A Time Bomb

Since I'm in a horological and Kunderagical state of mind, there's a watch thats unique to an individual. Just like gestures that define us.

My collection of watches varies from the quirkiness of the 70s, the digitized 80s and the revival of the mechanized watches, thereafter. Purists aside, there's a greater story to a watch than time and engineering feats. It defines your personality. It reflects your mood. It determines your outlook.

Leave me a comment. I'll read your blog or decipher your comments and tell you the watch that is you.

To a T!!! A simplistic elegance (with hidden complexities) to a true adventurer. A rarity to add.

Wonder what the weight's like??

Next time I'm at the Grand Palace I shall enquire of the King if they replaced the the original gift piece and bequeth it to me!

Angel Eyes said...

me... me... me... so jam cap apa am i?

Up to September 2005 I had worn a Guess watch that was a gift from a boyfriend in December 1994. It had become dull, corroded and scratched and made my wrist break-out but it never failed me until the metal strap came apart. It's still telling the time but now sits in my drawer at work. When the battery runs out it would probably be time to expire it.

sic6sense said...

noni, the Cat's Eye watch. Its your 'look'.

Now, say thank u noni...

sic6sense said...

You don't have to tell me. I'm a Timex: Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.

sic6sense said...

babulicious,the casing's platinum, weight is good on the wrist. The King's piece was probably defective due to the retrogade movement which was pretty new at the time.

noni,thanks for the 'watch'! :P

sic6sense said...

maddie, your're a difficult one to pick a watch for. I've chosen probably the sexiest watch available today because if all fails at least you can talk about the watch. :))

madnoh said...

I haven't the faintest idea how that watch you recommended is deemed "sexy". One I would pick would be this.

sic6sense said...

maddie, cheh! THAT is common. i was talking about differentiation here ie a standout. Btw, how did you link instead of publishing the add like me? *blur*

plenteh said...

That watch you gave mad is one of the 'strangest' I have ever seen!

I knew a guy once, who despite being able to afford Rolexes/Pateks up the wazoo wore a simple rubber-strap Swatch. I thought it looked good on him and suited his personality... at the time.

Perhaps it's not the watch that one wears but the wearer that 'makes' the watch. ;)

So wot's my watch then sic? :P

bex said...

Boo! What is mine?

Very easy only to link it. Just use the normal html tags that you use when you're typing a post lor!

sic6sense said...

maddie, link too complex for my simple mind. But since you were not satisfied with the first gift, here's one that's inspired by the VE DAY in 1945.

vic said...

Its always been just an item to remind me how late i am!

The watch for me is?

sic6sense said...

plenteh, definitely a Vianney Halter, a true genius. The Opus Three represents madness and fun. Learn about it, you'll appreciate the man, the watch.

bex, nvmlah. For you, a fun watch :)

sic6sense said...

vic, you're the easiest! This watch was perhaps the most difficult of all FP Journe's watches to create. The timepiece is sensitive but the end result is a piece mechanical marvel thats unrivalled.

lita said...

saya nak jugaaa!!

plenteh said...

Unique (doesn't everyone like to think they are unique? :P), rather complex, slightly zany and a blend of contradictions.

How absolutely me... if I may say so myself. ;)

(I checked out the article too. Maan.. some people really take their watches seriously, huh? Good reading tho.)

sic6sense said...

lita, a mood watch for you and it has dual time as well for your travels.

yvy said...

whoah! happening innit? :) thanks for dropping by my blog. and for the suggestion. will reply u in my blog. and since i'm here....

what watch am i? :P

lita said...

i kenot open the page. waahhhhhh!!

madnoh said...

VE day watch, kewl! How did you know I'm a WW2 buff?

Anyways, I strongly suggest using that < a href="http://.... >link < / a>" thingie (mind the spaces) for your links. It takes a bit of getting used to but it's worth it. Can't disappoint your legion of fans and groupies, can you?

sic6sense said...

lita, when copying the link,extend across to the date as some of add maybe too long. Or open the post from the side bar whre it shows the full add.

maddie, if you noticed, half the comments are mine! cant seem to get the link right! bah!

sic6sense said...

yvy, an open heart(sincerity) watch for you. :)

lita said...

erm, sic6sense, before you deleted the earlier comment, i tried the link and got *my own email*, how is that possible??!

btw the watch is luverley!! tapi takde tulis apa2 pon...

sic6sense said...

lita, i got my own mail too when i did that. (so I panicked and started deleting all my mails. LOL!) Blame madnoh!

if mood tak bagus, use the black facelah.:))

yvy said...

eeehhh!!! so nice!!!! ;) i bet you knew my fav color was maroon coz u read abt my ged right? ;) i love it!! thanks....;)

madnoh said...

Cheh.. trying to help and got blamed. Where got meaning like this? LOL!

Use this tutorial from blooger.com. Perhaps I wasn't clear in my explanation.

vic said...

The Resonance is... whoa. Nice. Very complicated (like yours truly..sigh). The only downside for me was the fact the watch needed manual winding. But then i guess some people enjoy winding watches.

By the way the links were terbalik. Read the review. Very interesting. Thanks.
