Valentine’s Day – A Norwich Resident article

Press

As you may know, ‘Mr Oakleigh’ writes a regular column in the luxury lifestyle magazine ‘The Norwich Resident’ (http://www.norwichresident.co.uk).

In February 2015 the article was called ‘Valentine’s Day’ and here it is:

Valentine’s Day

So it’s February and that means Valentines Day and presents.

When one researches watches as gifts, what often comes up is that it has some deep psychological meaning – a snipe about your partner being late perhaps…

Now a very high profile watch gift recently passed between a high profile couple when Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt this £2m 1952 Patek Philippe.  Now they’re clearly wealthy but that still seems an awful lot of money just to make a point – even for Branjelina.

I can’t help thinking that a more likely motive for giving a watch is that you want your partner to have something enduring, inherently valuable and that makes them think of you every time they look at their wrist.

Ladies, I reckon this diamond dialled Rolex Datejust fits the bill nicely don’t you?
