Aldo invests the majority of his energy going around, managing clients at both Le Bernardin and Aldo Sohm Wine Bar. This implies his every day observe should be comfortable, refined, and somewhat under-the-radar. He needn’t bother with individuals focused on his wrist while he’s conversing with them about what to pour. This titanium Quai de L’Ile from Vacheron Constantin marks each of the three boxes easily. It’s somewhat of an unordinary watch for Vacheron Constantin, yet that is important for the interest for Aldo as well. The matte titanium case is lightweight and doesn’t get an excess of light, the elastic lash can get destroyed and will not get odd scents (significant, since Aldo’s feeling of smell is basic to his work), and the dial has recently that additional piece of visual interest to keep him locked in. It’s a piece class, it’s a gnawed off-beat, and it’s 100% Aldo.
