What’s in a Name?
High end luxury watch makers, like Gucci and many others, have created well recognized brand names. Over the years, designers have learned that a solid reputation is the quickest way to getting and keeping our business. We are creatures of habit, and once we fall for a certain brand, we usually stick with it, at least for a while.
The brand we wear, whether it is in clothing, accessories, handbags, or timepieces signifies something about our personality and status in life. It gives others a certain impression of us, and we like that. When we go out into the world, the way in which we present ourselves, is the indicator for how we will be received by others. A wrist watch is one of the first things people will notice about what you’re wearing. No matter which brand you wear, all famous luxury watch makers have many varieties to choose from. Each has a distinct style and each makes a statement about the wearer. What might your timepiece say of you?
I. If you wear a small, delicate watch, it may be interpreted that you are quiet and demure. You may not always want to draw attention to your self, and you choose simple accessories.
II. Watches made of durable rubber materials, and which are full of functionality may tell others that you’re a sports enthusiast. You like physical activity and you spend time outdoors or in the gym.
III. If your watch is encrusted with diamonds, you are definitely sending the message of success and opulence. Watches, such as these show that you like the finer things in life.
IV. Do you wear a watch, with an oversized dial? These watches definitely draw your eye. They are worn for one reason, and one reason only, to get attention.
V. Maybe you wear a brightly colored timepiece. If this is the case, you are probably sending the signal that you are fun and outgoing.
VI. Do you gravitate toward gold, steel, or leather watches? Even this tells us a little of what you’re all about.
In any case, the watch you choose will reveal a little bit about you. The next time you make a watch purchase, pay close attention to the styles and brands, which catch your eye. Maybe you will learn something new about yourself, or just maybe you will change the way in which the world sees you.
