On my Honeymoon, ones of the stops we visited was Bangkok, Thailand. While Bangkok was not the ideal honeymoon location, we still had a great time and explored quite a bit of the city and checked out several of the malls. One of the malls that was a block away from our hotel was the Siam Paragon next to Siam Square. I’ve been told recently that this is the most expensive mall in Bangkok. I’m not surprised.
There was an abundance of Watch Retailers which were about to do a large show in the following weeks, which in fact is now underway. One of the larger dealers in the mall was PMT The Hour Glass, an incredible store that sells Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet among many others.
Additionally there was a separate Patek Philippe dealer and Omega Dealers as well. The sheer amount of watches was mind-boggling. I wasn’t expecting this in Bangkok. Hong Kong, yes, but not Bangkok.
There was a huge watch display out in the middle of the mall with twenty or so watch case with stuff from IWC to Harry Winston Opus models and Breitling that was simply incredible. I had a great time and would have taken more close up pics if there wasn’t three security guards hovering around the area at all times. I was getting nervous!

I’ve decided to post a giveaway on Youtube to try and bring some of the Youtube crowd together with the Forum Crowd… given the immaturity of some of the Youtube crowd, some of you might be asking me why I could possibly want to do this. Well, the majority of the users are very cool.. its primarily the younger ones that really have no interest in the watches to begin with that try and stir up trouble.
At any rate, I really wanted to do a youtube contest to see how it would pan out. Its not crazy popular yet, but hopefully it will take off. You need to watch the video and follow all the directions in the video to win!

I am awaiting my return flight home from Thailand and Hong Kong, and as most of you know, the amount of watch shops in Hong Kong is absolutely mindboggling. There are watch stores all over the place, on the streets, in the malls, and in the hotels. Each Mall has a minimum of half a dozen watch stores! I visited a few, and snaps a couple of pics, but nothing up close as I did not want to disturb the stores.
I am going to write up a small summary of my experiences in Thailand and HK. Keep posted! 🙂
