The WATCH to get for 2016!

January 3, 2016 Ray 2

I heard this the other day as a suggested New Year’s resolution and thought it was quite good. Watch your Words as these normally accompany your Actions which belie your Thoughts which indelibly are part of your Character which if repeated become a Habit – good or bad. This WATCH will control your Destiny, here or in the thereafter. Easier said than done (for me at least) but I find this to be good advice and will at least think about it. In the meantime, I wish every reader a wonderful 2016!

Another one to clear. Model WAY2110.BA0910 BNIB with full guarantee from 16.12.15 from agent. This watch has never been worn and comes as a complete set with box and papers. Price is slightly negotiable as I want to clear this watch fast and so it is listed at a very, very low price of SGD1920. The list price for this watch is $2950. It will make a great gift for this festive season!

Seiko Prospex 50th Anniversary Special Edition

December 20, 2015 Ray 1

Clearing some inventory to make more space for some new additions and projects in 2016. Have this BNIB Seiko Prospex 50th Anniversary watch available below cost at S$800.00 The pictures are off machtwatch.co.id and watchyouseek and accurate to how the watch looks like ‘in the flesh’. There is not much room for negotiation as I am not in a hurry to sell and if I do not get the right offer, I will just keep the watch and see if prices go up over the longer term. Thanks for looking!

NKOTB

Had a colleague staying at Park Hotel in Alexandra and we ended up walking around the new mall beside it after dinner and stumbled across Watch Fusion on the second floor. Melvin seems to be off to a slow but steady start and I hope to be able to support him in the near future. Always happy to see someone ‘new’ on the watch scene and we wish Melvin every success in his new venture! (Can anyone tell me what NKOTB stands for?) 🙂

What Should I buy?

November 29, 2015 Ray 0

The two most common questions I get asked by readers is what watch should I buy and where should I buy it. Obviously, there is no hard and fast rule. A lot depends on your budget, where you live and your “reasons” for buying a watch. I received this email from Andrew: Hi Ray, I am looking for my first nice watch and am considering two watches. The new oyster perpetual 39mm in grey rhodium and the rolex explorer 1 39mm. Which do you think would be a better buy considering both use the same 3132 movement. I am unsure Read More

Superchrono.com at Sim Lim Square

August 23, 2015 Ray 0

Dropped in to superchrono a few days ago to get some watch straps and was pleasantly surprised to see that they have launched their own brand of watch. Good for them! Have bought a few watches, straps and accessories from them over the years and despite their “lacklustre” reputation on-line, I have always found their prices to be fair and had no issues when dealing with them. It looks like they lost the domain name to their website and you can now find them at Superchrono or this site that appears to be a WIP. Not sure why there are Read More

A surprise find…

July 27, 2015 Ray 0

After more than a year I found myself visiting my favourite watch haunts in Singapore last week. I have written about Ken’s Vintage Watch before but I have not been there in almost two years. We walked in last Friday and the place was like a market. Business seemed to be thriving. Aside from the treasure trove of new and old and not so old watches, Ken had three tubs filled with NOS and previously owned watches that he was selling at $15 each. In one tub were old Seiko’s and Citizens but in another were these NOS Golet, Parco Read More

Counterfeit Watches vs Tribute Watches

July 20, 2015 Ray 1

It was reported in the Singapore Straits Times today that the sale of counterfeit watches is on the rise. Personally I am NOT a fan of fake products, but to each their own. Counterfeit watches or fakes should not be confused with tribute watches. Tribute watches are watches that look like a particular, more expensive watch but does not try to pass itself off as one i.e. the dial does not have the name or logo of the watch brand on it and the buyer clearly knows that whilst the watch they are buying closely resembles the “real” thing, it Read More

Orient Bambino SG50

June 1, 2015 Ray 4

We all know I like Orient watches. I was at a regular watch haunt on Saturday the 23rd of May and saw these Orient SG50 watches for sale. I considered buying them but dismissed the idea as I already had the one I bought in Thailand a few months ago and I was not really in the market for a new watch. The next day, on Sunday morning, Simon, another buddy and a couple of readers of this blog sent me messages asking me about these watches. Seeing heaps on them for sale the day before I said, “don’t worry, Read More
