An online chat on a preferred social media platform. Two very observant personages go through the fine décolletage of one fine gentleman who happens to stand head and shoulders above the crowd. That is to say, figuratively speaking because his bespoke tailor has been blessed with firm features that make his artistic work a lot less demanding once he has whipped out the measuring tape, measuring up his man for the season ahead. Watches for men are no seasonal affair because if they have been skillfully built, they are more than likely going to outlast the ides of time. Of course, it does help that they are being worn by distinguished gentlemen who take pride in looking after their collections, on their dressing tables and in their wardrobes.
The wardrobes are luxurious walk-in affairs, and why not. Every hardworking, successful man deserves such opulence. He has earned it. There is no secret to his success. What he has merely done is follow a few simple rules of trade. It matters not what trade you are in. For all that readers know, you could just as well be a butcher, baker, or candlestick maker. You like building cupboards perhaps so you refer to yourself as a cabinet maker. Ah yes, that is the proper professional term, although the reference to carpenter also has allure. Because you are a tad more physical than others, perhaps stepping out in to the woods to select your own wood grains, your time piece needs to be a lot more rough around the edges.
Of course, it still keeps good time, no doubt about that. The two very observant personages are good at that. They are able to notice subtle, physical references to the man's persona. He is no brash show-off, why would he be, he does not need to be, so his timepiece appears to sit discreetly just so on his right armed wrist. A traditionalist to the bone, he bucks the trend as all left-handed artistes tend to do, and keeps his timepiece a safe distance from his working arm. It is also like grandfather clock as the two observant fellows notice the roman numerals on his classical watch's timepiece. Ask any young fellow of today's generation what the symbolism signifies and the response is nothing more than quizzical. Not to say that our gentleman is long in the tooth. Knowledgeable, he has good taste too.
