A man’s wristwatch has long been celebrated for its blend of design, technology and innovation, but what does a man’s watch reveal about the subtleties of his personality?
The watch is a telling foundation piece, and might hint at his status, lifestyle and character. For instance, a man may choose a Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39, with a red grape dial. The model features a case made of 904L stainless steel, a superalloy highly resistant to corrosion and wear. His choice commands respect, and reflects his appreciation for quality and classic style. He is surely even tempered, but not completely predictable as the unexpected pop of color on the dial suggests.
Or, a man may choose an Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph. He has the utmost respect for Swiss timekeeping precision and its ability to capture 1/1000 of a second, and is known for his rugged, adventuring spirit. The only watch to accompany the first lunar landing and every piloted NASA mission since 1965, he identifies with the independent, pioneering nature of mankind.
Another kind of man may choose the Rotonde de Cartier, for its precision and elegance. A curator and collector by nature, this kind of man finds inspiration in finer details such as the beaded palladium crown set with a blue sapphire cabochon, and exposed bezel. He is creative and daring; a dreamer and risk taker who understands time waits for no one.
A true horologist is committed to timeless tradition, and chooses Patek Philippe’s signature Calatrava, the ultimate in prestige timepieces. He has a philosophy of excellence, and celebrates aesthetics and fine craftsmanship. A connoisseur of design, he is refined and disciplined. This man is a passionate storyteller, and is happy to tell you how the love affair with his Patek Philippe began.
