device is 10m (32,8 ft).

Watch functions include time, dual time, date, alarm, sports chronograph, countdown timer and predicted times for sunrise and sunset for over 400 locations worldwide.

Suunto Core is available in a range of styles and materials.
I used to wear Suunto for Hiking, it is tough and is equipped with all essential Functions for a hiker
Pressure, Temperature, Compass, Altimeter and times. And most of all it is super watch proof!

Suunto was the first to introduce:
1987 profile memory
1989 scrollable menus and PC interface
1993 backlight
1997 watch size dive computer “Suunto Spyder”
1999 reduced gradient bubble model (RGBM)
2011 watch size trimix computer “Suunto D9tx”
2013 watch sized CCR compatible dive computer “Suunto DX”
2013 the Suunto FusedTM RGBM

The electronic circuitry are now manufactured in COB form, what is direct CHIP ON Board using world most economic ASM Aluminum Wire bonder (headquarters in Singapore Yishun No.2 Avenue 7) to bond the wire between the chip to the circuit board.

This COB technology could make the package thinner, lighter and lower in cost.

A Sunnto watch price ranges from US$250 to $380 in average. Another Low cost choice for your next expeditions into the hills and jungles other than your Rolex!

Occupy Central with Peace and Love

Shop at Mongkok Closes at 6 pm on last Friday

If the Hong Kong civil disobedience action or "revolution” enter another delicate phase of protest by further Occupy Central, Causeway bay, MongKok; it is not contributive at all as it may even be dangerous for anyone including those Protesters themselves. Nobody should want to see such Protest would become some kind of major upheaval or tragic end.

Watch and Jewelry shops have been suffering as there are no major clients especially those Chow S S, Chow T F and   many 100 retails shops just in Mongkok and Yau ma Tei area.

Friends working in tour company for China Visitors had already been pay cut 50% this month as they have almost no tours in the Golden Week.

Every shop at Mongkok suffers ten thousands as rent per day without any business and they don’t know when it could be resume normal business activities again!

If such kind of program of Campaign is not being supported by most of the citizens, I doubt what is the chance to be being recognized as “Success”!

I hope that we could end it up by peaceful discussion between student union and HK Government.

Love our home, our city, our people and our country.
Hong Kong is our home!
