I ordered two... It's a good cause IMO.
The Government of China is totalitarian, anti-democracy and anti-free speech.
Yet China is also extremely powerful, which the recent reversal of the National Basketball Association in its stance on the Hong Kong democracy protests has proven all too well.
At a time when those protesters urgently need international support, foreign governments are also sitting by idly, not wishing to upset China.
It’s therefore time for us regular folks to show color - to support peaceful protesters in Hong Kong in their struggle to preserve the city’s unique status, which provides for certain freedoms and rights not granted to the citizens of Mainland China.
We’ve developed a special edition wristwatch to signal popular support for those protesters who conduct themselves in an orderly and peaceful manner.
This watch is called Yellow Object. It’s a curious name for a Kobold watch, but if you review the below video clip by Amnesty International, you’ll understand its meaning.
Appropriately, given the origins of its name, the Yellow Object is a beater watch.
With the famous Kobold ad with the late actor James Gandolfini in mind, the Yellow Object is the horological equivalent of the middle finger raised in the direction of the Hong Kong Police, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam and the Government of China.
Proceeds from the sale of the Yellow Object go in equal parts to Hong Kong Free Press - a non-profit independent media organization - as well as Amnesty International Hong Kong.
