    I've been trying to buy a Hodinkee watch roll but they've been out of stock for a while, I was also concerned about a few of them getting wet in Singapore's rain so I went with the plastic ;)

    I confess to using regular leather watch rolls. They're easier to stuff into the safe, and easy to take watches in and out of. Sadly they're a B-minus aesthetically, and watches with straps and deployants don't fit in too well :(

    I got my mum to make me a watch roll. Bigger than standard, so everything goes in nicely. I considered it fair payment for 20 years IT support...

    They're around $50 now, and you can get larger 4 and 8 watch cases too.

    Omega Forum Singapore 2014 Gathering report:

    On February 8th 2014, four Omega forum members (well 3 members and a moderator ;)) got together in Singapore to meet and share watches collection passion, especially in Omega vintage.
    Our host, NT931 and Gavin kindly arranged a very nice Italian restaurant at Regent Hotel for gathering place.

    A1 GTG feb 2014 place basilico regent hotel singapore (800x600).jpg

    NT931 came first, I joined him at 12:15. We reintroduce each other and start the watch talking
    First topic our own SMP titanium electric blue and Great White
    A2 GTG 2 seamaster pro  (800x506).jpg

    Then moving to NT931 nice collection: Seamaster sparkle and Omega Art deco
    A7 SM sparkle NT931 (800x539).jpg

    A6 art deco nt931 (800x484).jpg


    Soon our moderator, dsio came with bad news. He was just hit by a notorious taxi who try to overtake a line. His backpack with a Mac and his watches collection was thrown away and dropped to the ground (Nooooo......are they allright?.....gladly, yes they are). His ankle also got hurt.
    Fortunately there were temporary pain killer available: more nice vintage watches :D

    Soon Gavin joined the gang

    The first group in show is golden dressy watches.

    B2 Golden dressy v1 (800x496).jpg

    During this photo shoot, an attractive lady from our next table coming to peek and say hello. She openly admire ONLY these golden dressy watches. I have strong urge to move to her table with all these golden watches :p, until I realize I was not the one she targeted (well from their table they can only see my back). I am also sure she wasn't into NT931,too because his wed ring was big and clear enough to be seen from 2 tables away :D . So either Gavin or dsio, but boy, they missed the opportunity :rolleyes:.

    Very beautiful 18k PG Cal 320 chronograph

    During the trip to Jakarta, I visited an Omega boutique in Changi Airport Terminal 1.
    F1 Omega boutique at changi (800x618).jpg

    I was looking to try speedy DSOM, which unfortunately they didn't carry. There are several other limited edition watches such as Speedy Meteorite, Speedy Alaska and an Omega museum collection no 9 in WG, which is very nice.
