No joke. I’ve probably not worn a watch in 16 years. Which, if you think about it, is very close to the time I had my first cell phone. Once I had a phone on me all the time, having a watch around my wrist to tell time didn’t seem necessary.
Here’s the thing. I like nice watches, but it’s an item that I wouldn’t necessarily invest in myself, which makes it the perfect gift. So, when my fiancees father surprised me with a Tissot watch as an engagement gift last Saturday I was thoroughly surprised!
I’ve snapped a few photos of the watch below, and had a little fun with a Kate Moss photo book along the way. Side note for camera folks: taking product shots with an 85 mm lens isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do.
In terms of watches, I’m kind of like an 85-year old that’s never used a computer. So, when I learned that the watch didn’t have a battery I was pretty intrigued by the technology. And I also have to say that it’s nice to now be able to look at my watch to learn the date instead of pulling out my phone when I forget the date six times a day.
Now for a little fun with the watch and Kate Moss…
All and all, I really like my new Tissot watch and highly recommend it/the brand if you’re in the market for a nice watch.
On a side note, if you’re interested in a great coffee table book, you may want to consider the book playing backdrop to the photos above – “Kate Moss by Mario Testino,” it contains some great fashion images.
