Gordy Strap HK

Gordy’s Camera Straps 的官方香港網站是我們第 4 個造的網頁,所以在拍攝或網站技術上也沒有多大的障礙,相對這次比較花時間的是撰寫內容,尤其是對於我這個中不成英不就的港人。既要保留品牌原來的意思,且要使用我們熟悉的語調…..

顏色不符? (下)

之前示範過看圖時有機會出現的誤差,這次試試拍照時做成的錯覺。
用家們最常接觸到的圖片都不是各品牌的官方圖片,而是在社交網絡、討論區或者在 IM ( 例如 WeChat, Whatsapp, Line 之類之類) 裹朋友之間互相分享的圖片,所以有不少顧客是參考著這些圖片來查詢的。這些圖片大部分都是以手機拍攝,而其實手機拍的圖片不一定失準的,懂利用光源也可以有很接近的效果,但普遍上用家自拍的圖片都是分享喜悅為主,那會花心機去試這試哪呢?而且圖片不是無添加完全沒有修整過,就是按拍攝者喜好修過的圖,種種因素下出現的顏色偏差是很合理的啊。所以當看到其他用家的自拍手錶/錶帶照時,參考外型無妨啊,色澤嘛…..

顏色不符 ? (上)

為何只是示範復刻系列呢?其他款式/產品沒有這些錯覺嗎? 當然都有啊。
但一般我們看圖片看產品時拿個大概就能收貨,例如在選 SLC – 黑色/舊化綠色/金色,等等其他色系分明的玩意時,即使顯示器是偏向明艷或暗淡表現再有參差,成品也不會跟期望偏離,金色也不會變了完全另一個款色,金就是金啦對吧?。在日常大部分時間裹,我們都能接受「大概」,可參巧就足夠。

可是每當挑選復古款色的錶帶時,我們都會突然變了 “色” 魔。

26mm Strap onto a 44mm Pam243

The extra width makes the strap look even more “vintage”, so this oversized approach is more suitable on the “vintage” straps. The clean colourful preppy strap is best suited with the exact fitting, it simply feels more right in our opinion. We did a short comparison at the end of the video.

a new look

we have been seeing a lot of vintage looking straps,but just what exactly is a vintage strap?
Wear the strap extensively, making it smelly and dirty. Are you willing to sacrifice the watch to be smelly and dirty? with scratches and dents?

Teseo Tesei and the Panerai

Teseo Tesei was an Italian naval officer who had invented the human torpedo in the 40s. The torpedo known also as the S.L.C., the pig, and the maiale.  It later became the icon of the Panerai watches, and only recently did Panerai release the PAM 785 set which includes the little Pig made of resin. Today’s Italian Commando Frogmen group is called, thank you Wiki, Comando Raggruppamento Subacquei e Incursori Teseo Tesei,  named after Teseo Tesei in order to honour his bravery and commitments.

MEET THE CREATOR 他是誰?

由以前到現在 James 都不是一個做”生意”的人,以前聽他說每條錶帶的”出處”,如何在選料上和結構上一定要盡量把歷史複製的極度偏執,我們都說他是一個瘋子(其實這也解釋了為何我們錶帶上的號碼是不接受隨意改寫的)。
他對軍事和手錶的知識都變成物件,只是這次他復出後比以前的範圍還要廣,每件事做得比以前更加深入。


Panerai 專門店時,你有被他們用作裝飾那只潛水艇吸引嗎?「對不起這個是不賣的啊….」已經不記得被太子大廈的 Ricky 反覆婉距了多少次。一直到去年推出的 785 set 才終於有機會擁有這只魚雷。我們都知道 Panerai 的經典都離不開潛水艇-SLC (意大利文 Siluro a Lenta Corsa 的簡稱,中譯-慢速魚雷 ) ,他,Teseo Tesei,這位鬍子先生就是 SLC 的發明人。

Teseo Tesei 除了是軍官和海軍工程師外,他更對今天 Panerai 的飾品有很直接的影響。 Read more

A Campaign

The word “Campaign” freaks us out ! It emits a strong impression of Big Budget, and that is something we cannot afford.

As a low roller, our limit stretches no more than images. And so we makes images. Read more

Product Shots

Lifestyle / Travel images, found on the web, are so very attractive. So we turned the storage space upside down looking for items that may be appropriate to make a travel image. We found a hefty ME 38 Pocket, a chunky Strider knife, and along with other daily items. Read more

Product Mix

Our shop also sells watch straps for Panerai. This product mix creates somewhat an odd impression to the brand identity, yet we feel it is still within the scope. However, we wish to spread this mix even farther apart, possibly losing whatever identity we may have built over the last 5 years. Read more
