I think SG is less on the ball in terms of watch game compared to Hk.. by a pretty wide margin too.

Hk every morning on the MTR to central (their cbd) in every train carriage there are at least a few rolexes.. mostly black subc and sub date.. yesterday alone i noticed two patek wearing neighbors at my service apartment lobby.. both 5712s... amazing.. then again, it was the first time every I saw anything from the nautilus range on someones wrist here after two years...
HK very near Shenzhen if you know what i mean.

Ha, not the rich kids hypebeast type of wear......those dont mean **** no matter locally or overseas......I dont own a single pair of Yeezy, ever.
high end designer clothes don't appeal to me.

i prefer my japanese stuff. also i don't own any yeezy. i wear vans/converse etc

By the way, that aged leather strap looks out of place for a white collar environment to me. Are you blue collar or a business owner?
Incidentally my boss today kan me, said white collar worker must wear white color watch to matchy matchy our white collar station in life... so i went to buy this

u think he will kan me again cos of the contrast anot ah. if not hor, can wear on friday. cos on our bi annual casual fridays contrast collars are allowed as long as we stick to the duller tones..

Was banned from entering because my Goyard briefcase wasn't white collar enough.
You mean that place also has a sign dis-encouraging monogrammed leather articles?

The one at my office is right next to the sign that advises us not to get our namecards water-marked AND to only use standard fonts instead of the fancy stuff.

Absolutely confounding, am i right!

thinking of building my own mechanical watch, any tips for sourcing for the raw materials? including dial, straps, etc.

appreciate if anyone who has tried it before can connect with me as well. thanks!!
good luck. you can source from ebay
