Financial Times: Watts new? Hardly

“He was even still wearing the shell-shaped ring that had always seemed to be a token of his corporate loyalty. It turns out to have been his wedding ring.”

Sir Philip Watts walked into the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal yesterday looking not a day older than when he disappeared from the scene in March 2004. He wore the same glasses, his hair was no greyer and no thinner than it had been. In fact, Watts looked healthier and less stressed than he ever did as Shell’s chairman.

The stiff, sometimes forced smile, with which he ends all his sentences was still there, and his need to break any silence with a joke had not diminished. He was even still wearing the shell-shaped ring that had always seemed to be a token of his corporate loyalty. It turns out to have been his wedding ring.
