I find the beauty of wearing a vintage dress watch is all about giving you the feeling of being a grown-up. But with the recent global pandemic, we’ve had fewer occasions to dress up, or even – for some of us – to go to the office. As a shift in our lifestyles began taking shape over the last year, the world has started dressing differently; a little more casual, and comfort has become key. But because of this new wardrobe rotation, I suddenly liked the idea of wearing a dress watch to remind me to sit up a bit straighter when working from home, and to wear it as a reminder that brighter days are ahead, keeping us inspired to look forward to when we can socialize in person once again.
This sleek, chic and perfect fake Audemars Piguet from the 1970s is exactly the type of watch I enjoy having on my wrist when I’m working from home, cocooned in a soft and cozy sweater. The simple but well-edited nature of the design gives it a serene sensibility and makes you feel you’re going along with time, not against it. The watch comes in a beautifully finished slim white-gold case that’s fairly large for its period. It gives the watch just the right amount of presence on my wrist and would on a man’s wrist also. The dial looks like it’s matte black at a glance, but up close, it has a very deep navy blue hue and provides an ideal backdrop for the hands and hour marker accents to offer ample legibility. Thanks to Audemars Piguet’s ultra-slim manual wound movement (the caliber 2001), the case thickness measures only 6mm, which allows for a compact wearing experience when typing on a keyboard or taking a break and having a cup of tea on the sofa. The versatility of this piece is endless, now and beyond. Give yourself a subtle uplift for your wrist by heading over to the Online Shop now.
