Sonya Yu has three jobs. She’s an executive coach in the startup-crazed Bay Area, where pretty much everyone identifies as a Chief Something Officer, which means she has no shortage of clients. She runs Four One Nine, a sunlit event space for the local creative community – chefs and artists and musicians, right-brain thinkers who often struggle to find support amidst the tech monoculture. And she’s the co-founder of a new magazine called Myles that celebrates sneakers, design, and travel. If those three career paths seem wildly disparate, well, that’s because Yu’s whole life is about refusing to be put in a box.
Her collecting mentality is similarly mixed. She’s into fine art (and serves on the board of SFMOMA), spotless Nikes (hence her magazine), and designer clothes (“old Celine – Phoebe Philo era, Rick Owens, Thom Browne”). And she has a fierce high quality replica watches collection, represented below by two key examples from two monumental brands. In a funny way, because a watch is never just a watch, you might say these timepieces embody her restless taste: Some are modern, others vintage. Some are hype-y, others classic. Some are expensive, others are – um, very expensive. Sonya Yu does not do cheap. Her best US fake watches are in impeccable condition. And each model represents a horological design language that has endured for decades. “The iconic,” Yu says, “will always draw me.”
Replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 Watches In Rose Gold
“When this watch first came out,” Yu says, “I just thought it was gorgeous. It has this beautiful ombré brown dial. I had been calling around, tracking it all over. One day I was in New York and I called around, and a retailer had one in stock. So I was like: ‘Great. I will be in, in the next 30 minutes. Just hold it for me.’ I go in, I’m with my ex – and they address him the entire time. Like, ‘Thank you, sir, for coming in, blah, blah, blah.’ I’m like: ‘Okay, I’m the one that called. I’m here for the Patek.’ They bring the perfect copy watches out and they bring it to him. I’m like: ‘Okay, this watch is for me. Thank you very much.’ I try it on: ‘Great. I will take it.’ I hand them my card, and they come back with the receipt and give it to him! They interact with him the whole time, even though it’s clear it’s for me. I’m the one trying it on. I’m the one calling. My partner is silent the entire time. He is not buying the Swiss movements Patek Philippe replica watches for me – I’m buying it for myself. It was just so indicative of misogyny in the watch world.”
Even that unpleasantness can’t detract from the super clone watches wholesale itself, which is gorgeous, rare, and as valuable as a condominium. And with characteristic tenacity, Yu has chosen to use the incident as motivation. “It does drive me to do the work that I’m doing. Not only my coaching but also the work that I do here at Four One Nine to give people resources and infrastructure that they previously were not given. I was overlooked. I am still overlooked. And I understand that if someone had just given me a chance or given me some more guidance or resources, I would have run with it. So this fake Patek Philippe watches for sale, to me, represents that hunger that I feel within myself and that I seek in others. I’m like: ‘Oh, you’re hungry? I can work with hunger. I know what that’s like.'”

Right about now, you might be asking: Why would a person buy second luxury replica Patek Philippe Nautilus watches? The answer is, basically, because she wanted it. And if we’re all honest with ourselves, isn’t collecting an awful lot about wanting? So much of it is about unreasonable desire. The thrill of the chase. And the satisfaction that comes from finding the pot of gold (or, in this case, hunk of steel) at the end of the rainbow.
“Throughout COVID and all the life changes that I’ve experienced in the last two years,” Yu says, “I just decided: This is it. I feel like I’m stepping into a new era, a new chapter of me, and it’s not about being in the background or asking for permission anymore. I’m giving permission myself to just go for this grail 1:1 replica watches. And it’s so funny because I said it out loud to a fellow friend and watch collector: ‘Okay, you know what, I’m going to do it. I’m going to go on the hunt for it.’ And then two weeks later, it came up. I felt like: ‘I gotta have it. I’m not hesitating on it.’ It was the one. And that’s part of what I really believe in the world. You have to speak it aloud and manifest your desires, your goals, ambitions, and who you are.”
