WristScan: Stuff that kept me going in 2020

The thing that affected me most in 2020, and going into 2021, is the limitations imposed on sports in Hong Kong. We went through multiple phases of gyms and swimming pools and tennis courts being shut down, and this has adverse effects on both my fitness and my psychological health. At least we stil

Horological Meandering: It's a bit too early to tell, as I have only received this watch less than 2 weeks ago

Optically, the tegiment treatment looks a bit darker than their regular, untreated submarine steel. As for scratches, I will have to wear it for a few months, and wear it during my sports activities (gym, tennis, swimming, hiking) to really be able to comment.

Horological Meandering: Missed this week's WristScan

Silly of me. I had taken a series of pictures on Friday, that I intended to post over the weekend. But I got busy on Saturday shooting some videos for my friend's Valery Youtube watches channel (UptickWatchReviews, for those who are interested), and spent Sunday hiking and then celebrating my birthd

Audemars Piguet: One of the most interesting releases from AP in a number of years

There's a lot to like here. Others have said it already, but I too would have preferred a hand wound movement, if anything to contain the watch height which, at 14.6mm, is too thick for my taste.

Audemars Piguet: I don't know for sure

But seeing how thin the case and bracelet like are, and how deep the brushed finish is, one has to think they have to use laser welding to add metal back before they refinish the watch.

Audemars Piguet: $4k would be on the high side, if replacement parts are required

But check out their service price on their website. Movement service for a RO Ultrathin: CHF 1,150 Refinishing (case + bracelet): CHF 350 Water Resistance for a RO: CHF 400 Total: CHF 1,900 which is roughly $2,100 and that's just for a routine service with no major work / replacement parts (crystal,

Audemars Piguet: I (kind of) regret not picking one of those back in 2012 when they were launched

I saw them several times at the AP shop on Orchard road, in Singapore where I was living at the time, almost pulled the trigger and then relented. There were more important things happening at that time in my life. I still have small regrets about this, as it is such a fantastic and iconic model (an

Rolex: Lazy article, titled as a clickbait

This guy tries to present his personal preferences as design flaws. Honestly, I find 90% of the articles by these specialized watch websites completely uninteresting. And, worse, most are completely cookie cutter identical, if you read any watch launch article on Hodinkee, Fratello Watch, Ablogtowat
