When was the last purchase?
I bought a pair of earrings last Saturday.
What is the most precious purchase?
    That was the first Blancpain watch I bought. When I visited a Blancpain factory in Switzerland ten years ago, I was deeply attracted by the smallest automatic movement in the world that this watch possessed. When I had the opportunity to interview Blancpain in the future, I was wearing this watch to meet Mr. Marc Hayek, President of Blancpain, so this watch is of great significance to me.
