Reflections on a golden moment
by Charles David
I see that Leo DiCaprio, auctioned his watch to a fellow swell, in the name of Earth’s
redemption. An admirable thing but, I wonder if he really enjoyed wearing his timepiece, treasuring each minute’s movement, confident in knowing precisely the date, should an unexpectedly serious moment blitz the short-term memory suddenly. Did he privately caress the burnished black fine grain leather of the classic gold buckle wristband-something ultimately genteel and suave, that might be glimpsed under a french-cuffed, gleaming white linen shirt, worn say, by 007’s adversary? Would he pause to buff the crystal gently and reflect into the matte obsidian watch face and consider the simple pleasures of being a swell fellow?
This is a pleasure, owning and experiencing my Larsson & Jennings gentleman’s timepiece.
