Lost and found

New Straits Times - - Sixteen - Aznim Ruhana Md Yusup aznim.ruhana@nst.com.my

THERE are days, when we do not know our place in the world, fig­u­ra­tively speak­ing. Where we are is not where we want to be, and where we were could be far away from where we will be.

But some­times, the fear and trep­i­da­tion of get­ting lost and stay­ing lost are re­placed by ex­cite­ment and ac­cep­tance. You are ex­actly where you are meant to be.Phys­i­cally speak­ing, we have maps to tell us where we are. And the beauty of maps such as this one on Mont­blanc’s Her­itage Spirit Or­bis Ter­rarum watch, is that it makes some­thing so large like the world it­self into some­thing more man­age­able. Though de­tails are lost in the minia­tur­i­sa­tion, it’s enough to make you won­der and makes you want to wan­der.

This spe­cial edi­tion time­piece is an­chored at the North Pole and Geneva gets pride of place on the dial.

The Swiss city is the head­quar­ters of the United Na­tions Chil­dren’s Fund (Unicef), the United Na­tions or­gan­i­sa­tion that Mont­blanc is rais­ing money for through the watch’s sale.

It will fund the ed­u­ca­tion of mil­lions of chil­dren so that they too, may won­der and wan­der.
