I’m afraid this is probably only a question you can answer. You are in what sounds like a pretty pure partnership, and you probably know the other partners very well. I also imagine this has been discussed, or should have been discussed, when you became a partner in a partnership. If you were simply an employee it’s a different thing. But you are not.

Yes. And we are an LLP

This is why partnership agreements should be in writing - and include language regarding retirement, leaving, incapacity, and incompetency as well as business succession planning. That doesn’t help now, but it is something you should ask for next time.

Best luxury watches? My sister just got her mba and her dream job. For her graduation present she asked for a “boss bitch luxury watch.” I’m not plugged into this scene but want to gift her something truly memorable. For context, my family does major gifts for major life milestones and we ask the person what they want. I just don’t know anything about luxury watches so would appreciate recommendations/advice. Willing to spend up to $10k. My parents delegated to me to select the watch.
