Gong xi fa cai! With the Lunar New Year festivities in full swing, let’s not forget that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away.

There is not a day where you will find CY dressed sloppily for work. Period. This is one of the few things you will notice about CY if you bump into him often enough. Dressing well to impress might be an old adage, but it is one that CY has developed a penchant for.

As CY trawls through style blogs and magazines for inspiration, along the way, he has developed a newfound interest in vintage cars and avant-garde furniture crafted out of wood. Interestingly, CY has also just started out collecting figurines. What better way to display his small but growing collection on a Philippe Starck shelf in the future? 

Which pairing from Red Army Watches would you pick for couples this Valentine’s Day?

“Instead of going with something tried-and-tested, I have made my selection purely from a design standpoint. The watches I’ve picked are therefore from separate brands. The Schaumburg Ceramatic and the Corniche Heritage 40 share several design similarities; the watch dials are finished with ceramic gloss paint while the svelte cases combine strong lines and sensuous curves. Finished off with blued hands, they are as much different as they are alike. 

The Ceramatic and Heritage 40 are both simple and elegant in their own right. Whether the couple is dressed up or down, the minimalistic watches won’t look out of place. Instead of focusing on the superfluous, pay more attention to the essentials. Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.”
