KC – Content Writer (Malaysia)
Working as a medical doctor, KC is currently in the emergency department of a private medical center in northern Malaysia. As such, he has a predilection for tougher watches that are capable of surviving the various bodily fluids he may be exposed to on a regular working day. Vintage and dressier watches are often reserved for off days and special events.
With irregularly alternating day and night shifts, KC tends to both produce and consume watch related content in fits and spurts. But he’ll never shy away from sneaking in a quick wristshot or pocketshot between patients to maintain some semblance of a social media presence.
As an outlet for KC’s nerdy side, he deeply enjoys the more technical aspects of horology, and takes delight in reading and writing about the inner workings of various calibers and complications. This is reflected in his personal tastes as well; he finds functional aspects, technological innovations and meticulous attention to detail to be as important as the external design of the watch itself.
Outside of horology, KC is fueled by coffee, and is an avid fan of space exploration, technology, and gaming.
VINCENT – Content Writer (Malaysia)
Vincent is a Master of Business Administration & Bachelor of Food Science graduate from Melbourne, Australia. He is currently working in a private multi-national audiophilic company as a casual and devoting his time into writing and learning photography about watches.
Despite his qualifications, Vincent considers himself as a multi-potentialite where he came in touch with industries such as services, hospitality, pharmaceuticals, food manufacturing. Vincent first encountered the watch world when he was given a Fossil and Swatch for his 20th birthday, and since then started collecting different pieces that include Seiko, Silvana, Felca, Tag Heuer etc.
He believes that every watch shouldn’t be judged according to its face value, but also its sentimental value, which is the reason why he chose not to replace the damaged crystals and bezels of watches that were passed down to him from his father.
Vincent loves to discover obscure brands and share them with his peers, and he is also into phone photography as a starter.
Other than that, he is also into video games, cars, anime, music-listening and coffee (tasting). “
