With The Horological Minute, Eric Ku and 10 Past Ten engage in a fascinating dialog with collectors and members of the watch industry, as they discuss anything and everything about watches. Think of it as the Proust Questionnaire for the watch aficionado.
My first watch is a snoopy plastic toy watch at 4-5 years old. As for vintage Rolex, my first one was an Explorer 2 1655 orange hand, which I had over purchased ten years ago.•

My last great meal was in Okinawa, Japan on my last vacation. The area was under a #9 typhoon alert, so we couldn't really do anything but stay in and relax and eat! The restaurant was an Okinawan cuisine place, and we ate sashimi, oysters, wagyu beef, and many other things.•
My GMT-Master 1675 with tropical dial.•
I love how vintage Rolexes are so iconic and eye catching, especially the sports watches. They are so wearable and fashionable. Rare and great condition vintage Rolexes will make you smile everyday as a professional stock trader, I find them as a good part of my "asset allocation".•
Depends on the watch. Subs I like to wear on bracelets, but tropical dial watches and Daytonas, I prefer to wear on straps.•
All of them! Haha!!•
I don't really follow or wear modern Rolexes.•
The most interesting watch of mine is my first Rolex 1655 orange hand. At that time, I had no knowledge on vintage Rolex but I was fascinated by the eye-catching orange hand. I bought it from a seller on yahoo auctions, and the seller was astonished that I know nothing about the watch and still dared to buy vintage. One more thing, I spend almost 10k USD on it and that was 2/3 of the money in my bank account. Crazy, right?•
