Per­fect tim­ing

Top five watches for ev­ery con­ceiv­able oc­ca­sion. L E T ’S GET LOUD T HE C ODES: B R A NDS:

Esquire (Singapore) - - Watches - Over­sized pro­por­tions, state-of-the-art de­sign, and top-notch per­for­mance to boot Richard Mille, Aude­mars Piguet, Hublot, Bell & Ross

If you’re one of those guys still go­ing on about how a per­son just needs one good watch and he’s sorted for life, stop. It’s like footwear. You don’t wear flip-flops any­where but to the beach and those monk straps be­long strictly to the of­fice.

Like­wise, a man ought to wear dif­fer­ent watches to dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions if he wants to be taken se­ri­ously. Think no one’ll no­tice if you’ve been wear­ing the same plain vanilla watch day-in-day-out like some ba­sic of­fice lem­ming? Think again. For purely prac­ti­cal rea­sons, your watch has to fit what you do and where you go; it’s not just the van­ity talk­ing.

At times, you want some­thing smart and for­mal, yet oc­ca­sion­ally, you want to keep things un­der­stated, and then there comes a time when you need some­thing fun and cel­e­bra­tory. In ev­ery life sit­u­a­tion, there’s al­ways a right watch to wear. Here are five for ev­ery con­ceiv­able oc­ca­sion. For those days (or nights) when you’re ready to raz­zle and daz­zle, you’ve got to go for one of those crazy horo­log­i­cal con­trap­tions that are not about time­telling and all about state­ment-mak­ing. This is when your watch should come with all avail­able bells and whis­tles; it is not the time to be coy. So get wristed with any Richard Mille and you’re sorted— in lieu of which, a swanky Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak Con­cept ought to do the job nicely. Hublot, too, is fa­mous for some truly in­sane cre­ations, as is Bell & Ross, par­tic­u­larly with the BR-X1 se­ries.
