Portrait of a Legend: Philippe Dufour

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Spending a day with one of the legends of Independent watchmaking – The Grandmaster himself: Philippe Dufour is always such a great pleasure.

I count myself incredibly lucky to be able to own a Dufour Simplicity, and even more lucky to be able to call Philippe Dufour a good friend. So please pardon me for the delayed telecast of Friday’s post, as I just had to indulge my friend, and bring him to eat one of his favourite Singapore dishes – Bak Kut Teh.
Even Lengendary Grandmasters need to eat!

Holding court, with my two other friends: Veteran watch journalist Larry Wee, and Mr Logistics: Eddie Sng.

As a watch collecting group, wrist shots are very popular.There is a Facebook site called Wristshots by my good friends at Watchonista which receive hundreds of postings a day, and another by Russell Cheong called Foodie’s Watch which also very active. This would probably qualify as an ultimate wrist shot…
