Wearing A Bailout On Your Wrist, Or Why Cyprus Should Speak To The Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture


As the Cypriots scramble for every penny, hoping for a Hail-Mary from Russia at the last minute, we suspect they are missing one potential provider of all that money. That nation appears to be Russian neighbor, The  Ukraine judging from the 'wealth' exhibited by some members of the Ukrainian parliament. As notes, a $650,000 watch is no problem if you create laws in Ukraine as we humbly suggest some that wealth (the rare watch is special order (here) with only 30 being made) trickle down to the Cypriots (of course at EUR400 per day per person) - they only need 7,000 watches to plug their bailout funding hole!

You can get a much better "platinum" fake at the Lo Wu KCR station for under $200.  You cannot tell the difference unless you are a jeweler, and even then maybe not.  The quality of the fake Rolexes is absolutely sublime, and they even sell fake repair parts and bands, fake boxes, and fake certificates of authenticity.

Visit that place one time and it becomes hard to ever buy a "real" luxury watch, purse, or sunglasses again.  How are you going to know?

LOL, I've actually been there the picture was an awesome flashback.... a excellent post 'hedgeless' and the copies are just sensational.  Even the movement is impossible for the layman to tell.  Even buying from a Rolex dealer is risky....

Still, I cannot see the point why anyone would buy a fake watch.

It's a nice place, by the way, and is more than just for shopping.  However, if you do go to shop then better with a local or Hong Kong friend.  When you shop walk somewhere else and let the local buy for you... it will be a third cheaper on the already cheap price, etc. Awesome high quality denim and other items... I think they just come from the same factory that makes the real stuff.  Hardly anyone displays a price it's all negotiable.

All the HK residents go to shop on the weekend for a few hours using the subway and trains. Plus you can smoke, spit and the food and drink is just fantastic. 

Gan bei Bitchez!!

Well, I own some quality watches and some fake ones.  I bought the fakes to see if I would like the watch after a few weeks of wearing.  None of the fakes comes even close to the real thing.  It would be great if the fakes really could fool me, but you can tell if you have worn the real thing once you feel it.  From a distance, it would be hard to tell though.  I keep the fakes lying around in case I ever get burglarized.

Tons or tonnes?  Either way, I will hit that bid.  Where do I wire the $650,000?


$650,000 / $29 = 22,413 ounces

22,413 troy ounces / 14.58 = 1,537 pounds

1,537 pounds < 2,000 pounds / ton

I enjoy zh even if the company here is intimidatingly whip smart...

but at last there is something I am credentialed to comment upon:

Exile you are RIGHT - it is Ukraine - no definite article is required!

The "the" was something started by the Soviets (despite Slavic's lack of an actual "the") to obliterate the nationalistic intentions of map makers (or so I am told).

By using the term "the" Ukraine - what you are doing is referring to a region or an area (not unlike "the midwest" or "the [insert cardinal direction here] coast") not a nation or sovereign entity much like Frau Merkel is trying to do to The Cyprus...

Kudos to you Exile and we now return you to your regularly scheduled snarking

Agreed, but Ukraine is special in that the name for the country literally means "borderland"

Whenever regions, even soverign countries, take on geographic aspects in their names it all becomes a matter of perspective.  Go to the opposite side of Russia and you encounter Primorski Krai which simply means "Borderland before (pri) the Sea (more)"  The only difference is that one is now a soverign state, though the historical connotation runs deep. 

Other examples: South Sudan is only south in who's eyes? Sudan.  They would be better off adopting a new name. 

Tibet or Zhangdong, meaning "Western Land" is only West from who's perspective.  This is coming from a country which calls itself Zhongwo, or Central Kingdom. 


The term "West Bank" refers to just an area on one side of a river and is wholly used to remove dignity from the Palestinians who live there.  They call their own country Palestine, so why not afford them that respect?

Jordan (from which our glorious president is now flying home) used to be called Transjordan, or "Across the Jordan". But this is only across anything when starting from who's perspective?

I always thought watches looked bulky. An odd way to show wealth.  I've felt this way long before cell phones were common, so its not that.

WTF is wrong with you if you are a law maker and are there to act in the interest of your constituency if you wear a $650,000 watch while there are many many poor people in your country? Politicians and aspirant politicians should be tested via MRI and other methods on mental disturbances such as megalomania, narcism, sociopathy, etc. But perhaps for the political system these are good attributes.

Courage.  Change is coming.  However, it may not be what we expect.

Those Ukranians are fortunate that such an accomplished businessman would effectively donate his valuable time to public service.

They now got a "glow in the dark" version, I hear.  Cherno-glo.

I clicked 'add to cart', then thought better of it.

I know a fellow who was so impressed by the apparent bargain of a $500K watch that he bought two of them.  One broke down after a few months, so it turned out lucky he had a spare.

It's one of those 'look at me, I'm important' watches.....

It isn't "The Ukraine."  It's simply "Ukraine."  Just like, it isn't "The" France.  Or "The Germany."

We are in sad times.  The Maserati/Ferrari dealership near my home closed.  Difficult times.  Now, there is a Lamborghini/McLaren dealership there.  Lord help us.
