Picked up a pair watch for me and my wife. Sort of birthday presents for ourselves. :)
Ice Watch. Part of their older collection. I believe it is called the Ice Pure Collection. Both watches are from the Ice Pure Anthracite series. The larger watch is reference PU.AT.U.P.12 while the smaller is PU.AT.S.P.12.
I like the watches.
What do you find in the Polar regions? Ice...
OK, I will not quit my day job anytime soon.... :)
This was a surprise purchase. I have always liked the cali dial on watches as evident by the fact that I have a Tudor Date Day with cali dial and the Maranez Bangla Cali. But, while I liked the cali dial, the PAM00249 never did sing for me. Perhaps it was the price, perhaps I found it not 'balanced'.... (me being a sour grape).
Anyway, when I was first offered this watch, it never clicked. But slowly it clicked and lucky for me, the owner was still willing to part with it. And the rest, like they say, is history.... :)
The watch being cleaned. It is 6 years old. It has had a service and some parts were changed.
On its original strap. I will continue to use this.

Carl F. Bucherer pays homage to the sophisticated, elegance
of women with the new Pathos Diva. This beautiful, automatic timepiece
interplays strong, bold steel and feminine, elegant 18-karat rose gold. The
interaction of color brings a complexity to the design and the woman wearing
it. Its strong yet feminine aesthetic make it the perfect timepiece for any
occasion and a wonderful holiday gift.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the Pathos Diva is
the elaborate areole. Featuring a rose gold foreground, the intricate details
create a stunning iridescent light effect across the white dial. This
captivating impression is echoed in the design of the duotone bracelet as well
in the crown, which mirrors the aureole's delicate appearance. The Pathos Diva
is flawless, feminine, and unique. It is the manifestation of the divine aura
that dwells within each woman and – there is a Pathos for every woman. Pathos Diva variations are as diverse as snowflakes, including variations
in aureole design, single or two-toned models, and brilliant, sparkling diamond
I picked these pieces up while I was in Malacca. These, I believe, are vintage pieces. I don't know much about the pieces, but they looked interesting. Thought I 'play' with them. If I don't take a fancy to them, I will just sell them off.....
Two Orient watches and a Seiko. They are in working condition but I figure a service would not hurt.
The Seiko. I like the Seiko and I like the shape.
Basically, I am trying to find out more about these watches and will report on them soon....
Oh, sorry about the poor quality of the photographs.
60 minutes. They carry Oris, Hush Puppies, Ingersoll and Casio among others. Rather good selection of Oris watches, a few interesting Limited Edition Oris in the shop.
Fame Moments. Usual offering of Fashion brands, Seiko, A/X, DKNY, Titoni, Epos, Certina and Casio among others. The shop use to carry other brands but no longer. However the names of the brands still there.
Looks like Malacca moving up in terms of what watches are being offered. Cool.....
One of the watches that I always wanted to get but never got (until recently) was the Explorer II. I was fortunate to get one fitted with the Rolex caliber 3186, a late Z series from 2006/07.
This watch has an interesting history. The watch was produced in Switzerland (in the Rolex factory). It was shipped to Taiwan where it was sold to the first owner. Somehow the watch was sold and ended up in the USA (Florida, if I am not mistaken). It was subsequently sold to its last owner and ended up in Malaysia.
With its last owner, the watch has travelled around in Malaysia and even travelled with the owner to Australia (Queensland and Tasmania). The watch was in Australia for sometime. In between the travels, the watch was sent back to Taiwan, to Rolex for a service.
Now the watch is with me. I intend to continue to expose the watch and live up to its name, being an Explorer. So, the watch in essence would be my go to watch. So lets begin....
The watch with me in Malaysia, to be exact, in Malacca. In the back ground, one of Malaysia's National food, the Nasi Lemak.
