Everything you wear, from your sunglasses to your high heels, is a statement about yourself. Your wristwatch is as much a part of your personality as your sense of humour, and it’s as much a part of your style as the way you wear your hair.
So what does your watch say about you?
Simply the fact that you wear one says something. As many people rely on their mobile phones for checking the time and setting alarms, fewer people tend to wear a wristwatch. If you are one who continues to strap or click a watch on each morning, you are more likely to be something of a traditionalist, to prefer the ease of having the time never out of reach, and you don’t want to rely on a digital device that needs charging all the time. Most of all, you love the style and personal expression you achieve through a stunning watch.
In terms of the particular materials and style of your chosen timepiece, this can also hold a few clues about your personality.
Rose gold: Rose gold is currently very on-trend, so if you’re sporting this metal on your watch, it’s likely that you are on-trend too! This pink-tinged metal is a stylish way to deviate from the norm of silver or gold while still achieving a classic look, which suggests you like to stand out from the crowd without going overboard.
Silver: Silver toned metals, such as silver, sterling silver, platinum, white gold, and titanium, look best on cool skin tones (skin with pink or red undertones), but it also tends to match any other colours you are wearing as well. Choosing silver can mean that you are no-fuss when it comes to accessorising, as you don’t have to check if it matches the rest of your outfit. Silver is also somewhat non-traditional as opposed to gold or leather, so wearing it as jewellery shows you’re a little more modern and contemporary.
Yellow gold: Yellow gold is the purest gold, and the most traditional of the metallic looks. Wearing it means you tend to prefer the more classic things in life, and due to its long history of connoting style and elegance, gold wearers are often some of the most stylish of all.
Leather: Leather is both hard wearing and classic, and even when it does begin to show signs of wear and tear, it only serves to give the watch more character. If this is on your wrist, you are probably something of an old soul. Leather straps are also known for their comfort, which suggests comfort is a number one priority for all your fashion choices.
Dress: Dress watches exist to look great, and tend to be part of a collection. Wearing one shows your commitment to looking and feeling your best right down to the last detail.
Fashion: Fashion watches can be dressed up or dressed down, and they come in all sorts of colours and styles. What matters is being on trend, which tends to mean those who wear them are the type of person known for their infinite style knowledge and uncanny knack for spotting upcoming fashion trends.
Traditional: The more traditional watches can be worn throughout life, with nothing but a few maintenance checks to keep them ticking along. Wearing a traditional-style watch shows your own timelessness, that you’re not worried about current trends and that you like to keep things simple.
