Vintage watches: boat talk

My dear friends, today I would like to share something with you that happened to me last summer… I was on a boat in Sardinia with some friends, enjoying the sun and the wonderful sea around the island of Budelli, while my gaze suddenly fell on the wrist of the commander of our boat… To say nothing of the fact that he was a beautiful man, I realized that on his wrist he was wearing a fantastic watch from the 1950s…

Because of my big passion for vintage watches, I couldn’t help myself but to get closer to have a better look at this masterpiece. And without further delay I asked the commander why he would wear such a precious piece on the boat… I discovered that this elegant and passionate man chose this beautiful and valuable watch as a companion on his adventures, yes he really said it to me like that, “companion of adventure!” In fact he reminded me that for a man, the pieces of jewelry that characterize him are very few…

In his collection he has a few wonderful and precious pieces. While I was talking to him about his watches I could see that they are very dear to him, not only for their financial value. He told me that for one of them he even sold a motorcycle. This man wearing only a swimsuit and his watch was extremely fascinating indeed…

When our friends who were traveling with us realized that we were talking about watches, they all came closer and joined our conversation, proving that watches always have a charm on women and men. All of us shared the opinion that it’s important to have several models and that these pieces can really be works of art, even though the real value might not always be visible from the outside but hidden inside the case…

In the discussion we had, a dear friend of us who was also wearing a beautiful watch on her wrist told us that for special occasions she always likes to wear a watch that she inherited from her mother together with a precious necklace from Tiffany from 1987… She said with these two precious pieces of jewelry she always feels great. Another friend of us told us that she owns two very precious models, which caused quite some jealousy among us…
The real discussion then started between the men… Some of them were of the opinion that for each occasion you should wear a different watch… It depends upon the occasion whether you would wear a sport Rolex or a very elegant one… Then the discussion moved into the direction of what is fascinating and what not…

At this moment my focus went again to the wrist of our fascinating commander…

After this I send you warm regards, with the blue of the sea in my heart!
