Thank you very much for reading [Watch recommended by Jackroad Staff]. I’m Abe currently working as manager in Jackroad. I hope you enjoyed the other articles written by Jackroad staff.
This time, I may change the topic of the article little, and talk about how I got attracted to the watches. In later article, I, as the manager in Jackroad, want to illustrate my thoughts about the watch.
But, since the title of the articles is about [Watch recommended by Jackroad staff], I will try my best to recommend you two watches that I like. I hope you enjoy the article.
Since teenager, I always had passion about specific things. From art to music, I always participated on some hobby without worrying about time or money. Among those, watch became part of my life naturally. Watch is great agency to express oneself just like other fashion items.
My first encounter with the watch began thirty years ago. When I was an elementary school student, I was a little sophisticated boy who tried to choose the fashion item by alone.
What I used is Casio model with a calculator. At that time, I highly valued the brand.
My passion about fashion item increased year by year. At the time that I went to hairdresser art school, I always had a number of friends who had strong interest at fashion item.
At that time, I was using swatch brand, which can give many variations in day. I also remember vividly that I had bought many belts according to the mood and style of the day.
When I started working as a hairdresser, I also had passion about music. Then, I went to United States to study music and had performance in fancy live house. The life in United States was full of excitement and thrill.
After coming back to Japan, I bought Rolex oyster date which were released on my birth date year. This is my first luxury watch that I bought. I didn’t have specific appetite on the brand, but I was going through bubble economic period in Japan and Rolex was very attractive.
This watch also had special value to me since it was released on my birth date.
To think about it, the encounter with this model triggered me to get into the world of watches.
I purchased Rolex watch from the grocery store, which later became the starting place of Jackroad. At that time, they had vintage furniture and miscellaneous goods lined up in the store, and in small corner, they displayed the watches. Then you see, it’s quite different place now, right?
I also carefully choose not only what I wear, but also what my family wear-I present the watch as a gift.
I gave watches as presents to my wife and children. It is very fun to think about what to give to my family, since I always think about my family.
Whenever I find good presents in business trip, I purchase it without any second thoughts. I give presents to family in not only at the time of anniversaries or events but also daily life.
When I see my family is wearing the presents, I feel utmost happiness.
I want to continue this feelings in my current occupation, too.
As the store manager of Jackroad, and as an individual who loves watch, I want to give best suggestion to the customers.
In the next article, I would like to talk about my one of favorites watches.
Then, I hope to see you again next time.> > Vacheron Constantin
