I must say I am not 100% a fan of watches before. But when I worked for a real estate company last year, I got familiar with watches and how they can be subtle status symbols. As a common belief in the office, one can wear the simplest clothes and even flip flops, but if he sports a Rolex, he must be rich. Yes, that's one of the ways to spot a premier client.
Since then, it's been one of my life goals - along with making my businesses the most successful ones in the country, buying my own house, getting a car, etc. - owning a good number of those timeless pieces. These watches, from Rolex to Audemars Piguet to Tag Heuer, are classic pieces that will surely stay stylish for generations to come.
Here are some pieces I'd love to buy, if I have the means currently:
Cellini Dual Time, Rolex
Cellini Date Watch, Rolex
Jules Audemars Chronometer with Audemars Piguet Escapement, Audemars Piguet
Aren't these guys perfect for a modern gentleman?
BUT, there are more pressing matters and higher priorities that should be focused on. And, for me, those are my businesses. I wouldn't want to have a Rolex on my wrist but have my businesses' revolving fund close to zero! Also, I wouldn't want to have a luxury watch or belt or shoes and have a bank account nearing zero. I know some people who are like this, and I am aware of how hard everyday life is for them. So yeah, I'd currently settle for the more affordable ones. For the time being. :)
Good thing we can find affordable alternatives now, as men's stylish watches available at ZALORA are both classy-looking and budget-friendly.
I'm eyeing pieces from Daniel Wellington (still high on the price point, but, man, have you seen how sleek their watches look?) and River Island (affordable and stylish pieces). How about you?
