What Does Your Watch Say About You?
By Amanda Evans | 4 minute read
In the wonderful world of horology, there’s a watch to suit our dreams and desires, our lifestyles and needs and also one to suit our personalities. Just like a fashion statement, the timepiece that adorns our wrists also makes its own statement and says a lot about our character and the type of person that we are.
Whether you’re bold and brave, free-spirited and playful, shy and understated or confident and unassuming, there is a timepiece to reflect all manner of personality traits. Finding a timepiece to suit you and encapsulate your being, grants you with the chance to tell people a little about who you are without even saying a word. A timepiece is a window to your world, presenting the opportunity to say, “This is me”.
We’ve chosen some of our favourite timepieces that have inspired us to think, what does your watch say about you?
Rolex Cellini Moonphase
This is me – Curious and Refined
This classy Rolex Cellini Moonphase has a dress-watch aesthetic that radiates elegance. Timeless in its appearance with subtle details and a vintage appeal, the Rolex Cellini has a unique charm. The 39mm 18ct Everose Gold case with its double bezel, domed and fluted adds a touch of distinction. The white lacquer dial features a distinct blue enamelled disc illustrating the full moon and new moon at 6 o’clock and the date is displayed around the dial circumference, indicated by a centre hand with a crescent tip. Presented on a brown leather strap, this timepiece is powered by a perpetual, mechanical and self-winding movement. Although remarkably detailed, this stunning timepiece retains a classy and clear-cut appearance, perfect for the curious and refined gentleman.

Bulgari Octo Finissimo
This is me – Distinctive and Unique
The 40mm titanium case of this Octo Finissimo combines a unique octagonal design inspired by the 310 AD Roman Messentius Basilica and houses an incredible mechanism with up to 55 hours power reserve. Pushing the boundaries of watchmaking, this exceptionally thin case is just 5.15mm thick with the self-winding movement just 2.23mm thick. This exceptional mechanical feat does not compromise on design, with a hand-decorated calibre visible through the transparent caseback, and a titanium crown set with ceramic.

With a 43mm case with black DLC steel sandblasted casing, an ultra-black ceramic bezel and grey anthracite dial with date window at 4 o’clock, it stands out courageously on the wrist. The yellow stitching on the black leather strap is a tribute to Senna’s signature colours, also highlighted on the dial and bezel.
