Dent & Co White Gold Ministry Chronograph Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Among these well-known individuals is a member of the recent British Renaissance: Simon Cowell. The host of the hit program “American Idol” sports an incredibly attractive White Gold Dent Ministry Chronograph. A photograph of the piece adorning his wrist during a visit to Christopher’s children’s hospice in Guildford, Surrey, is on Dent’s website. There you’ll see actual, physical evidence that Simon Cowell can loosen up. He’s happily posing with two children and pulling silly faces. His Dent sits just inches away from an autographed picture of himself.
Yet it looks to the past too. It clearly reminds the wearer of Big Ben. Were you to stand on the bridge over the Thames, stare up at Big Ben and then glance down at your watch, you’d know they were relatives.
This is an important relation for Americans to recognise. Unfamiliar with the British legacy of fine watchmaking, Cowell may introduce Americans to another resurgent element of British culture. After all, there are few British in the eyes of the U.S. public as often as Cowell is. It isn’t called “American Idol” for nothing. Those that watch carefully may unearth another British treasure.
