Watches are one of the most collected luxury items in the world. Wristwatches come in every shape, size, color, movement, and price. An extension of who you are, the watch you wear tells a lot about you. Watches speak of class, taste, punctuality, and functionality. For watch enthusiasts, it is important to own a variety of timepieces. To wear a watch is to tell a story, each one has it’s own unique and exciting allegory. A piece of art, a watch displays artistic and technical excellence. As a collector, one should own at least seven watches for every day of the week, each timeless and classic.

Below is a selection of seven wristwatches from some of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers. Each watch has it’s own story, and should be worn with knowledge, as well as love, of the piece.
