Choosing The Right Watch
I have been getting a lot of comments and feedback from people asking me to expand more on identifying the right watches for people. Well for me, wearing a watch should distinguish one’s own brand image. Before purchasing a watch you should ask yourself this question: What do you want this watch to say about you?
Are you looking for a watch that shows that you are fashionable, sophisticated, or elegant?
Examples of fashionable & stylish watches: Brands such as Bulgari, Breitling, Bell & Ross, Dior, Chopard, Catier, and Chanel falls into this category. Rolex, Panerai, IWC, and Audemars Piguet can also be put under this category as well.
Fashionable and stylish watches, in my opinion, are worn more casually. Guys would wear them with a t-shirt and jeans, girls with a blouse and jeans. Fashionable watches can be worn to casual events, clubbing, or just for everyday wear. Wearing a fashionable and stylish watch tells people that you know a thing or two about fashion. You’re hip and young, and always on top of the latest fashion trends
Examples of sophisticated & refined watches: Brands such as Patek Philippe, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and A. Lange & Sohne are all sophisticated and refined watches.
A sophisticated & refined watch is more for the aficionados. It’s not meant for the regulars – it’s meant for affluent and classy people. Wearing a sophisticated and refined tells others that you have an eye for quality. It says that you are classy, sophisticated, and affluent. It can be worn both casual and formal.
Examples of elegant watches: Brands such as Cartier, Rolex, Chopard, Patek Philippe, Piaget, Audemars Piguet, and IWC.
Elegant watches are more formal and dressy. In my opinion, it’s the combination of a fashionable and refined watch put together. Men would normally wear them with a suit, woman with an evening dress. It is worn to weddings, dinner parties, or special events. Wearing an elegant watch tells others that you have a taste for luxury. It shows that not only do you have class but you also have a sense of style.
In my future posts, I will be labeling and giving more details about what watches falls into what categories. And expanding on how & why each watch is worth their individual price tag.
