Hong Kong Watch & Clock Exhibition 2005

I’m typing this entry from the business lounge of an airport with half hour to spare before I board my flight to Hong Kong for the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Exhibition (the second largest watch exhibition even though it isn’t as prolific as the Basel one), which means I’ll covering this year’s exhibition. Stay tuned.

Basel Blues

So my physiatrist stares at me, twirls his pen and finally says something. “You’re telling me that you went on this trip to .. “ “Basel” “Yes, that, … the biggest watch exhibition and you say that you slept ate and drank watches non-stop for five days… and when you got back you were so overwhelmed with writing about it that you didn’t bother… in fact you pretty much stopped writing regularly and the post still hangs in your head haunting you…” “Yeah” “Did I get it all?” “Yea” “And you want me to help you..?” “Get over the guilt…

We Heart Nooka

Nooka’s Matthew Waldman was nice enough to send in a model of his watch. While we hope this becomes the norm around here, what I didn’t expect, was to fall in love with it. I’ve never been very big on Digital before, but you will currently find the Nooka adorning my left wrist, while the right sports my beloved Lange. I know its strange to wear two watches, but eccentric editors of obsessive wrist watch websites do need to stand out while rigourously testing them for future writeups. Also, Mister/Miss Reader, We’re toying with the idea of having a small…

Sensory Impact down

As is customary by now, Sensory Impact is down yet again this week due to lack of bandwidth, and the hosting service just doesn’t have the system in place to respond to it. UPDATE: This is very infuriating. I’ve been sending a ton of emails every day to our hosting service, and haven’t heard a word from them. Looks like the site might be down for a whole week. UPDATE: The site is back up, but only because its a new month.

Announcement: Show Coverage

If you’re mildly interested in watches, you might have heard about Basel, the premier show for watches, well, this is the other big one – The Hong Kong Watch & Clock Exhibition with up to 800 exhibitors from 15 countries or regions and we’ll be there to cover it blow by blow. Its going to be from September 1st to the 5th so stay tuned for daily reports.

Edtior’s Note: Permalinks changed

I’ve changed the permalinks on the site. So instead of every page ending in .html, it won’t need one. I had initially done it to help with the transition from our old blogger setup, however, because of it the archives were inaccessible. So, please update your links if you were previously linking to a particular post.

Editor’s Note: Guardian Blog Pick and other news

We just got picked by UK’s The Guardian as their blog of the week. Jane Perrone of the Guardian writes – “This is a first for me: a blog about watches. As a fan of horology (current watch: 1960s Tressa automatic bought on eBay) this blog could keep me entertained for hours. My only request? More on vintage timepieces, please.” Well Jane, We don’t intend to disappoint so watch this space. Other than that, we have some topics we’ll be writing about in the future and if you think you have something to say, do email us: 1. The Future…
