Friday Outfit: Chef

Hello everyone!

One week more we bring you a new Friday Outfit. This week, we bring a profession that lovers of haute cuisine will admire: chefproffesion.

Today we show you quartz watches inspired by the doctor profession within other selected products.

A chef is a trained professional chef who masters all aspects of food preparation and who often specializes in a particular kitchen.

Before seeing the products chosen to complete your style, let's see some curiosities about the chef profession:

- The word chef is an expression of the French term chef de cuisine which means head chef. In French, the word chef comes from the Latin word caput, which means head, and it matches the English term chef, which means boss.

- In English, the title chef in the culinary profession had its origin in the haute cuisine of the nineteenth century.

- The standard uniform for a chef includes a hat, tie, double breasted jacket, apron and shoes with steel or plastic toecap.

- The crossed jacket worn by the chef is usually white to show the chef's cleanliness and is made of a material that repels the heat, and has double breaststroke to avoid serious injuries from burns.

- The chef hat was originally designed as a tall wavy hat called Dodin Bouffant. The Dodin Bouffant had 101 waves representing the 101 ways in which the chef could prepare the eggs.

- Within the kitchens, there is a hierarchy based on the Culinary Guide of the French chef Auguste Escoffier, who defined the different ranges that could be performed.

- The profession of chef is very demanding. The chefs work when others rest, with marathon days of about 16 hours a day. It is also necessary to have a daily control and care of the details.

Below you will see some of the quartz watches that we have chosen for this blog along with the rest of the products in the image.

All the pieces are available in our website and in our boutique in C / Nuñez de Balboa, 90 Madrid. Do not hesitate to come and visit us whenever you wish. It will be a pleasure to welcome you!

Happy weekend!

Looked good on delivery, now looks great with black steel !

I'm really pleased with my new bronze metris...I hadn't seen one in real life due to lockdown but was pleased with it when it arrived. The blue face is really dark...almost black.....but contrasts really well with the bronze case and numerals. The standard leather strap was a little disappointing in colour and fit but £25 for a black steel bracelet and it now looks and feels great!!

I love this pen...perfect weight. Perhaps I would like a more chunkier one soon....still experimenting before i make a bigger purchase

Citizen Promaster NY0071-81E

As a large fan of dive watches, this mechanical promaster variant in titanium, does not disappoint. Exceptionally light, form, fit and function, absolutely fantastic. Much better attention to detail ( indices and rotating bezel alignment with chapter ring) than some Seiko comparable models.
Seemingly on paper a large watch, wears very well, not conspicuous at all in my 5 Ft 7 inch opinion. Great lime, long lasting and running at constant +10 seconds a day.
Definitely recommend this watch and the excellent customer experience of Iguana Sell.

Visconti Van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows Set

A very nice fountain pen feels very nice in the hand, comes well presented with a bottle of ink to start you off. I was kept fully informed of the progress of my order and as such I have ordered a second fountain pen.

Avi-8 P51 Mustang

This is my 2nd watch purchase from Iguana Sell. Due to unfortunate circumstances beyound Iguana Sells hands, I was kept in contact regarding the delivery of my P51 Mustang watch. Heavy snow as well as teething problems due to Brexit delayed delivery, but I have become quite patient over the past few months. The watch is amazing Avi-8 have surpassed themselves. I love the aviation theme previously buying their automatic Spitfire watch.
