Swiss Watch Winder



What are the essential design concept of a watch winder?

There should have no magnetic interference onto the watch, not to magnetizing your watch.

The motion of the winding should not be jerking motion that add on wear and tear on to the watch rotor system.

There more important is the gripping of the watch is good secure enough not to drop the watch!

This is a  NOS Swiss made Bergeon No. 5803 watch winder that one Swiss firm trade with me for watches, besides the above feature, it is super quiet, yes, a Swiss AC motor.

If is on sales now to those people who need a real professional watch winder or nothing.

Rolex Submariner ref 116610LV , the "Hulk"


Submariner “Hulk” ref 116610LV
The Rolex Submariner’s robust and functional design swiftly became iconic diving watch. With their subtly redesigned Oyster case, distinctive dial with Maxi luminescent hour markers, graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel and solid link Oyster bracelet, super accurate movement that makes some “tourbillon” shameful, the latest generation Submariner and Submariner Date are firmly in line with the original model launched in 1953.                                                                             
The Rolex Submariner Date reference 116610LV, aka "Hulk," is the Rolex Submariner we all know and love but with a green ceramic bezel and green dial. It commands a price premium (SPR HK$68,100) over the more traditional black ceramic bezel and matching black dial “classic” Rolex Submariner 116610LN reference model (SPR HK$63,900).
There are always dissenters over the Hulk, over the years, I love using Hulk though I always hear people, dislikes “Green”, Green is not my colour, Too green! It is a lady’s watch, no one wears green watch, not a classic….Someone says’ Like Kermit 16610LV (50th anniversary) more.
At the time, this person was wearing a Rolex with a vintage Submariner 1680 with a ripe patina dial on NATO strap, so they weren’t exactly hostile to the brand. I believe their reasoning was that in their opinion wearing the green-dialed Rolex Submariner 116610LV came across to him as though someone was trying to stand out or be unique!
As much as I love wearing a black Rolex Submariner black, it doesn’t tell anyone who knows about watches anything about me. A downside of the most popular ones is that they force you to blend in.
Or, if you want to present something more distinctive about yourself but don’t want to be “out there,” consider the color green.
Well, I like blue as much as many of the watch makers, so “Blue” is the standard brand colour, so as blue PP 5711, AP 15400, AP15202, is all boutique item.  Green is Rolex’s iconic colour, it represents Ocean, its represents caring, environmental friendly, peace and tranquility.
To get a Hulk is nothing easy, I sold Hulk likely about ten pieces in the past two years. Starting $65,000, price keeps going up to $69,000, $71,000, $73,000, $74,000, now my next piece is $86,000! 
It is not a good news, as price of Hulk from gray dealer is keeping increasing… that is a sign that it will be one day I cannot afford to buy one… So it is time for me to keep one for myself first.
Rolex is gold, and gold is not Rolex.

Thanks for all the reader and fans of HK Watch Fever


This is the 8th years I have been blogging on Watches… as a matter of fact, I should say thank you for those who has been supporting this Blog whoever in the past few years…

I still remember when  I saw the first 100th page views I was so happy and eager to know who he is…

Now it had hit 2.7M page views and had 2,341 comments on the published 2,255 posts, all my post was done by me for last year I off loaded a few tenth posts to my partner in HK Jason… He is busy too so I have to pick up myself in this year.

I started to find I have turned this watch collection hobby into by side line, or now I should say my main line as I am still holding a position in the World No,1 top semiconductor company located an office in Alabang, whereby I am a country manager.. That is why I hold a Philippine Phone number 639989811111.

Over these few years and more precisely started 2014, I have been selling watching to the Philippines fans on my blog, and gradually I am selling more than just Rolex, JLC, AP, PP, Zenith, Paneria...etc…

I am glad that Now I am not just selling, also provide service for evaluation, checks and trading watch from the Philippines. I also buy from you!

People Who have bought from me knows my strategy, customer base instead of Profit base orientated.

So I even lost 2 thousand dollar whereby I committee a price on D-blue. And I made no money on a Batman to one doctor in a Hospital. But it is fine as he loves to buy from me more,, and I sold him a Hulk recently…

Now, I start to feel bad as I will be retiring from this company soon and I may not able to fly over so frequently weekly like before… anyway, I still can fly over to talk, drink, eat and or trade watches with you…say on weekend. Also I have a plan to select a close partner to open a Watch store in Philippines.

