The Press, the papers, newspapers, in Singapore have been kind to me ,today’s Sunday Times

I am VERY thankful for this piece. No matter what the world at large says about newspapers, even my better half and my parents, warn me about papers. But I always wonder and ask…WHY? If I am a criminal, well…I would deserve whatever perspective comes out. If one were NOT a criminal, that’s where “guilty conscience” kicks in. So..many people are struggling to make ends meet, and I come out with this? But from a focused perspective, this article today, is meant to encourgae everyone who is not doing well. Yet. Because doing well, if you look at it from a money pov, then it is ALWAYS relative…unless the bank is concerned. I felt like the POOREST man in Singapore, just 2 hours after this interview on...

“The Office” , No clinic looks like this..

“The Office” , No clinic looks like this..

This is an HDB clinic. I work in the most low and humble environments, because here…I can make a difference. But one has to come to terms with the lack of prestige and “branding”…not at all a problem for me. This is where I guess I make my life useful and I can contribute. I cannot be happy in a specialist setting, because I will not make a single iota of difference. I simply lack the drive. Here, I can enjoy coming to work…because I don’t need to. That makes ALL the difference…NO STRESS. Here, my mind is reset to “all give, no take”. Just to share a part of my most private life, as this is never seen in the web or the magazines!...

The 10th Anniversary Freak of Ulysse Nardin 2012

The 10th Anniversary Freak of Ulysse Nardin 2012

This is a “mass” of silicium. A compound that resembles freeze dried mercury. From this, the various critical elements that allow the Freak to work and to discharge it’s power into an unconventional escapement. This 2012 is the wrold’s tenth anniversary of a watch without a case. The body of gold or platinum is a part of the movement itself. The Freak’s unconventional parts require hand assembly and an ultra clean room. With the most demanding task being the assembly of the balance wheel. This bridge is super thin, and almost weightless. These silicium parts were grown in a chamber very much like a high end camera lens. Each part is programmed into existence. An era with which today, many will use, including Patek and Breguet. The...

Citizen Professional Dive watches on ECODRIVE (one of my favorites)

Greetings!!! Now, I must admit that I don’t always wear “expensive” watches. It is how relevant to design and to the era (history) of my own time, that I wish to leave behind for my children. The values. This watch for example is a GREAT watch to own. I have both the automatic (mechanical miyota movement) and this Ecodrive. They come in steel, like this one…or in titanium. The mecanical one has a removable bezel for cleaning off salt water. The attention to detail and the amazing accuracy of this and SEIKO’s springdrives are superb. But no one really buys these watches for accuracy…it is for the beautiful weight, heft, design and value. It is totally inexpensive. Google ebay for an example of prices! I have had this watch....
