Tak­ing Care

Bespoke - - DUBAI WATCH WEEK -

Though it’s nowhere near as time con­sum­ing as main­tain­ing a boat or a house, be­ing the proud owner of a high-end time­piece does still come with cer­tain re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and these were dis­cussed at an Horo­log­i­cal Fo­rum called ‘The Af­ter­math of a Pur­chase’. The topic ruf­fled the feath­ers of a panel that in­cluded Gian­franco Ritschel from the Fon­da­tion de la Haute Hor­logerie, who dis­closed his con­vic­tion that after-sales must be an in­te­gral part of the watch ex­pe­ri­ence. Later the panel revealed a una­nim­ity in sug­gest­ing all watches should be taken back to their man­u­fac­tur­ers ev­ery two years for a check-up, pol­ish, clean and some fresh lubes. So, go ahead and add that to your cal­en­dars.
