#AskHenri: a best friend who wants to be best in show

Henri Moser may be dead, but as a man of irrepressible taste, we've resurrected him to answer your most urgent style questions. This week: a best man with a plan.

“Dear Henri,

Next week I am going to my best friend’s wedding. I want to upstage him. The dress code is white tie. What should seal the deal on my wrist?”

Henri: Ah, watches. The only part of a suit that should shine. Let’s be frank, even as a Pioneer, a wedding is not a time for plastic. Sports and suits – not my cocktail. Anyway, I digress. For this upstaging emergency, Dr Henri prescribes The Swiss Alp Watch Minute Repeater Tourbillon. Not only does it have black crocodile leather strap, 18ct white gold case and dazzling laser-scribed funky blue dial, it has a one-minute flying tourbillon set for 6 o’clock. Happiest day of his life? The groom will likely sob with jealousy.
