Please introduce yourself
Eddie Law, 34, born in Hong Kong and came to Sydney, Australia at the age of 7. I own a footwear wholesale business. Happily married and have a beautiful daughter, who I hope one day will be into watches. Friends introduced me into instagram a few years ago, and it’s been great for me as I use it for researching things I collect. Like watches, lego, whisky, cigars…. But my passion is watches.

Oris 65 bronze

Is there a story behind your Instagram name laweddie?
I was gifted this name by my late parents, turns out Eddie Law was already taken on Instagram by someone in Hong Kong. Who I think are also into watches as he’s posted pictures of his PAM005 before. So I got really creative and flipped it back to front (Law Eddie).

When and how did your passion for watches start?
2010 (6 years ago) I was travelling with my wife to Hong Kong to spend Christmas with my brother and sister. I decided to get myself a luxury watch as a xmas present to myself. My brother @princeoftennis was into watches then and pointed me towards a rolex Daytona. Back in 2010 I had zero knowledge with watches, I only knew everyone wants a Rolex. I like to be a little different as you can see from my collection, so I knew I didn’t want a Rolex and settled with a Panerai PAM329.

Bell and Ross

Which watches are in your current collection?

  • IWC bigpilot top gun perpetual calendar ( this one is my current favorite)
  • Jaeger lecoultre navyseal diving alarm (stumbled across this by luck in Sienna Italy, possibly the smallest authorized dealer in the world who only carried 5 JLC watches and nothing else)
  • Tudor pelagos blue
  • Panerai PAM233
  • Oris Carl Brashear bronze
  • Sinn U1 camouflage
  • Seiko Marinemaster SBDX016
  • Omega seamaster 300
  • Bell Ross desert type BR03-92
  • Zenith extra special Bronze pilot
  • Mistersinger jumping hour transparent
  • Wilkwatch Lydian tourbillion

And a whole heap of other stuff probably not worth mentioning about.

IWC Pilot

What are the most important factors when you buy a watch?
I have to like the look or the special functions. It doesn’t have to be Automatic, it can be quartz as long as I like the look of it.

Seiko marinemaster

What are your grail watches and what’s so desirable about them?
My dream watch was the IWC perpetual calendar, now that I’ve got it, I don’t know what my next dream pieces is….

In your eyes, what makes the perfect watch picture and do you have some tricks?
I only have one requirement, the watch must be in focus….if its blurry….please don’t post them LOL.
