I am 29 years old and sometimes I feel as though I have accomplished nothing. Sure I’ve got a job and a college degree, not to mention a few high end watches but honestly in decades and centuries past I would have accomplished so much more by now. Take for example the Chopard watch that has become a valuable part of my collection in recent months. When I look at this gorgeous watch I am almost instantly reminded that way back in 1860 Louise-Ulysse Chopard founded the Chopard luxury watch, jewelry and accessory company at the age of 24. I could barely run my mouth at 24 let alone a successful company.
Obviously the original Chopard has long passed on, but that he built such a respected company that would be able to so easily withstand the test of time is just stunning. The company was founded on the principal of trying to find new ways to innovate the watche industry. The time period of course that this company springs from was a time of huge growth in the production of watches, particularly in Switzerland where Chopard originates. Unofficially some might call the late 1800’s a golden age in Swiss watch production. A golden age that a 24 year old was able to partake and partially fuel.
Next month, thousands of students will be receiving their hard earned diplomas. In fancy ceremonies and giant receptions, they will be told that they are starting a new journey. That they are now an essential part of the working society. And they will be facing the challenges of “real life.” As a family member of a graduate, you are probably looking for a graduation gift that can show how much you appreciate their efforts and offer them a glimpse into this real life. The perfect gift to do that is a Baume & Mercier Watch. Their elegance and sophistication offers an introduction into what the graduate’s aspirations should look like. By getting them this luxury watch, you are setting their standards high. And doing that could only help them. Plus, a Baume & Mercier, or even an Ebel, Concord, Cartier or any other luxury watch would surely be of value once they start interviewing. Just showing a glimpse of that luxury watch during an interview implies to the employer that the recent graduate means business (and is probably ready to do business as well.)
Now is the time to start browsing for the perfect graduation gift for your family member.
