I was getting bored...

... so I made a wallpaper of my Pyrolume Prototype #12 watch. The resolution is 1600x1200.

Rolex vs Omega - second hand sweep

Just a quick video I took of the Rolex Submariner and the Omega Seamaster GMT together. Both have movements that tick at 28800 beats per hour, but is there a difference in the smoothness of the sweep? Yes, No or is the video quality not good enough? Do comment.

Another HMT in the house!

Yup, there is another HMT in the collection - the Janta. The thing about HMT watches is that they are so cheap that its almost impossible not to pick one up every time you step into a watch shop. My dad was visiting his hometown last week and as always, calls me up when he spots a shop selling HMT watches, in case I am interested. So as always, I asked him to inquire about the black Pilot and as expected, they didn't have it. The salesman then showed my dad the Janta with a red second hand and when I was asked if I want it (and although I never actually had in on my list), being so cheap, I couldn't refuse. So here it is now, enjoy the pics :)

For lack of a better background, I placed the watch on the keyboard of my laptop.
