My preferred watches tend to lean toward the dressier side. The simplicity of classic dress watches have always been a breath of fresh air to me, having everything a watch needs and nothing it does not. Plus, having so little elements one can play with in terms of the design makes designing a dress watch an art all of its own.

One of the features of a proper dress watch that is often taken for granted is its thickness, or rather, its thinness. Imagine a slim sliver of a watch hiding within a well-tailored shirt from Savile Row, ever ready to present what it was made to do when called upon, which is to simply tell the time. Yet as simple as the task might be, to be able to do this via a beating mechanical heart containing hundreds of minuscule parts—arranged in an efficient manner with super-tight tolerances—rather than with a quartz movement makes it a micro marvel of engineering all by itself

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
