6 Watches For Every Stage Of Your Life
‘At the end, one didn’t remember life as a whole
But as just a string of moments.’
And how cool would it be if you had a string of stunning timepieceskeeping count of those memorable moments of life? Just as those youthfulripped jeans turn into crisplinen pants, and your trade inbottomless beers for a glass of single malt, your watch, too, is an age-appropriate extension of yourself, and your place in life.
So let’s find you the perfect tickers to mark each of those all-important milestones, what say? You can choose from a range of Cartier, Breitling or Rolex watches at Ethos Watch Boutiques, but here are some iconic styles for those special moments.
Your very first ‘good’ watch
Remember those Pokémon and Barbie watches, my dear millennials? Or maybe Mickey Mouse, surelybaby boomers had at least one of those? Well, no, these most definitely do not count as your first ‘good’ watch. And if you’ve never even owned one of those, and depended on a mobile for timekeeping…then so help you God! There comes a time in all our lives when we need to get over the notion of mobile phones as ‘decent’ timekeepers, and moving onto the good stuff –good old watches.Make no mistake, your first watch probably isn’t going to be the mostluxurious, but like all ‘firsts’, it will mean a great deal. Consider your needs, your style, and of course, your budget, and go for something simple and neat. I’d suggest looking at brands like Casio, Michael Kors, Diesel, or Calvin Klein for your first ticker.That being said, it’s a personal choice you’ve got to make for yourself–there’s no one-size fits all.
But here are a few youthful styles to consider:
Men’s: CASIO EDIFICE CHRONOGRAPH
Women’s: Michael Kors Slim Runway MK2284

The watch you get when you buy a good car
Now your first car may not be quite Formula 1-ready, but who says that has to stop your need for speed? And when it comes to watches inspired by race cars, TAG Heuerhas simply no competition. Take this Formula 1 model for example:

With the cool rubber strap looking nothing less than a heavy-duty race car tyre, this is the kind of timepiece that really marks the occasion of your first ‘good’ car purchase. No, not the one your parents got you on your 18th birthday, or that second-hand model that got to through a gruelling first job. I’m talking about your dream car. TAG Heuer’s quest for precision has made waves across the horology market, so there’s never a better choice.
