Amalfi coast, one of any number of waterside restaurants, fresh grilled fish, bottle of rose. I haven’t been for a little while, but on some winter’s days I go there every time I close my eyes.
I fall in love with a different watch monthly, but I love my Omega Speedmaster 3572.50 for the simple reason that it belongs to my son. He doesn’t know it yet: I wear it, and I hope he will soon be fascinated by the open case back, and when he’s 21 I’ll pass it on to him.
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for watch rolls. I like the romance of them; perfect for travel they’re ready for action at a moment’s notice. Just add a steel sports watch, a dress piece and one other of your choice and you’re good for anything, anywhere. I’d pick this elegant grey one.
I’ve always found an impending deadline really helps concentrate the mind.
Doing regular, boring things that then become an integral part of family life. Like going for breakfast at a local diner at the weekend, or walks in the park. I’m never happier.
I have a very energetic, 18-month-old son. There is no unwinding. And there are very few products that have survived the double whammy of his destructive perpetual motion plus the family move from London to New York last year. However, a gimlet, served in a coupe glass from the 20s, made to my recipe of 3 shots of gin, and one shot each of sugar syrup and fresh lime juice, works wonders.
