Here’s our easy guide to finding the best luxury watch that resonates with your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Personality Traits: Bold. Courageous. Assertive. Dominating. A born visionary. Risk-taker.
As a fiery Aries, you’re well-suited to ostentatious luxury watches that set a solid first impression. Your extroverted personality matches well with a royal Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date timepiece in 18ct yellow gold that you’re sure to carry with poise. This prestigious piece made its debut in 1956 as the first waterproof and self-winding chronometer wristwatch to feature a modern calendar. Today, it symbolizes the epitome of luxury.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Personality Traits: Trustworthy. Loyal. Determined. Reliable. Patient. Stubborn.
Ruled by element Earth, Taureans are well grounded in reality. You appreciate beauty and you love indulging in luxury—but your approach is more practical than whimsical. Your solid and stable energy goes well with a classic Chopard L.U.C XPS timepiece. Features a brown alligator leather strap, 18ct rose gold crown, and a self-winding mechanical movement. The minimal and old-fashioned appeal it gives off perfectly matches your zodiac sign’s vibe.

One of the best vintage watches for collectors is the three-hand Omegas, especially the early Seamasters. Its sophisticated design and slim case makes it the perfect dress watch.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Personality Traits: Responsible. Grounded. Ambitious. Hard-worker. Wise. Confident.
As a Capricorn, your independent personality could make you seem extremely private, and you may prefer your own company.

You’d be happier with a conventional timepiece that’s a classic, but not too boring. We’re thinking of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Classic Monoface watch. Renowned for its Art Deco lines, the watch comes with a reversible back which can bear a secret engraving!
