My mom used to tell me that it would take my dad longer than her to get dressed and ready to go out. He was apparently quite the dapper gentleman, someone who cared about every little detail. I know that the two of them made for a very beautiful couple, but I unfortunately never really knew him personally. My dad died in his early 40s when I was just three years old. He was a very young man, and I was a very young boy.
I grew up in a very traditional Chinese immigrant family, which meant the subject of death was rarely, if ever, discussed due to superstition. So my mom almost never talked about my dad when I was younger. In fact, it wasn’t until I graduated from high school that I was able to really connect with his memory, after my mom gifted me best UK Omega replica watches of his that I never knew existed.
One day, we went to our safety deposit box in the basement of the old Bowery Savings Bank. She took out high quality Omega Constellation fake watches, put it on my wrist, and said, “I want you to have this. You didn’t really know your father. This is really the only thing I have left of him; I want you to have it.”
Even at that age, when I didn’t know anything about perfect replica Omega watches or other fancy things, I knew the watch was special the moment I saw it. It was made of gold and the caseback had a beautiful engraving of an Observatory surrounded by stars. In the years that followed, I started asking more and more questions about it – and about him.
It turns out that my dad had quite an interesting life.
My mom and dad were both born in Guangzhou, China. Whereas my mom left Guangzhou to go to Hong Kong and then eventually to New York, my dad took a more circuitous route. He was from a village where quite a few men were immigrating to Cuba. The Chinese were brought to Cuba in the late 1800s and early 1900s to work as indentured laborers. There ended up being a huge Chinese population in Havana; at one point there were at least 100,000 Chinese men working in the sugar plantations to earn their freedom. My dad was lured to Havana by relatives who had a grocery store there. He lived in Havana during Cuba’s most glamorous days – nightlife, tourists, casinos, getting dressed up, you know it. But the entire time my dad lived in Cuba, he was saving whatever money he earned, knowing that he’d eventually make his way to America.
He eventually emigrated to New York where there was already a thriving Cuban-Chinese immigrant community in Chinatown. He ended up finding work in a Cuban-Chinese restaurant and it wasn’t long before he met my mom. My dad always liked nice things, and he worked hard in the restaurant to save money so he could buy a few nice things to wear on special occasions and to court my mom. In his mind, my dad was this debonair kind of guy, despite the fact he was working in a kitchen trying to build a life for himself in New York.
He knew he couldn’t afford very many nice things, but he still saved his money to buy things like a beautiful suit, and many, many hats. He had Borsalino hats; he had Stetson hats – my dad loved hats. Another one of the things he saved his money for was this cheap Omega copy watches.
My mom told me all of this after she gave me his watch.
I look at my dad’s Swiss made Omega replica watches as a symbol of hustle and of dreams. It’s a symbol of always wanting and aspiring to better things. What’s crazy is that this is a watch that realistically my dad never should have been able to afford – and yet, he made it happen because it was important for him to own something beautiful. It must have required a lot of discipline to save everything he earned in the kitchen to have something beautiful, and I don’t think that’s a value that everyone shares. The China Omega fake watches reminds me where I get my personal lifelong appreciation of beauty and art from. Even though my dad wasn’t able to instill that interest in me while I was growing up, his watch reminds me that a love for design and style is in my DNA.
I don’t wear the 1:1 replica Omega watches every day, but I put it on whenever I have a big project that I’m working on. I’ve worn it whenever I’ve had big interviews or big meetings where I needed to feel his presence and his courage. I wore it at my wedding, or whenever there was a big family occasion like my nephew’s graduation. It’s been a character at every single important life event for me.
And then sometimes I wear it just because I’m thinking of him and I want to have him with me for extended periods of time. It feels like he’s here with me when I wear it.
I wear it when I feel like I need my dad, when I feel like I need his protection.
It might be a little superstitious and sentimental, but I really do believe that AAA Omega super clone watches and jewelry can hold power through generations. The idea that this Omega used to sit on his wrist with pride is so important to me. This watch meant success to my dad. Even if that success was working in a restaurant, marrying the love of his life, and having kids – it all meant something to him.
I’ve been wearing my dad’s Omega replica watches shop a lot since I started my own business with The Hao Life. I’ve previously only ever worked in corporate jobs, so this is the first time I don’t have that safety net to fall back on at work.
Everything that I’m doing now is on my own, so having him with me through his top fake Omega watches gives me that extra mojo I sometimes need.
