A Family Mystery About A Watch
The grandson Carl-Johan Gadd travelled the world to find clues of his grandfather’s elegant wristwatch whereabouts, as the beloved timepiece just disappears from the family photos in the mid-1960s and no one knows what happened to it.
He travelled to his grandfather’s old neighbourhoods from Murray Hill in New York, Altona in Hamburg, Chelsea in London, St Germain in Paris to Kowloon in
Hong Kong. With no luck anywhere, he finds himself in a bar in Geneva thinking of the missing timepiece when he suddenly hear his grandfather’s voice saying:
– Do it yourself!
And that was the start of Knut Gadd and the adventures elegance in their watches.
