when days blend
The last several months have been ruthless in the sense that appointments, meetings and deadlines
have piled up. My days often start extremely early prepping for what’s ahead and then I find
myself running from meeting-to-meeting in this city. Days end late into the night as meeting
minutes are typed up and I ready myself for another day full of assignments and such,
it gets a bit hectic. They say that New York City is the city that never sleeps, but really
London should be categorized as the same.
Sometimes I take living in this city for granted. I forget to stop and embrace. Stop. Think. Breathe.
But when you’re in this professional chaos, it’s almost binding. I think my biggest flaw was not
keeping track of the time as hours and minutes would just go by in a blur…
where classic meets contemporary. where minimalism reigns.
And that’s when I decided a watch was necessary to force me to keep track of all the minutes
going by and reminding me to take a moment for myself. I opted for the ever so chic,
luxurious Swiss made and subtle Läder Black by Larsson & Jennings.
A simple, chic aide-mémoir to stop. think. breathe. And though I opt for more delicate details,
the handmade leather is the softest and proves to blend British watch aesthetics with
Swedish minimalism. In my humble opinion, the absolute perfection of a watch as
functionality meets style and elegance.
