#LookCloser – Wear Report – BOLDR x Kenji Chai – Venture Chaigo

Marshall Introduction It became somewhat of a routine to see Chaigo on my way to school almost every single day, and little did I know I would be sitting here a few years later, writing about the very artist behind Chaigo and his collaborative project with our friends over at BOLDR Supply Co.

#LookCloser – Team Matick Picks: Best Watches Around RM500, RM1,500 and RM3,000 for the 2020 Holiday Season

Introduction Yes, it is that time of the year again. Be it Christmas, the year’s end, or you just wanting to buy a watch to commemorate your 2020 (for all the right reasons, we hope), or perhaps even to buy a new watch for a friend / family member / significant other who is fairly […]

#OpenLetter – #MYSpeedmasterStory – Omega Malaysia x Team Matick

Introduction One of the reasons why we started The Matick Blog 5 years ago (we just turned 5 last week!) was to uncover the untold stories of watch collectors in the most non-pretentious manner possible.

#OpenLetter – #TimeWellSpent – Nodus Watches x The Matick Blog – Edition 3

You know what they say, it’s not about the destination, it’s more about the journey that matters. I guess this is it.  It has been a long road for us, and I dare say this is our biggest highlight to date because it stood for everything we’ve been working so hard for. When we started […]
