For me there are two brands that ignited the watch fever
Rolex: way back when we were married for 12.5 years we bought each other a Rolex Datejust Bicolor. I still have mine and it’s been a true companion. Never broke down never been opened never been serviced and it still runs perfectly
My wife’s one unfortunately got stolen. But we know who the culprit is. Our daughter who now wears it proudly.
The years to follow we couldn’t afford buying more. We lived our two Rolex watches and were happy with them.
Until few years back two things happened simultaneously; my wife recovered miraculously from a very bad disease and we sold our company at the same time
We wanted to celebrate. Looked at all main watch brands but fell in love with VC. where I bought her the Overseas 2, gold with diamonds and she bought me the Harmony moknphase
That moment really kicked our enthusiasm. We became true VC addicts and our collection has been growing.
