Staying on time

Here’s a little update, just because in the middle of all this travelling it happens that I think a little bit about home and what it feels like to be far away from Switzerland for such a long time. In all honesty, travelling is one of my biggest passions so I really don’t suffer from distance and even jet lag became one of my recent pals. But one thing is for sure, I can’t be more grateful of the values that the swiss culture taught me through the years that I like to bring in on each of my experiences.

I guess, when we speak about values, it’s something personal and not particularly something you could associate specifically to a country for an instance. The values we’ve been taught could have been brought to us by our families, education, environment, friends or even the media. However I like to think that in Switzerland, we do have some cultural standards that have been transmitted from generation to generation and that are instantly part of each and one of us. I wasn’t born there, I arrived in the country when I was 7 and fit in so quickly! That’s the place where I made most of my childhood and adolescence memories and it definitely influenced my personality a lot. That’s also the reason why I have such a strong bond!

I think that people have a very nice conception of swiss culture : it’s all about discipline, punctuality, good business skills and above all an art and craft for quality. This has been certainly proven in the swiss watch making. I had the chance to visit so many incredible watch manufactures and I am definitely sensitive and care about a good watch. It a lifetime piece that doesn’t only accompany it’s owner through it’s day helping him take track of time, symbol of elegance and luxury, but also such a wonderful fashion accessory.

Throughout the years, I have tried many watches. I like to change them, be playful and explore different designs to go along with the outfit I picked that day. I really enjoy trying out watches from fashion brands as they have such a wonderful design to them that goes perfectly well along with the clothing. I particularly love this one from Gucci as it’s such a timeless and iconic piece with it’s horse bit buckle, a symbolic elements proper to the house, that’s still so subtle and beautiful on the wrist. Plus the fact that it’s all metal, makes it so chic and modern, perfect for the day as much as for the night. Hope you guys will enjoy these images!
