Alfonso Faustino: Seiko Turtle Diver 6309-7040

I am so happy with Alan, Master Technician, at United Watch Services. Like my Seiko Pogue, Alan did a great job in bringing my Seiko Turtle Diver 6309-7040 to better-than Seiko Factory specifications. Alan mentioned that the Seiko movements can do more than the specifications set by Seiko; hence, my Seiko Pogue and my Seiko…

Alfonso Faustino: Clint Eastwood: Dirty Harry Sunglasses

Clint Eastwood is my favorite actor, director, and businessman. He is also of similar life-principles as my father: mind your own business; and, if you want something, get off your ass and work for it — ain’t nobody gonna give it to you. Lately, for the past week, I’ve been on a Clint Eastwood movie…

Alfonso Faustino: What time is it?

This BLOG will chronicle my wrist-checks throughout my travels and activities in life.

Staying Fit: Apple Watch Series 6 & MyFitnessPal

BEGIN UPDATE: Fitness Update: 2-April-2022: I don’t believe in losing nor maintaining a certain weight with proprietary meal plans nor taking diet pills nor supplements. I never used them.

Alfonso Faustino: Volkl C10 Pro to Wilson RF97A (Roger Federer)

Pardon me for not posting in a long time; I’ve been super busy with my acting career — an audition almost every single day with a one day deadline for major episodic series and major studio production feature films.

Alfonso Faustino: Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro

BLUF: Get it! Excellent training tool for all levels of tennis players. I was very skeptical of this device; but, I trained it for two days, and I went out on the tennis court to apply my training to execution, and I was overwhelming surprised. DICTA: I was bored at home; it was 0106 hours,…
