First Watch: A Rolex ‘Date­just’ from my par­ents – it’s still part of my col­lec­tion. Most re­cent pur­chase: IWC ‘Por­tugieser Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar’, but I’ve or­dered the new Rolex ‘Day­tona’. For for­mal oc­ca­sions: Al­ways go for gold. Other brands in your watch wardrobe? My favourites are the Patek Philippe ‘Nau­tilus’, Rolex ‘Day-date’ and IWC ‘Por­tugieser Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar’. Is there a watch that got away? The one-of-a-kind piece that’s sim­ply un­avail­able, like the Patek Philippe ‘Grand­mas­ter Chime’ val­ued at ap­prox­i­mately 2.5m Swiss Francs [$3.4m]. I would have liked one of those.
