The Complications of Desire

I often get asked - "Okay, money's no object... what watch would you choose?"

Yes, it would be this.  This is not a "brand new release".  It does not have a chronograph, second time zone, perpetual calendar - not dipped in "pixie dust"....

This is the Patrimony Contemporaine from Vacheron Constantin.

It is a beautiful, timeless watch.  Rose gold.  Hours, minutes, seconds.  And because I'm a sucker for "crazy" complications this also has a date function!

Here's the thing, there is nothing wrong with something elaborate, complicated and "fussy".  But there is something to be said for classic - not simple, but classic.

I often hear people call a classic gold watch the "retirement" watch.  That's the wrong time to get something this great.  You Shouldn't Have to Wait for Retirement!

So, if I have some incredibly wealthy relative out there that I don't know about, and they are wondering just what to get me this year...
