I joined a luxury timepiece distributor and retailer without having owned a “serious” watch to talk about. I could only claim to have a good eye and taste for watches, and how I prefer masculine to feminine styles.
The wait is over – I now have a new Baume & Mercier MyClassima piece. It is an elegant men’s model in a chic timeless design. It is an affordable luxury item available at retail price starting from CHF950.-, that complements my collection of simpler timepieces.
I know it sounds like a cliché, but I do feel this watch has become a companion that shares some of my key moments and events. Take for example a fun moment at the Warehouse Hotel. I was with my good Singaporean friend and photographer of the day, Sarah and the hotel interior was just too great to miss out on a photoshoot. We both felt awkward but also totally amused making our best poses for the camera in front of the crowd. It was my first shoot with MyClassima watch.
More deeply, MyClassima will definitely serve to remind me of this milestone in my life – when I chose to venture away for the first time from the comfort of my home in Switzerland. A watch that means something to you tells more than the time now. It also tells of memorable time past.
