Thanks everyone for the suggestion ! I should says luxury Swiss watches lol. Bring car term over here is my bad .

Letís says I can do without skeleton, what are the brands I can go for ? I know Rolex / Omega is never go wrong but I decided to go for other brands .

I would want someone to notice my watch and be a ďconversation starter ď for any social gathering if there are any .

Any recommendation on where to make my purchases ?

I seen Edmw lots of Bbfa terms lol so just use it .
the below is my personal view, one man's meat can be another man's poison, so read with a pinch of salt okie

agree with cyrenic, if you want a good and conversation starter watch, the KC is your best bet.

it'll depend on the group of friends you are with, but nowadays, wearing a Rolex will at most get you a "Wah, Rolex ah, how much you buy?" kinda speech.

but with the KC, they will go one step further and ask "how to tell the time sia" and so-on and so forth.

the Zenith Skeletons are also nice, surely a conversation starter.

Any recommendation for watch regulation service? My new spb143 is about +30 second per day now. A bit too much. Need to adjust the time after every few days.
I asked uncle Goh from K2 before , but he suggest to bring back to Thongsia because he donít want to open the caseback of new watch. A bit reluctant to bring to TS because have to leave it there and come another day. Saw skywatch at chinatown have this service, anybody try there?

I donít expect it to have accuracy like cosc movement. At least +/-10 spd enough for me. Even my other 200$ 7s26 seiko 5 have better accuracy than this 6r35.

Thanks all . I am zooming down on Zenith , Hublot and Ulysse . I can top up if itís required .

Next question where do u guys hoot your watches ? Seems no one shared with me here . If itís a trade secret can pm me where you guys buy it ?

Edit : KC is tempting . It defines rebel . It embraces the dark . However is there any shop carrying it ?

I agree. or rather, if its not a popular brand and its nice, people will ask u more about it and ask to take a look.

but if you are wearing a 50k-100k+ watch, some ppl will shy/dont wanan go ask more about it ..

Sure hope he doesn't mind if his company hire ang moh and pay them double to do the same exact scope and tell him that they won't spend so much on Sinkie..

Good watch is good watch. People pay for a mixture of factors..

zenith > UN and Hublot.

go to any AD, walk in, ask for discount (15-20%), take out credit card, sign, go home. settled

buy the zenith open work defy ceramic, less than 9k
conti watch
in house
self winding
ceramic case
skeleton
comfortable rubber strap for all occassion.
