Yesterday I walked along a random jeweler here in Amsterdam, with beautiful watches in the window.
One of them was an IWC. It was a beautiful timepiece, with a black leather strap, and if I had the money I would buy it immediately!
Back home I did some research on that specific IWC Watch. On the IWC website if found the model that I saw in the shop window of the jeweler. The model’s name is Portofino Hand-Wound and first appeared on the market in 1984. Now 28 years later it is still a beautiful watch with a classic silhouette that will last for ages. Maybe it is the platinum case in combination with the moon phase display. Or maybe it’s the black alligator leather strap (other straps are also available), but this is one sexy watch!
At a certain age every man should own a watch like this. I hope I will when the time is ripe.
For now all I can do is dream about it.
It is good to have dreams, no doubt about it. It is also good to make these dreams come true. Working hard for something you really want is perfectly acceptable. But don’t forget to dream during your work. This will keep you focused. Some websites you should visit once in a while, to keep your dream alive.
One day, after working hard for years (or maybe days, weeks, depends on your job and background) you might be able to buy one of the items of your dream-list.
I love this site, Vladi Private Islands. Many of you may know the site already, but it is worth remembering. I found a nice little spot on this planet where I can relax and hang around and do nothing. These spots often come with a price, but this one is acceptable (althought there are much cheaper properties on the website).
Think of this: “This Cay is set in one of the most beautiful areas of the Bahamas, the North Bight of Andros. Imagine a sea of turquoise waters as far as the eye can see. Views of small islands sprinkled on the horizon, faint lights of Mangrove Cay in the evening and a cool ocean breeze coupled with complete privacy provides the setting of this private island.”
Ok, you need to build a cottage, but that shouldn’t be problem. Building a cottage is also something a guy should be able to do. Or at least have someone do it for you.
Just imagine, flying there, landing with your small private waterplane. Enjoy a nice cool gin-and-tonic (ofcourse you have electricity on your island) and sit on your own beach. Damn, wouldn’t that be great?
