The right timepiece for the right occasion transcends time, ages with class and oozes sophistication.
Let's be honest: telling the time is a mere convenience of the haute horlogerie masterpiece you choose to adorn your wrist with.
Your choice of luxury timepiece is a statement of intent. A statement that defines your philosophy of style, mood and appeal.
With the high-end watchmaking industry throwing out a plethora of ever more daring and intricately designed pieces, it's important to know which watch to strap on, and when.
Whether it's a classical analog, a glitzy quartz or a complicated mechanical timepiece, the saying often espoused in fashion circles stands to testament: it's not the individual components, it's how you put them together that counts.
Indeed, getting your whole look to dance to the same rhythm of your ticker is imperative if you are to optimise the aesthetics appeal your watch offers.
Here, our fashion team captures the range of styles you need to complement the various statements your timepiece can make.
