Dive Master 500 Mechanical

First of all! Sorry for my lack of post recently, due to my assignments and just my daily chores. The good news is I am back! That’s right! I am done with my degree so now with nothing much in my life, I will be focusing full time here. Fashion is a hobby of mine and it would be awesome if I made a full time career out of it.

Enough excuses, let me go right into my blog post. This few days I plan to reorganize my blog a little bit, do some theme changes and maybe organize my topics. By 2014, I will surely make my blog a place to be for any fashion lovers out there. =)

Firstly, Happy 21st birthday to myself! (16-12-2013) Yes, for you that don’t know I turned 21 recently. It was an amazing birthday! One of them was receiving a valuable birthday present from my father. My father believed guys should have a luxurious timepiece at the age of 21, therefore this gift was truly one of the best.

To be honest, I do not do much research on a particular timepiece, all I know is the simple stuff. When my dad suggested I went and find a timepiece that I like, I was not sure what I should be looking at. This particular watch was love at first sight.

When I wore it on. 

I plan to do a small review of this product. After getting it, I went home and did some research, the particular timepiece is from the Dive Master 500 Collection, where it is a mechanical watch. This is actually a diver’s watch that can be underwater up to 500m deep. Even so, it looked nice that I would buy even if I am not a diver.

The timepiece comes in 5 different colour, black, grey, blue, red and brown.

was actually choosing between the black, grey and brown initially, but I went with the brown, because I wanted something to look more my age and more edge to it rather than the normal black watch and my skin was relatively fair, so brown was my pick.

Isn’t it a beauty? The brown is very unique as well.

The functions are listed below.

  • Swiss Made
  • Ø 43 mm Stainless steel case (316L)
  • Mechanical self-winding movement (ETA 2892.A2)
  • Scratch-resistant, triple coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal
  • Water resistant to 500 m (50 ATM, 1650 ft)
  • Black Ice PVD case
  • Luminescent hands, hour and bezel markers
  • Screw-in caseback
  • Protected screw-down crown
  • Date calendar
  • Genuine rubber strap

Weirdly enough I could not find an actual price for it, but I got mine at approximately RM3300 (USD 1000), I must say it was a little pricey but it’s a luxury watch. Therefore I am truly thankful to my dad for willingly spending this much for me.

Info is from Victorinox Swiss Army.

Have a look and let me know do you like it. Do leave comments telling me what you want me to write or review and even your opinion. I receive a huge number of emails recently and will get back soon, sorry for the delay as I was not free to reply. Thanks for the support guys, Christmas is nearby, will do a Christmas shopping post soon. Cheers!

Element Casing Ion 5 for iPhone 5/5S

Here is one for the gadget geeks. I was hunting down casing for my new iPhone 5S the other day. Yes, I finally got the new iPhone! =D Thank to my father which I am extremely grateful for! Back to this post, I came across multiple casing for iPhone 5. However in one of the Apple store, I saw this particular casing.DSC_0174

It looked beautiful, however was priced so high for an iPhone casing, RM 179 / USD 50. Dad eventually did get it for me, which I am grateful for, but I got it purely for the design. How it made my iPhone looked sleek while protecting it around the 4 edges.

The box wrote 5 points though:
High Impact resistant TPU Body
Genuine Carbon Fiber backing
Reinforced corners
Ergonomic shape for a positive grip
Integrated button design

Did some online research and found what the first two was talking about.

“The Ion 5 utilizes a high impact-resistant TPU material that in reality feels a lot like a standard TPU case of high quality. That said, the Ion 5 isn’t just any ordinary TPU case, but rather a precision TPU case because of its refined lines and attention to detail. The finish is what Element Case calls a matte rubber stoned finish. It’s got an amazing granular texture that provides great tactile grip when held, but won’t attract dust and lint – nor will it snag when put into a pocket. The material definitely feels exactly like SwitchEasy’s rubberized TPU material it uses on its Bonds and Tones cases.

Gone is the glossy and plastic-coated looking carbon fiber that for long has been the centerpiece of Element Case’s Ion and Formula cases. The Ion 5 is all about the natural sheen of carbon fiber and the unique looking pattern it brings forth. You can clearly see that looking at it from the back where a sharp looking large matte layer of carbon fiber occupies the majority of the surface. Although carbon fiber is durable, the clear matte coating that protects the finish isn’t. To help eliminate scuffing, the carbon fiber plate is slightly recessed in relation to the rest of the TPU body. So every time you set your iPhone 5 on a table or rub it around unintentionally, know that the carbon fiber will remain unscathed. A little attention to detail goes a long way. We really look forward to the release of a duo-toned Ion 5 case that’ll really make the carbon fiber centerpiece pop out.”

Both paragraph quoted from Gadget Mac. Read their review too, to find out more.

They say Ion 5 was design with a firm grip and shock proof which if I were to fall my phone, it will protect it. I would not try that though. Despite the higher price for this iPhone casing, so far I love it. It is nice in design as well as practical, would definitely recommend it! Let me know what do you think, or do you have any iPhone casing you like to share.
