Watch Of The Week



Watch of the week is back and back with a bang as I’m excited and honoured to announce that my watch of the week is now brought to you by Keanes Jewellers. I’m so delighted to be collaborating with Keanes and I couldn’t start this any other way than bringing you a Rolex as the first watch of the week from Keanes. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 is up first as it’s a great contender for the only watch you’ll ever need. There’s a concept in the world of watch lovers that’s referred to as ‘only one watch’. For the majority, this is better known as ‘normality’. But if you’re the sort of person who has a watch for work, one for the weekend as well as one for special occasions, there’s a good chance the thought of committing to just one will give you the willies. How could you choose? Can you live without a chronograph? And do you go for fine finishing or reliability? Well, allow me to humbly suggest that all you really need a watch to do, is tell the time. Everything else is superfluous. I’d also argue that you need a watch that can handle the daily rigours of regular wear and still scrub up OK. It also needs a timeless style that won’t look out of place on your wrist in 50 years’ time. Not an easy set of criteria, but the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 more than nails it. Priced at €5350, it's an entry point into the storied brand for many but if you could only ever have one watch, you could do a lot worse than one of these.
