In 1979, my father gave me his watch shortly before he died. It was a Bulova, nothing fancy but it was classic. And solid. Roman numerals. I wore that watch for twenty years and then somebody stole it. It was right around then that I got my first cellphone and descended into the ranks of those miserable creatures who think that telling the time by looking at a phone is healthy and normal.
And then I saw the Égard “What Is a Man” ad. My wife did, too. She said, “you should get a watch from those people.” What is a man? A man is somebody who listens to his wife when she’s right. And she was. She was echoing something my father had taught me—trust a man’s words by his work. I decided to put Égard to the test.
The cost wasn’t high. The watch I got—a VI Class Auto—was about as expensive as a night out with friends at a good restaurant.
I was worried about getting it delivered here—I live in Ukraine—but the company was offering free international shipping and 15% off. I couldn’t lose. Even with the predictable hassle with Ukrainian customs and the brokers Fed-Ex is forced to subcontract with in order to get stuff through customs, the watch arrived intact.
It’s gorgeous. Classic. Great lines. As much as I’d like to think I could handle a watch that can give me the barometric pressure, the time in fourteen cities simultaneously, and a hotlink to a sushi recipe, all I’ve ever really want from a watch is the time where I am and the date.
And this Égard is that and more. It’s also an automatic. I walk down Covid-empty Kyiv streets and my Égard winds itself. The black leather band is as smooth as my wife’s cheek. Roman numerals. Clean lines and a big, clear face that even an old man can read.
Three years from now, God willing, I’ll be the age my father was when we lost him. And maybe it’s growing older, sentimentality taking over, but I don’t think so. This is a quality product. A sensible product. A well-crafted product. And a fine-looking piece of work. And you don’t have to be an international investment banker to afford one. It’s not sentiment to offer your trust to somebody who does good work. I’m talking about Égard: Their work passes the test.
My gratitude from Kyiv for this beautiful timepiece. After all these years, you’ve put a watch back on my wrist and delivered a powerful reminder of my dad—a good man by any measure.
