Dandy does it: Look 4

This was my grandfather's automatic watch. The repair shop advised to have the strap replaced and the body replated, but that would have robbed it of the romance of patina and tarnish marks, would have somehow erased the past.

This dandy decked in a lawn blazer and torn denim knows that, but equally appreciates the new and unexpected. Not totally traditional like Fiat heir Lapo Elkann (pictured on top), he belongs both to the street and to history.

He also knows there is only one accessory to beat his vintage timepiece and complete this outfit.
