Who remembers graduation day or the first day after moving out of your parents' house? The first phone you purchased with your own money? The first time you treated your friends for dinner or a round of drinks at the bar?
These things that separate children from adults: independence, self-indulgence that is grounded in financial freedom. While older generations likely find the toils of adulthood now tedious and demanding, the ability to pay one's own utility bills and car insurance still retains a little spark of excitement for the Generations Y and Z. We are, after all, the generations with a higher life expectancy but a lower probability of purchasing a house before turning 40. So, the milestones that previous generations used to indicate success in 'adulting' have changed. We have to make our own.
One tradition that has yet to become outdated: the inheritance of heirlooms. It is a beautiful custom that preserves an identity -whether it's that of an individual or the family as a whole - and passes along with it a myriad of stories and memories. But, of course, these heirlooms were once new. They were someone's 'first'.
More and more frequently, these younger generations are striving for early autonomy, going to university at 18, working menial jobs in their mid-teens, and buying their own technology. This includes treating themselves to gifts upon reaching new milestones such as a luxury watch for graduating.
Enter Blenheim Watch. We recognize that students and young adults starting out don't have the spending power they aspire to have, which is why we keep our prices reasonable; we don't want to deter any recent grads from adorning themselves with a splendid new timepiece. And we certainly don't want to prevent anyone from experiencing that thrill of investing in their very own 'first'. A first that, thanks to premium quality parts and technology, will last generations and can become an heirloom in and of itself.
Like you, Blenheim Watch is a young, passionate entity just starting out in the world, and we want to look out for our customers, to lend them a helping hand in achieving their goals. Choose Blenheim as your first watch. Maybe to compliment your first suit. Maybe to accompany you to your first real job interview. We will be with you through it all, helping you go beyond your potential and into the adult world.
