ANATOMY OF A WATCH: WHO DO YOU WEAR?
It’s no secret that the most prominent and exceptionally crafted timepieces never really go out of style, therefore we at PAUSE decided to do our research and was immediately inspired by a recent blog post concerning what each watch brand says about the wearer and the most timeless watch brands around. Similar to any particular car manufacturer or sneaker, each make holds a certain regard and reputation, so here are the following watch brands that we feel epitomise the word “timeless”:
Rolex is one of, if not the most recognised and respected watch brands in the world, synonymous with success and sophistication. Those that wear a Rolex are instantly considered classy, reputable characters, who appreciate a bold, distinguished style. Numerous celebrities have been spotted wearing Rolex watches including Jennifer Aniston, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Hugh Laurie, Ben Affleck and Christian Bale.
Patek Philippe is all about a display of luxury. Those who wear Patek Philippe are proud of the companies accomplishments and are not afraid to lavishly treat themselves. Celebrities wearing Patek Philippe are Charlie Sheen, John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and Brad Pitt amongst others.
Those wearing Panerai are trend-setters that like to be unique and display a distinctive fashion sense all of their own. Due to the fact that every new Panerai model is different from preceding models and only produced in small quantities, a Panerai wearer appreciates the special rarities in life, while enjoying that they posses a look that is far from the cookie-cutter and is always on the budding edge of fashion. Celebrities spotted wearing Panerai are Ashton Kutcher, Heidi Klum, Stana Katic and Sylvester Stallone.
Breitling is all about durability, reliability and versatility. The Breitling wearer is savvy and enjoys having sleek and classic accessories that are versatile enough to complement any outfit or occasion. Celebrities that have been seen wearing Breitling are John Travolta, Serge Gainsbourg, Criss Angel, Slash and Justin Timberlake.
Hublot is invested in portraying elegance within an air of simplicity. As they are focused on style and functionality, they are a brand favoured by many fashionable sports stars and athletes like Usain Bolt, Alex Rodriguez, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade.
The Swiss Luxury brand IWC Schaffhausen aims to emphasise modern design. Due to its simplistic and clean lines, the IWC is worn by pragmatic individuals with busy lives that require a timepiece that is easily adaptable from casual to formal and anything in between. IWC time pieces can be seen adorning the wrists of Christoph Waltz, Naomi Watts, Channing Tatum, Jeremy Renner and Jamie Foxx.
Tag Heuer is marketed as sporting luxury. Those who wear Tag Heuer are fans of innovation, elegance, sophistication, as well as superior performance and craftsmanship, which is why stars including Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Matt Damon, Tiger Woods, and once again, Brad Pitt wear this piece.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre is for the dignified and dapper fashionable man. Worn by Jon Hamm in his Mad Men role as Don Draper, the luxury time piece is paired with both business and casual looks. Robert Downey Jr. also dons a Jaeger-LeCoultre, as did the late Paul Walker.
