Panerai Pocket Watch Tourbillon GMT Ceramica

PaneraiPW1

There are some unique watch pieces out there, and this one from Panerai an amazing piece to behold. I have always thought that pocket watches are cool with the chain in the pocket, but this piece of art is made meticulously and the chain was made to match.

There are only 50 units available across the world and each one is priced at $215’000. I would love to just to see a piece in front me even though it is well out of my reach, the pictures of this unique piece looks beautiful but it does not do it justice.

Huper Optik Switch Out

So I have been testing Huper Optik on my Landcruiser for some time, I installed the C40 which has a decent amount of heat resistance and my M6 has the same but from Llumar. I wanted to try them out since I kept hearing about the product and reading up on the differences between metallic tint and ceramic tint, and turns out that this is true. I tried out a couple of walkie talkies inside the Beemer and the Landcruier, we could get farther with the Landcruiser and its substantially clearer, and we tried it with another car with metallic tint and that also had the same results, Nano-Ceramic tint has no bad effect like metallic tint.

After the little experiment with the Landcruiser I decided to change my Beemer tint since Llumar wasn’t honoring their warranty, the tint was peeling from the windshield and passenger window. The Landcruiser cost me 220 KD to tint every window including the windshield, the Beemer cost 160 KD and they offered me a 10% discount on the car because it was my second car and even though it was more work for them. The difficulty with the beemer is that they had remove the tint and without damaging the rear window, which are those thin defogger lines. They did a great and thorough job of removing it and installing their tint. They told me that it would take about a week for some of the small bubbles to go and they did, couldn’t find any after a week. What I did like is that you are in contact with the owners, and he even told me that there is nothing wrong with my tint, he said he would just replace those two windows instead of taking the whole thing off, I was so pissed with Llumar that I wanted to remove the whole damn thing. It did also help that they were working on a car a little more sensitive then mine and I could see the car they were taking with it. I went for a combination of C40 and C30 tint which is basically very dark and a great amount heat protection, I will be stopped by the police but I don’t care at this point since it looks great on the car, the car next to me did a C60 tint which is pretty close to clear but with a lot of heat protection. I was surprised they did a heat test of my window with the Llumar tint and with the Huper Optik tint, Llumar claimed 80% heat rejection when it was only 23% and the Huper Optiks was 55%, thats another thing to add to the list of Llumar, false advertising, they claim UV rejection not the total heat rejection which is the only thing that matters in Kuwait with our sun. They have a great product and great service with decent prices, I just hope they continue at this level, they now have a loyal customer.

Good things about Huper-Optik Nano-Ceramic Tint:

  • Does not fade, unlike other tints, because it has no additives
  • Better heat protection, I can hold my steering wheel after leaving it in the sun for 8 hours
  • Doesn’t interfere with GPS, Bluetooth, Radio signals unlike metallic tint
  • No hassle service with these guys, car was done in 4 hours
  • Price is reasonable for a quality tint
  • 10 year warranty
