During times of increased stress and pressure, whether that be due to upcoming deadlines at work, important meetings that just have to go well or the current economic and health concerns we are currently experiencing, it is that much more important to practice gratitude and surround ourselves with the people and the things that we love. Making family meals together at home, practicing your chip shot in your backyard, or reflecting on the heritage timepiece that will be passed down throughout your family are all great examples of being mindful and present throughout moments of stress. When the world forces us to hit pause and slow down our lifestyle just a little bit, it is a nice time to admire the beauty and the abundance that surrounds our every day. This month we want to take a minute to reflect on some of our favorite legacy timepieces that bring beauty and brilliance to our lives.
Patek Philippe: Patek Philippe has long be regarded for the beauty and precision they bring to each one of their timepieces. In the same way, one would invest in a coveted and timeless watch in order to pass down to their future generations, the handcrafted detail and adornments on a Patek Philippe timepiece are executed by the hands of highly skilled specialists—a talent that is also passed down through generations. The beauty is in the details and from its beating heart to its case and dial, to own a Patek Philippe is to honor the meticulous attention to craftsmanship and to revel in the spectacular creation that embodies centuries-old techniques.
Cartier: The living heritage of Cartier originates with their first piece dating back to 1860 and their story lives on today. Cartier has long embodied a conversation between creativity and technique, which is evident in each piece of their collection. Their ability to bring their materials and designs to life represents a fluid relationship between the designers and the watchmakers. Throughout the decades the collections have grown, evolving constantly. From their emblematic animal, the Panther, to the iconic style of their timepieces, Cartier is steeped in history and the magnetism or their timepieces are world-renowned.
Rolex: With a long history of iconic partnerships, Rolex is not only one of the most recognizable brands in the world, they have also aligned themselves with some of the most exemplary athletes and figures in the world. Rolex has been accompanying explorers, adventurers, and leaders of their fields for over a century, and their legacy is well regarded. With scrupulous attention to detail and a perfect marriage between functionality and style, Rolex’s position atop the horology field is well earned. With a unique and lasting contribution to global culture, science, and exploration, Rolex creates timepieces worthy of gifting to future generations.
When the world deals us difficult moments, it is important to stop and appreciate the things we have in our lives that bring us joy and beauty. Heritage timepieces are great ways to infuse your family tree with history and family legacy!
