The Watches of Big Brother


It’s one thing to be a political “watch dog” but a watch blogger? Daniel Wu. No, not the actor, but a 33 year-old blogger was shut down. What was he doing? Pointing out what watches Chinese officials wear. He’d find photos online and talk about the wristbands of the rich. At times, they’re Rolexes that cost many times their monthly salaries. Then in another photo, they’re wearing yet another high priced time piece. You might be thinking bootleg, which is entirely possible since in China you can find anything made faux, so it was put as “appears of be wearing.” Yet he was shut down. In great Chinese proverbial fashion, Wu mentions, “No matter how high you jump, you can’t escape the Buddha’s hand.” (ft – censored watch blogger)
