Alles tickt, tickt im Takt


Wristwatch from Le Cachôt

Najbolji deo neplanirane kupovine u Paraliji je definitivno ovaj ručni sat. Već neko vreme želela sam jedan okrugli u zlatnoj boji pošto u poslednje vreme više volim zlatnu nego srebrnu (jedini koji sam imala do sada je četvrtasti Festina sa crnim kaišem), i poželela sam da imam još nešto što predstavlja osobinu koju cenim i kod sebe i kod drugih - tačnost. Kako je mojim kriterijumima teško udovoljiti mislila sam da ću dugo čekati dok pronađem idealan za sebe. Pored toga, pošto imam relativno sitnu ruku satovi u veličinama koje se češće nalaze u prodaji na mojoj ruci izgledaju kabasto i glomazna narukvica je celu proguta, i zato mi je izbor još ograničeniji. Međutim, dok sam razgledala zlatare u Paraliji ne očekujući da pronađem bilo šta, za oko mi je zapao upravo ovaj model koji nije mogao biti savršeniji čak i pošto sam ga stavila na ruku. Znala sam da je u tom trenutku morao biti moj i da mi pristaje tačno onako kako sam zamišljala.
Sama narukvica mi je bila preduga pa je morala biti skraćena za nekoliko karika, ali u trenutku kada mi je kopča konačno oglasila ono slatko: "klik!" oko zgloba, bila sam sigurna da bi bilo gotovo nemoguće da, barem u skorije vreme, nađem sat koji je moja srodna duša.


The best part of the unplanned shopping in Paralia is definitely this watch. For a while I've been wanting to have a round one in gold since I prefer gold to silver lately (the only one that I had so far is the square-shaped Festina with a black belt), and I wanted to have something else to reflect the quality I value in both myself and other people - punctuality. Since my criteria is hard to satisfy I thought that I was going to wait for a good while before finding an ideal one for myself. Aside from that, since my arms and hands are relatively petite, watches in sizes that one usually comes across in stores look too chunky on my hand and the bracelet literally eats it up, so my choices had to be narrowed down even more. However, as I was looking through some golden jewellery shops in Paralia, not expecting to find anything doing so, this model caught my eye and it couldn't be any more perfect even after being put on my hand. At that moment I knew that it had to be mine and that it fitted me exactly as I pictured it.
The bracelet itself was a little too long for me so it had to be shortened by a couple of links, but in the moment the buckle gave that lovely: "click!" around my wrist, I was sure that it would be nearly impossible for me to, at least anytime soon, find my soulmate watch.
