I just finished a 3D animated video for Baume & Mercier's new Clifton watch--a massive undertaking that explains, in part, my absence (also "four more years"--but let's not go there).
I can't show it off yet because of the NDA, but here's an official photo of the product.
I haven't worn a watch since the early 2000's, when I began carrying a cellphone everywhere and a watch on the wrist became superfluous, and concurrently I also began to take serious umbrage at the tyranny of time.
Nevertheless, having spent the last three months imbibing the culture of these luxury goods, I'm now considering the purchase of a finely crafted Swiss watch--not as a status symbol, since I couldn't care less about that vulgar concept-- as an investment, yes, but mostly because they're just so anachronistically beautiful. Which complements my other eccentric foible, collecting fountain pens. The more I toil long hours at the computer, the more I find myself enamored of the inefficient, the antiquated, the elegant... I call this Dash's Paradox.
So here's what I'm considering:
The B&M Capeland 10006 series chronograph, a HUGE hunk of metal, alligator skin and sapphire crystal:
Or perhaps one of the Fortis Flieger models:
What do you think?
