...going to Bangkok/Singapore in exactly a week. Will be checking out the various watch boo-teeks when I am there. Am particularly excited about the Singapore leg of my trip.
In particular will be viewing a few Zeniths, maybe some IWCs, definitely some Dornblueth, the along with the JLC MC RdM, and various TTR 1931 editions in the flesh.
Which one am I most excited about? Here's a clue...

I was amazed by how strong the watch culture is in Singapore and how it affects everyone.

In the group I was working with, there was a Vacheron perpetual calendar, a PP Aquanaut and a couple of Rolexes. And none of these people were particularly wealthy.

Shopping seems to be the national religion.

I think the simpler PAM designs beat those hands down.

Got my first Panerai today! I was surprised at how elegant this watch is in person. Perfect for smart/business casual wear. Some quick shots:





Panerai design + JLC movement = winning combination

No, it is a MWR group buy some 5-6 years ago.   It was made, I believe, by Horoswiss (at that time).

It is a great beater, holds up very well.   Not sure what caliber is the mmovement, but it is an ETA.   I might take it apart some day... still water tight

I had it on a shark skin strap but it rot and I switched to the original bracelet.

Enjoy your trip... I just finished up this same itinerary over the holidays. The pace at which new watch boutiques pop up in s'pore is amazing. FWIW and if you didn't already know, the JLC boutique at Raffles has fairly limited inventory, so it may be worthwhile to call up Sincere or The Hour Glass in advance to give them time to bring something in if needed.
