Watch exchange

I am in the process of exchanging Rolex 6048, 6444, 6298 and Rolex Aqua for a Patek 3445 ....it has been a difficult choice as funds are limited....




The PP 3445 is one of the classic watch that has a timeless elegance feel. It has a simple look and a very modest feel with just an automatic movement with date. Nevertheless, it is one of the most comfortable watch to wear and it is a true gentleman's watch.




Even if the 3445 stands beside a vintage 1655, it has managed to show its class..

Rolex sports series

My 1019 was an accidental find as I was lucky to find it in good condition..




The Tudor was part of the "package" deal where I bought a couples of bubbleback and it was one if the item that I must get together with the rest... I didn't expect the prices of mint Tudor to appreciate so much that it has become a collectable now...




Two fully restored 1655...

Mint condition watch

There are some collectors who love used and faded bezel, dials ... My preference is real old school ..meaning collecting watch in pristine condition. Currently, there are still spare parts for these vintage watches from the 1970s. My guess is, once these spare parts have all been used up, Rolex center may stop servicing these watches.. So, if you have a used Rolex, my advice is to quickly send them to Rolex for restoration... The trend for battle worn watches may be just a fad... Have you seen antique ming or Ching dynasty vase in terrible condition appreciating in values?

I have been wearing the 6542 for several days and the accuracy is unbelievable or a 1950s watch. The 6294 has just returned from service and the photos shows both the sports and dress watches from the 50s era.. Life is good!

Mk 1-5

There are many collectors who are very particular of the mk 1 or 5 versions of the watch. There are also some who love the aged looked and faded bezel and dials etc. For me, my preference is always been to find the watch in as pristine condition as possible. Mint condition watches is the best and all dials wil have to be original. Whether it is version 1' 2 or 5' is ok for me...

Changing of hobbies

I used to own many vintage hifi gears when I first came to HK. With the constant need to move apartment, I have since sold off most of my gear and only keep one simple set for listening.


In return, I have focussed on collecting watches instead..which is easier to keep owing to the small sizes..
