Last month, someone dashed into me and broke my beloved watch…
The glass face was smashed, although no spiky part on the outside,
I decided it’s time to get a new one. (Punch not intended)
Watch is not for measuring time
My belief is that watch is not for measuring time nowadays anymore.
Same goes for mobile phone is not actually for phone talking, and cloth is not for keeping you warm.
The reasoning is simple, if all you want is a Accurate time telling device, you are better off with a mobile or a cheap quartz watch.
Which a cheap plastic quartz watch only goes for 5 HKD or less. which can be +-1 seconds/day
Like every Accessories, watch is only for style, positioning, taste. An extension of personility…
After reading an Blog post, I decided to go for a automatic mechanical watch…
Cheap, Geeky, Clockwork, That’s all I needed.
I don’t even expect an accurate one.
A 300 HKD (30-40 USD), a cheap china manufacture watch.
I was expecting buying it cheaper, but after a month of window shopping, this is the one I got.
Despite the price, it’s perfectly what I need. A rough, yet geeky mechanical watch…
So I can claim, “Sorry, I am late. Since my watch isn’t as accurate as yours ”
So here I am, keep shaking my hand like an idiot from time to time, with a warm feeling of a clockwork device sitting on my arms…
