Your Watch Says More About Your Status Than You Think (So They Say)

December 24, 2022

What do you think your watch says about you? Not only do they polish off an outfit, but they also give strangers a glimpse into what type of person you are, and what you’re into. You might not want to hear this but your watch says more about your status than you think. Let’s take a look at this phenomenon below. 

You Love the Finer Things in Life

In the watch hierarchy, Rolex is on top. They’re not the most expensive brand out there, but they’ve snagged the title of creating timepieces for the most successful men on the planet.

Whether you’re powerful or not, wearing a Rolex would sell the illusion. After all, how did you afford to buy a watch that costs as much as a small car?

You Love Traveling

What about Omega? Like Rolex, they’re a brand that focuses on high-end watches that cost an arm and a leg. However, Omega finds a way to include rugged, adventure-related pieces into their lines.

When you wear an Omega watch, not only will you be displaying how loaded you are, but you’ll also be showing people that you’re a sporty individual. 

You don’t need an Omega to do this, however. Brands like Seiko have spectacular dive watches that are great for the outdoors.

You’re A Mature Person

If you’ve read some of our guides, you’d know that even the cheapest watches can look chic. This is most likely what you’re going for if you want to look sophisticated, but haven’t the money for it.

A minimalistic watch made of luxurious materials like leather sells the fantasy. The more muted the colours are, the more sophisticated it would look.

Although MVMT is a brand for younger buyers, many of their pieces fit the bill. What’s so great is the fact that they’re budget-friendly.

More high-end brands like Cartier can get away with looking sophisticated. Everyone around you would know that you’re all business, no play. However, they’re too expensive for most people.

You Care About What Others Think

We can all agree that watches transform an outfit. Usually, the more expensive a piece is, the better it looks. Unfortunately, if you’re on a budget, how can you afford a timepiece that looks like it’s a million bucks?

Brands like Bulova produce premium pieces that are high-quality but not that expensive. They’re the kind of watches that many people who want to wow on a budget go for. Does this sound like you?

You’re Always on The Move

How often do you wear smartwatches? Even though they’re not as good looking as wristwatches, wearing one tells people that you’re going places. Their smart features make life more convenient after all. 

Working out with an Apple watch is amazing. They’re aimed at users who are into fitness and health. So, people will know you’re health-conscious the moment they see one on your wrist. 

Wearing a smartwatch also shows people that you’re techy. If you’re from the younger generation, you’d love this.

Your Job Is Hectic

Most of the time, professionals or those in demanding jobs tend to wear smaller watches. They can’t have anything getting in the way, after all. They also can’t wear anything too extravagant, so they won’t get distracted.

Usually, people who wear small, simple watches will be on the frontlines, like healthcare workers and those in the special forces.

You’re A Watch Enthusiast

A knowledge of horology is important when it comes to watches. The older a brand is, the more reputed their watches are. Watch enthusiasts go especially crazy when there is a story behind them.

Having a watch like this on your wrist would tell people that you’re obsessed with watches. This is pretty obvious when you have a Swiss piece on your wrist. After all, they’re the pinnacle of craftsmanship.


Well, what does your watch say about you? A lot. The type of watch you wear will definitely be influenced by your personality and lifestyle.
