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…

  1. What is the story of the watch you bought to mark a special occasion in your life? 
  2. Tell us about the watch you bought because of specific story attached to it?

Our next story comes from Brigitte Makhzani, International PR & Events Manager at F.P. Journe

I asked for a particular watch from my parents for my 18th birthday. It was a rectangular gold Sarcar with a black dial and a diamond at 12 o’clock. I was actually working part-time at the Geneva jeweller, Adler and I fell in love with this watch which I saw every day. Sadly, it was lost a long time ago.

My second watch, another gift, out of love this time, was a three colour gold Bulgari-Bulgari designed by Gianni Bulgari while he was still at the family company.

Of course, working in the watch industry, my taste has evolved and after a few purchases, I finally acquired my most beautiful watch last Christmas, an F.P.Journe Chronomètre Souverain with a 40mm diameter 6N 18K gold case and a guilloché silver dial.
