Happy Birthday Malaysia

Malaysia is 60 today. Selamat Merdeka. Happy National Day. 

From my understanding, Hublot in collaboration with Hour Glass is commemorating the event with the Hublot Big Bang Merdeka Edition. Only 60 pieces will be made and will be available at the Hublot Boutique in KLCC and Hour Glass Boutiques. 

The watch...

From my limited knowledge, the watch comes in at 44mm and features blue ceramic case and cobalt blue dial. The number 60 (in gold) adorn the 12 o'clock position to signify Malaysia being 60 years old. The gold stitches on the blue strap pays homage to the Cresent and Star on the Malaysian flag, the Jalur Gemilang. 

The watch retail for about MR77,400.

All the watches in the collection offer a countdown bezel.

What is interesting from the pictures is the spring bars. They look like shoulder less bars. That month mean that there are lug holes. I like. Lets see if any of the watches makes it to Taiwan.

Bracelet

This is the bracelet of a recent acquisition. As you can see, the bracelet have had some work done to it. Not very well, sadly. 


A closer view of the bracelet. Can you see what is wrong?


Yeah, the finish is wrong. The center portion of links 2 and 4 (counting across the bracelet width) should be brushed. It should be brushed, polished, brushed, polished, brushed, polished, brushed, polished and brushed.



Something I need to look into and work out. :)

More photography experiments...

Trying out iPhone depth effect....


Some more successful then others...
