The first Christmas my now husband and I had together, he bought me a watch. He asked what I wanted and I said I could use a new watch … I expected him (being in his mid-twenties and all) to present me with a watch from Fossil … maybe even from Swatch.
Instead, he presented me with a classic style from Citizen. I was stunned. And can you believe that ten years later, I still wear that watch every single day? I’ve never even had to replace a battery because it’s powered by solar energy. It’s amazing.
But then, just a few days ago, it suddenly stopped ticking. Thankfully, the jeweler was able to send it away to be fixed, but I realized immediately how lost I was without a watch.
Yes, I know many people use their cell phones to keep time, but to me, it’s just not the same as a watch.
Now, had they not been able to fix it, I would have been completely distraught … after all, I do have a sentimental attachment to that watch. But I also would have immediately started shopping for a replacement that was just as classic in design and just as pretty.
