There’s no such thing as a selfless good deed. If you’re a Friends fanatic, then you would remember Phoebe and Joey putting the theory to the test. What they concluded after a series of hilarious realisations: anything you do for others, no matter how benevolent or charitable, does end up inevitably being a feel-good factor for yourself. What I’m getting at is, since the whole concept of gifting has effectively been busted as a ‘selfish good deed’ then you might as well take it to the next level.
While nothing under the sun can ever really equate to all the things our parents have done for us, a great present and a whole lot of love is the next best thing you can give back. And of course, it doesn’t hurt anybody if it’s something that turns out to be hand-me-down, meaning, your parents hand it back down to you! Here’s your chance to create your next family heirloom –a beautiful luxury timepiece.
Luxury watches are always a great option as gifts, especially so for our parents’ generation. Before the age of smart watches and digitally enhanced timekeepers, they grew up in a time when a luxury timepiece held immense value, prestige and history. Trust me, your parents are going to perfectly understand the value of a luxe timepiece. And when it comes to real value, a Bregeut is what you need.
As for where to get them, you can approach certified retailers of Breguet Watches, like Ethos Watch Boutiques, to purchase your Breguet online or at a showroom. Breguet’s got a great collection of classic models just perfect for gifting your parents and in my opinion, Ethos probably has them all.
