My Guess Watches

Interestingly, I was at a Guess watch yesterday trying to get my watches working again. I had a little chat with the guy who replaces the batteries. And below are some facts:
1. If your watch cover (on the reverse side), need to be peeled open, your watch is old, and if someone tries to sell you one of these, please make sure it is free or very cheap (because it should be old stock)
2. If your watch is original, ensure that the battery inside is made from Maxell. It should not be Sony or anything else. But more expensive watches would want battery made by Swiss manufactured batteries. So do watch it.
3. Life span of a decent Japanese battery is RM15 (including installation services). Life span of a lousy battery is several months (don't know how much it costs) AND a Swiss battery could go up to 2 years (for about RM20)!!

So that is that, a little wisdom from the watch maker :)

Another Scam in my Mailbox

Scam comes in a lot of ways and shapes. Now I have another piece. I don't know if someone who stands to gain 7.2 million USD would want to come and give any share of it to me. Sorry scammers, my philosophy of life is always 'you have to earn everything, except for grace of God'. Have a nice day and don't fall for this, a serious warning for folks out there...
