What A Vintage Watch Brand Says About You

Just like the clothes you wear and the car you drive, the vintage watch brand you adorn on your wrist can say an awful lot about you and the type of person you are.

In fact, as it is steeped in decades of history, it can say far more than your clothes, car, haircut, and profession put together!

Patek Philipe

The Patek Philipe vintage watch brand is worn by the Inspector Morse’s of this world — i.e. the type of people who are disciplined perfectionists that expect their own high standards to be met by those around them.

They drive classic, sophisticated cars, are experts on their tipple of choice and enjoy, yes enjoy, spending their free type doing the cryptic Times crossword. Regarded as a true gentleman by all that know them, a Patek Phillipe person is pleasant and inspiring to be around, that is, when you can get them to come out from their studies.

Rolex

There are two types of people that wear a vintage Rolex watch, and you’ll soon know them and the difference between them.

The first is the attention seeking ‘bling’ wearer, not unlike say Kanye West, who is also often seen screeching round corners in their Porsche in an attempt to be noticed.

The second, however, is the true Rolex lover — someone who has managed to achieve great things and is now reaping the well-earned rewards by adorning a classic vintage brand. They enjoy Rolex not only for its beauty, but also for its unique history and functionality. They are suave and enjoy the finer things in life, and like to, when no one is looking, stand in front of the mirror and imagine they’re Bond, James Bond.

Tag Heuer

Tag Heuer is the vintage watch brand of choice for the Bear Grylls’s that roam amongst us. These men are true sport enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies that never feel better than when they’re pushing limits, whether in the office or on cliff faces.

Found more often in urban areas than rural settings, the hobbies of Tag Heuer wearers often include base jumping or watching the footie on TV. They’re not particularly interested in showing off or making a statement; they’re in it for pure self-indulgence and enjoyment.

Breitling

The Breitling vintage watch wearer will have undoubtedly started their career at an early age, possibly even in the playground.

Since then they have gone on to form and build bigger and bigger empires. They have a hugely dominant personality and like everyone around them to hear what they’re saying, no matter how unimportant it may be. Think Alan Sugar, for the more refined Breitling vintage watch brand wearer, and Del Boy Trotter after winning the Lotto, for the more obvious and ostentatious types.

F P Journe

The absolute, and I mean absolute, epitome of a gentlemen is one who wears the F P Journe vintage watch brand. Someone who is typically older in years, but who has aged with grace and dignity.

They are clean cut, don’t flaunt their wealth, and prefer a tailored but casual look over the more formal suit and tie. They are reserved but friendly, however, they typically only come out at night and are only to be found in the most exclusive and prestigious of places and gatherings.
