Your name: Tom
Your watch: Patek Philippe 5712
When – did you buy it?
My parents gave it to me as a Christmas present. I love it. Every watch I own has been for a special occasion. Whether it’s a grandfather passed down watch, or a 21st, or something from my wife. Every watch reminds me of some kind of event.
What – was special about this Christmas?
(Tom’s wife Hoda interjects) This one was a bit random. I gave him a watch as a wedding gift and he got a watch for his 21st and his 16th (his grandfather’s Patek Philippe). You would never wear this kind of watch. It’s a really old, gold, delicate, antique one.
Why – do you love this watch?
I like that it’s sporty on a rubber strap. I can wear it casually, I can wear it to work. I can wear it to the beach.
