I like watches… but most of the ones I like, I can’t afford… so are many others things in life…
我喜歡錶, 但是大部分我看上的, 我都買不起…

Fortunately, I have a semi-decent job, so it keeps me needs fulfilled and desires usually satisfied. I have been looking for watch for quite a while now. A watch, my dream watch if you may, that’ll keep me happy for years. I have been buying watches, but I wanted something different, something unique, something not a lot of people have (which usually translate to really really expensive). Rolex, IWC, Breitling, Panerai, Bell & Ross, and many others are all on my list… but I only have two wrists… then again, not like that’s ever stopped me before… hahaha~
不過還算幸運的是, 我的工作還算過得去, 所以還可以滿足我的需要以及我大部分的欲望… (購買慾望) 雖然我還是一直有在買錶, 但是其實我一直再找一支錶, 一直夢想中的錶, 一隻特別的, 獨特的, 沒有什麼人有的錶 (不過通常這也代表了價位會很恐怖). 什麼勞力士, IWC, 佩納海, 一堆錶都在我的名單上, 但是我一次也只能帶一隻…  不過這個爛理由從來也沒有阻止我買過其他的東西…

Anyway, so recently, I looked at a Chopard, it’s nice, it’s good looking, price is ok, but it’s size… being used to my 50mm Invicta… anything under 45mm looked so small… Oh, side note, today the owner showed me a pamphlet/catalogue of this new watch company, TW Steel, specialized in big ass watches~ Quartz movement, affordable, and stylish~ OK, so back to my endless search of a watch… I also found this limited edition watch that I’ve been looking for in the past 4 years in a antique watch shop, I went with cash in hand, but again… I didn’t like the way it looked on my wrist…
最近我看上了一隻蕭邦的錶, 真得很漂亮, 價格也還OK, 但是大錶帶習慣了… 45mm以下的我都嫌小… 喔, 今天老闆給我看了一家新的錶的公司的型錄, TW Steel, 全部都是大錶徑的石英錶, 而且價格也很漂亮, 喜歡大錶的人可以參考參考. 好, 回到我的尋錶之路… 前一陣子我也找到了一隻我找了很久很久的限量錶, 我錢都帶去了, 不過一戴到我的手上… 我就還是把他留給其他有緣人好了…

So the search continues…

Last night, went to the night market with my mom to get my Citizen fixed, buy cat food, and have some dinner. After getting everything done, and got a electric mosquito swatter, I went back to the watch shop to see if they have this one particular watch I wanted to see. And after the owner making some phone calls, some discussions and to make a long story short… Here it is…
昨天晚上我跟我老母去夜市買東西吃東西還有修我的一隻Citizen. 等我們東西都買完了, 還買了一隻充電式的電蚊拍, 我又跑回錶店, 問老闆他們有沒有一隻新出的限量款… 老闆打了個電話, 然後跟我研究了一下… 看圖八…

This is my second ORIS
P1020785
這是我的第二支ORIS

The owner was very nice and called the dealer and got this cap for me too~
P1020786 P1020787 P1020788 
老闆還特地請代理商給我一頂這個帽子~

The box is big… being a limited edition and all…
P1020792 P1020793 P1020799
盒子很大, 限量版的果然有差…

Manuals and stuff
P1020801 P1020802 P1020803
使用手冊什麼有的沒有的~

Certificate, with some guy’s signature and shows the relationship between the design of the watch and aviation.
P1020796 P1020825 P1020826
這本證書裡面有個簽名,不過我不曉得是誰… 然後又介紹Oris跟飛行錶的歷史, 還有這支錶的一些設計靈感的來源.

It comes with a patch, Blue Eagles, to find out more about them, please Google…
P1020804 P1020806 P1020809
Blue Eagles的徽章, 你不曉得它們是誰的話, 麻煩請自己Google一下…

The biggest difference between this and the other BC4 series watches is the dial, it’s on 24hrs, not your normal 12 hour face.  There are a total of 1969 pieces of this watch made, and this one is 1260/1969. The owner called Oris and got all the numbers of the watches they have on hand, and let me pick out the one I like. Since all the of the numbers don’t really mean anything to me, I just picked one with a 6 for luck.
P1020812 P1020814 P1020815
這支錶最大的不同是在他的錶面是24小時的, 跟普通我們錶12小時不一樣. 限量1969支, 這支錶的編號是1260. 老闆還特別打去總公司問所有還沒有賣出去的錶的編號, 然後讓我選… 不過沒有一個是對我有什麼特別意義的, 所以我就隨便選了一個有6的…

The clasp imitates the buckle of the safety belts. I have no idea if it’s an ETA movement or what, and I don’t care… but the owner told me it’s a unique one, and it’s a nice one to keep. And as you can see, I’ve set the first time zone to Taipei time, and the second time zone to GMT/UTC/Zulu.
P1020818 P1020820 P1020823 
皮帶的釦子是像安全帶一樣的設計. 這支錶的機芯是什麼我也不曉得, 我也不在乎, 不過老闆說這種24小時的機芯還算不常見, 滿值得蒐藏的. 我已經把它設成台北時間, 然後外圈是設在我們比較需要用到的GMT/UTC/Zulu時區.

It’ll need some time to get used to reading the time on this one, but that’s why I like this watch, it’s different. So you think my search is over? Guess again…
這支錶的時間還需要習慣習慣, 不過這個也是為什麼我喜歡這支錶的原因, 它與眾不同~ 所以你覺得我找到了我一直再找的那隻錶了嗎? 嘿嘿嘿…

    你放棄蕭邦那隻表了喔? 我那天有看到那隻山寨版,不賴. 但對你還是有點失望,期待你敗下Bell & Ross 或者是 Chopard.. 但你卻還是停留在ORIS

  7. Lei says:

    damn!! 我喜歡那頂帽子!!

  8. Ted says:

    因為那隻太小, 大的又沒有功能性… 所以… 沒有那個價值… Bell & Ross 我已經有點… 沒有那嚜喜歡了… 而且我總覺得他不太值那個價錢…最主要的是… Oris這隻我拿了一個很漂亮的價錢… 所以… 哈哈哈~雷教官, 喜歡嗎? 叫你媽媽買給你…
