Adv: Guy Laroche x Mother's Day

The Guy Laroche brand is synonymous with haute couture of the finest craftsmanship. The watch collection clearly takes on these very attributes of the brand as it blends the art of traditional watch making with the concepts of the great European designer himself, Guy Laroche, famed for his fine Parisian elegance.

For Mother's Day this year, my choice of present is none other than a matching pair of Guy Laroche watches for the both of us.

The Guy Laroche Frais L21201 and L21202 watches feature a stainless steel watch casing, indexes and crown, with the 3, 6, 9 and 12 hour markers replaced with Swarovski crystals, adding a glamourous touch to the watch. The date window is set on a textured dial, patterned with flower-like guilloche. The L21201 watch comes with a black textured dial and this has a good contrast over the stainless steel bracelet, while the L21202 watch comes with a white textured dial and stainless steel bracelet. The watch also comes with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and this feature is important as watches of sentimental value should be preserved well, without any blemishes or imperfections.

This pair of Guy Laroche watch has another important attraction to it. The pair looks elegant and sophisticated, capturing the eyes of many due to the excellent use of contrast and is both pleasing to the eye and the perfect gift for our moms.

My mom could immediately identify Guy Laroche when I presented the timepieces to her, and was impressed that I actually knew of this brand. She went on to tell me that she had a Guy Laroche watch when she was a teenager back then.

Each year during Mother's Day, I've been getting her gifts like perfumes, wallets or other girly products that I know she would like/use. No doubt she liked them, but this time round when I presented her both boxes and I said, "Well mom, one's for you and one's for me. Take your pick! Happy advanced Mother's Day" She was honestly delighted, and I could tell it's a different kind of happiness as compared to the previous years because she was happy to receive a sentimental gift that reflects the bond between us and that it's a practical gift we could both wear together. Mom picked the black one in the end because she said she knew I would like the white one more. (I didn't even mention which I would prefer!)  (:

This is the first shoot with my mother, and it was all done in the comfort of our own home. I knew she love the pictures and the watch because immediately upon receiving the pictures from me, she posted them up on her own Facebook. (,: Ever since the photos were released, everyone's been coming to tell me how my mom has really good complexion and porcelain fair skin and that has made her very happy. I wish I had inherited half her fairness.