 

Thanks for the who had supported me, trusted me… for those who never seen me but send me money wire HK$180,000… and not just once… This things will not happen for HK people i stead. But I think because you have been watching me over these years,

Thanks for all of your, CEO of Bank, Lawyers, congressman, Mayors, business man, doctors, teachers, hotel GM, young enthusiast, OL, models, watch collectors, watch dealer, IT manager, Advertisers, Special thanks to Alex at Greenbelt 1;  it is nice to know people who is really a watch guru.

Thanks for the support and trust!

 

PS my face book account name was forced to changed from “HK snob” to “Paul Ip” by fb, so you can add me to “Paul Ip” that is my real name.


Also I have another fb account " Rolex HK Snob"

Also my IG is “ HK_Rolex_Fever”

Seeing you soon.

Rolex Submariner ref 116610LV Hulk and Submariner Black Market trend.





Hulk is definitely the hottest topics of the 2nd half of the year.

The dealer price is keeping increased from $69,000, $70,000, $71,800, $74,000, and now the latest dealer price is HK$84,000 but no stock available! No Stock why? as everyone is keeping stock and wait to see the price rise.

Selling price is now HK$89,000 (30% higher than List Price

$68,100!)

This is the magic Green of Hulk, if really this model will be discontinued by Q1 2018, the selling price will be HK$120,000 or more closing to the price of Daytona.

This one is a NOS dated 2014, 100% new, and I think I have no choice to keep it.

If you encountered something like new or new at HK$84,000, my suggestion BUY!

As I believe Rolex will not produce this colour combination on Submariner anymore!

How about Submariner ref 116610LN, soon facing the same situation to be discontinued and launch a new series 126610LN Single Red! wait and see, Single Red? My dream only, watch and see.

If you see Submariner ref 116610LN, if price is below HK$63,900 , I suggest BUY!

Vacheron Constantin, likely second best to no others.


1899 Minute repeater with day and date via aperture at 12

Mankind’s first experience with time is the change of night from daylight, and night changes into Sun rises, sun starts to give heat and light and shines across the sky, and after while, it starts to repeats and  darkness falling onto our place where we live. The seasons passes one and after the others, gradually mankind starts to realize that the rhythm of the changes of time has a consistence, it changes periodically. And men started to record it as day, hour, minutes and seconds, and how the moon phase changed by itself with regulation under the equation.The Moon's phase (synodic) cycle repeats on average every 29.53 days. Therefore, the timing of the Moon's phases shifts by an average of almost one day for each successive month. (Lunar year=354 days.)

The modern man, however thinks of how to use p their time wisely, or sparingly, and Men struggle that which he really a part of. If harmony is anything, it is the world in steps with itself, Man seeks ways to impose order, not realizing there is an order to things already. He seeks to capture time, not really knowing that time cannot be captured at all.

Instead of steal one second from time, or to stop the time to go away, we had at least well maintain the record of it.

It may be most obvious in something like a moon phase display, particularly for Chinese with Buddha religions who has habit of a vegetarian day on the lunar first and 15th of the month…

A perpetual calendar is an interesting complication because you don’t receive instant gratification. With a minute repeater all you need to do is activate the trigger to hear if it works perfectly, with the tourbillon you see it immediately. With the perpetual calendar you need to be patient and project yourself into time...into a 4 year cycle.” Says Chrystian Lefrancois, one of Vacheron Constantin’s master watchmakers.

Back into 1790, Vacheron Constantin’s had its 1st calendar clock with a stunning engraved dial and indication of day and date.

In Ancient days, we need also to have a standard for event to be recorded, time, which is not less important than it is Today,  if we were men at that time, we could plant our crops whereby we need to know when the seeds should be scattered, when the time we should irrigate and when we should gathering for an happy harvest, moving forwards to the sways of seasons. When our aircrafts is so sophisticated with unmanned landing and take off, while our mankind also produces so many precise timepiece used to record time. With the celestial mechanical of Vacheron Constantin, we can see what such machine can be.

Vacheron Constantin is my favourite watch maker amongst all. I love its Maltese cross logo.

I have a few pieces in my collection, an Onyx white gold men’s dress watch, an Overseas chronograph, lady solid gold manual winding, a VC ultra thin men’s dress watch, and the VC 222.
