Dream Time-panerai luminor submersible replica

Growing up, I remember overhearing people say: “Don’t worry, you’ll just know when you meet the one.” For some reason, I was always sceptical. How could it be possible to meet someone and fall in love with them there and then? I mean, are we even designed to be with one person? At the end of the day, we are animals – filthy, filthy animals (replica breitling watches ). Maybe James Blunt was right. When contemplating this article, I couldn’t help but think of his track Your Beautiful:

I saw an angel

Of that I’m sure

She smiled at me on the subway

She was with another man…

I saw your face in a crowded place

And I don’t know what to do

‘Cause I’ll never be with you

Yes, she caught my eye

As we walked on by…

And I don’t think that I’ll see her again

But we shared a moment that will last till the end

There have been two moments that have changed my mind on love at first sight. The first was a couple of years ago, about three quarters of the way through blockbuster Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese’s smash hit. Margot Robbie’s mini-skirt clad character teases Jordan Belfort played by DiCaprio: “ Mommy is tied of wearing panties daddy,” she purrs as she pushes him away with her high heels, while he scrambles on the floor. That scene changed me. She was everything I had been looking for. I had fallen in love for the first time.

The second was a few weeks ago, when I had the opportunity to strap on the Laurent Ferrier Galet “Clou de Paris” Tourbillon and gazed down on its horological greatness.

Laurent Ferrier has been making delightfully understated wristwatches since 2008. The son and grandson of watchmakers, Ferrier, spent many years at Patek Phillipe honing his craft. When starting the brand, he had a vison for simple, uncluttered watches. For me, and many collectors around the world he has gone on to surpass that vison. The Galet (or “pebble”) has been a fixture in the collection since day one. The case, beautiful to look at and soft to the touch, manages to harness the beauty of a time-only watch, while making it instantly recognisable with its sumptuous curves – no mean feat.

The look of love

As you can imagine, when I saw the message form the Laurent Ferrier team that simply said: “The Galet will be waiting for you at William & Son,” my heart Audemars Piguet Replica Watches skipped a beat. What I love about the watch, is just how under-the-radar it is. This is, from the outside, a very simple watch. It has a slate-grey, gold dial, with guilloché “Clou de Paris” motif in the centre, surrounded with a circular satin-brushed design. The only interruption to the clear two-hands-from-the-centre face is a small-seconds at 6 o’clock.
