A BREEZY chat with Carson “Watch Professor” Chan...
J: One watch that best suits 2020
C: I would recommend Sinn EZM 12. You can disassemble the entire watch and submerge them in disinfectant. They are specifically designed for medical personnel.
J:If you could only wear one watch for the rest of your life, what would it be?
C: This is rather a difficult question, because I would never want to just wear one. But if I have to pick, it will be the most expensive one, a Patek Philippe 6300A auctioned for CHF 31 millions in 2019.
J: As an avid watch enthusiast, which watch should one to start with?
C: I think one should start with an affordable mechanical watch, then you will begin to tell the difference between automatic and manual wind watches.

...It'd be torture!"

J: The biggest watch-wearing faux pas?
C: One thing I really can’t stand is people wearing prayer beads, crystal bracelets or any other accessory on their watch wrist. Don't they know their watches will get scratched!
J: Upcoming watch trend?
C: Green and salmon colour is going to be a big hit. Also, for the past few years, 42mm, 44mm and 45mm were very popular sizes, but I think 40mm or under will make a comeback.
