1) What 3 words would you use to describe Ernest Borel?
RLF: Romance, Smart and Elegant
2) What does “Romance” means to you?
RLF: Romance needs time, it can be a short spontaneous fluttering feeling but time flows as quietly as everlasting romance. I believe everyone must have romance but romance is not just between lovers, to me you can have romance with your family too.
3) What do you like about Ernest Borel watches?
RLF: There are many different collections and in each collection many different designs too. There are casual, smart, formal and even sporty designs which I can wear on different occasions, functions and events. I always am able to find a watch suitable for my mood or outfit.
4) What do you think makes a Mother (or married woman) really attractive?
RLF pauses to think for a moment and then asks if he can answer this question in Mandarin.
RLF: 进得了厨房，出得了厅堂. Yes, to me an attractive Mummy must have this quality.
Translation – No direct translation but the idiom means that a woman must be able to cook well but yet look good out of the kitchen. In Chinese this signifies a virtuous and capable wife who effectively manages her family life but yet still able to maintain her beauty.
5) Which Ernest Borel watch do you think is most suitable for a Mother (or married woman)?
RLF: I would most definitely pick this watch from the Romance Series III. The square face of the watch is very elegant and stylish. I think it suits a busy Mummy very well. This watch is also part of a couple timepiece range therefore Mummies can buy the male watch for their husbands too.
The Ernest Borel boutique is located at Chinatown Point, Unit 01-21. The collections cater for the medium to high-end markets, offering a wide range of watches. So, Mummies or Daddies, if you are looking for a gift for your other half that is perfectly fashionable and yet romantic; why not drop by the Ernest Borel boutique soon?
