We all love a great story – they are at the heart of everything we do at MrWatchMaster. We seek out the best stories connected to watches and bring them to life.
Our series, The Story Of Your Watch, gives you an insight into the stories that motivate people to choose a specific watch and the special occasions they celebrate asking two simple questions…
- What is the story of the watch you bought to mark a special occasion in your life?
- Tell us about the watch you bought because of specific story attached to it?
Our next story comes from Antonio Menassa, Founder of professional diving watch brand, Trieste Watches
My first serious watch was a Rolex Explorer II which was a joint gift from all of my relatives to celebrate achieving my Bachelor Degree. We travelled to Lugano from Milan to buy it. At the time, the Swiss prices were 10% cheaper than the Italian prices. We ended up going twice; once to bring the watch, the other bringing the box without wearing the watch, to avoid be stopped at customs!
I love space and could not resist the temptation to buy the iconic Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch which I chose for its rich history and connection with the Apollo missions.
