    Wow. That's one beautiful Casio.

    No updates from me. Saving to get a Seiko or something pricey and stylish.

    Some recent purchases thanks to the missus -

    One of my first purchased Swatch. I wanted something in a black strap (metal). Every thing that I saw was too heavy and big. This was just right on the wrist, and super light.

    Got these for the Missus. Anne Klein -

    The dial and strap has Ceramic coating, it's a nice deep black. Unfortunately the camera on the HTC is not doing it justice.


    The other one -

    This has a 'marble' sort of strap. Very different.


    And finally from Obaku, Their Titanium model. Very simple and beautiful -

    I just did some quick clicks right away. I know, it doesn't do justice to their beauty. Will try and snap some decent pics over the weekend.

    The final and most interesting purchase - Caterpillar Watch. Just a basic model. But do I love it!

    Damn..
    I'd have mistaken the black Anne Klien for a Rado.

    And the CAT for a Pro Diver's watch from Luminox.
    (Think I have one here somewhere.. sell these in EU, can find and post pics if you want)

    Nope, it's generally between the Swatch, Seiko and the Casio white on black. At times I just switch to a particular watch and keep wearing it till I get bored. Then it's cycling time :D

    I really need guidance on how to photograph better. My light and angles do do justice, at all.

    Usually just a frame or a box with its sides composing of transluscent white sheets. Two or more lamps to illuminate the box from the outside and a smooth white interior surface. They provide balanced illumination from all sides and are essential for product photography.
