"its the one that says bad mf..."

apologies to more sensitive viewers but the 'pulp fiction' line just had to be used in reference to this JLC bada$$ dive watch...

JLC's Master Compressor Diving Pro Geographic Navy Seals.... damn thats a mouthful... limited edition of 300 in pink gold... I LIKE IT!
Photobucket

but lets begin this tale uhm... at the beginning... i got a msg for me to mosey on down to forlino over at One Fullerton... billboards guided me to...
Photobucket

JLC MECCA !!!

Photobucket

the raphmeister was in da house and imbibing...
Photobucket

he was liking what he saw on display... this marc newson atmos is da BOMB! (not literally yuh, it aint gonna blow up spraying shards of glass in different directions jus in case u were confused :)
Photobucket

and the grail... the ultimate piece from the grand maison for moi...
the gyrotourbillon two... lost... entranced...
Photobucket

in its dance... come home to papa...
Photobucket

a smart looking master compressor extreme world alarm in blue was asking for some attention too...
Photobucket

and dis bada$$ beauty too...
Photobucket

ok i m no fan of the design on this... just my humble and personal opinion... it somehow reminds me of hannibal lecter in silence of the lambs with the muzzle thing across his face... dun ask me to "rationalise" why [sorry in joke for the folks on my table]
Photobucket

me likey this though... jlc reverso duo date... the dark side appeals more to me...
Photobucket

the light side is nice...Photobucket

but one shouldn't underestimate the power of the dark side... uhm ok... i mean the dark dial of the duodate...
Photobucket

other new reversos were out to play as well... nice...
Photobucket

chee hong trying to see if he could bust the mc tourbillon... but it was made of hardy stuff...
Photobucket

the mad beast... u can almost hear a bull snorting in the distance...
Photobucket

classy and nice for the ladies... (doh! i forgot to take pics of the lady squadras and duettos... those were very nice too)
Photobucket

and finally with some of the fine folks from jlc and joe.. from left to right it would be garina, the raphmeister, xavier and joe...
Photobucket

alethea and raphmeister... chatting about how fine jlc watches are...
Photobucket

and to end off, i would like to thank Jaw from Horomundi, the fine team at JLC from Xavier, Garina and Alethea to the retail staff at the boutique... it was a fun night for me.

good food at a nice place, good company (great dinner pals vernon, kok choon, harry, jeff, russell, chee hong, didi etc) and good catchups with mates i haven't seen in a bit (CH and Linda, Ben and Keat Yi, Ben and Yvonne etc) a fine time :)

now to save up for that gyro 2... damn...

in love with rose...

i used to think i would always wear white metal cased watches, meaning steel, white gold, platinum etc... not anymore it seems :) the 2 watches below have seen the most wrist time the past few weeks and here are some pics to try and explain why...

just pure good looking every which way u turn it ;)
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

double takes are common... lingering gazes too...(all from me yuh i dun notice wat others r doing when i have this on :) i love getting my FREAK ON!
Photobucket

Photobucket

note to self: gotta try and take some decent macros of this someday...
Photobucket

riveting...
Photobucket

lastly, it must be said that my steel and plat watches do make a solid case for wrist time too...(all bad puns intended ;) one of them even has some rose gold in the movement

yes i am still loving my cal 321 speedmaster

as noted in my post below... baselworld came out with a new speedy to commemorate the 40th year of the moon landing... Speedmaster Apollo 11 “40th Anniversary” watches...

A special limited edition of 69 pieces in platinum will be available at the Omega Boutique in New York City
Photobucket

for me... i am still loving this one... 145.012... nice little sea monster ;)
Photobucket

861 or variants, co-axial etc etc etc... this is still the original and what they tested for space flight
Photobucket

catching some rays as it reenters earth orbit from its moon mission ;)
Photobucket

oh yes... am still loving this loads :) only question is why do people buy the new limited edition ones (of which there are many commemorating this that and the other) when they can have something horologically significant like this for about the same $$$
