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.
