Dottling Colosimo

I saw this and thought it looked like a cute safe, I even thought it was a very cool piggy bank. I got up closer to it only to realize that this was a watch winder safer, a ridiculously cool one at that. It looked like a retro mini safe from the 1950’s only when I walked up to it did I know what it was. It even opened and closed like a real safe with all the locks getting into place.

After doing a little research I realized that this watch winder safe is made by Dottling, and you would only probably get it for a super expensive watch since it costs $30’000. And here I thought it was a cool looking small piggy bank, I was way off, I even looked for the slot above. People usually get watch winders for their automatic watches so they are always charged since they require movement and these winders move periodically to keep it charged, you can control that. Even though it turned out to be insanely expensive I still thought it was cool.

Stolen Credit Card – Again

NBD

It seems Dubai has turned into the Center of Credit Card thieves and credit card fraud, I got a call from the bank late Thursday night if I made transactions in Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, and a few online transactions. The amount was 460 KD, I told them I only used my Credit Card once in an ATM in Dubai at a National Bank of Dubai ATM in the Mall. How in the hell could my card have been copied from that terminal, I honestly looked at it and scrutinized it and I still got taken. The bank said it isn’t a problem and they will clear it up, I won’t get charged but they found the transactions to be odd. I use this credit card once in a blue moon, so all these charges seemed odd to them. The first time it happened with my NBK Check Card and that was a huge inconvenience, since they changed my account numbers and all the details, but this time it was my credit card. I try to travel with sufficient cash to Dubai but sometimes I have to use my credit card and I decided to use my credit card instead of my check card so I’m lucky that the amount wasn’t huge and the bank reacted quickly. They told me two days for a card replacement and I will be able to use the card normally.
