Celebrate one of life’s biggest moments with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons’s edit of the watches designed to help you make your way in the world
There are three kinds of ‘first watch’. There’s the kind you get when you’re five years old and your parents are teaching you how to tell the time. This is usually a cheap, plastic piece in a lurid colour. You will break it, after all.
Then there’s the watch that marks the point where you move into sentience, typically around the time the teenage years hit. This is the watch that begins to identify you, or at least, show how you identify yourself. A Swatch, perhaps. These days, a basic smartwatch.
And then there’s the watch that says, ‘I have arrived, and I mean business’. This comes as you mature into adulthood, perhaps when you leave school and get a job, or when you graduate from university, eager to take on the world and make something of yourself.
For this moment, you’ll be looking for a healthy dose of gravitas. A considered purchase to accompany a person of great potential. It might coincide with a big birthday, or even a marriage, but essentially, this is the watch that fuels your ambitions. This is when a quality Swiss timepiece becomes the go-to.
At Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, we offer a wide selection of luxury brands and watches to suit a comprehensive range of budgets. Here, we’ve curated an edit of six stylish pieces designed to accompany you as you begin the time of your life.
