Souvenirs from Paris

Oct 01, 2018,14:19 PM

A visit to this romantic city is always nice, when your love one got some souvenirs.

First time also to Place Vendôme and I must say it’s a very “dangerous” place for your wallet 😂

Not to forget the 1st encounter with the Vlad himself, a “dangerous” but must do trip too 😉


I tried the Large size but it didn’t speak to me

The Drive Extra Flat is something I always like to try on after passing the first Drive but in this case, Santos medium won.

I didn't spend any money the last time I was at Place Vendome! Well... that's because the hotel got all of it! The Park Hyatt was very enjoyable during my visit!

My stay at Grand Hotel Du Palais is not bad too...

Location is awesome, just next to Louvre and Saint Honore. ...  

I remember you have trouble finding Hermès belt?

Go to Lisbon, they have a whole rack for you to choose 😊 ...  

Not me...

I'm up to my ears in them! And I don't like using them as the logo is too obvious. Besides... Roland Iten is the way to go...

Nothing says Paris like a Cartier....

Great souvenir, Raymond! I sure hope you and your wife enjoyed many lovely strolls around town to make your time in Paris even more special. We too have a ritual that whenever we visit Paris, we get souvenirs at Camille Fournet. Custom straps for the both... 

Indeed buying in Europe has its benefits.

But not for the watches which are in demand because you cannot find any 🤣 Ladies have great selections. Thank you Alex.

Actually, large looks good on you as well.

Very nice gift , congrats to your Boss 😉

It will allways remeber here to your stay in Paris . Nice Goyard too 👌🏻. Fine taste

That’s her reason too 😁

She’s starting to go “indie“ for bags, heard this brand Goyard has better quality than major brands. Thank you, Watchonthewrist🙏🏻

Hi Raymond, mine says hi..

... I decided to go for the medium even without trying the big bro, change the strap to a matte green and here we are a wonderful watch which also in terms of dimension echoes its past siblings Truly happy about the new arrival home I believe it will be s...  

The green looks good 👍🏻

Looks like I can “steal” the watch if put on a leather 😬 Thanks for the photos and response Luca.

My Santos is meant to be shared with my Wife.

So just put back the links (I can do it in seconds without any tool) or buy your own strap and buckle.

That’s what I also like about this design...

Not much risk and some skills, not having to scratch the watch.

Looks good on you! [nt]

Well done, man! [nt]
