TAURUS (April 20- May 20)
Powerful and reliable are the first things that come to mind when talking about a Taurian. You love the comforts of the good life and have always proved to be excellent workers and great team players. Taking a bold step in the right direction just the way a Taurus born would do, we’ve chosen the perfect watch for you – the Breitling Colt.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are both curious and clever. The greatest strength of a Gemini-born is the ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly. The athletic TAG Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date is packed with similar features. The entire movement is housed in a 42mm attractive round steel case that oozes class. The white dial has grey indexes, which are etched with luminescent markers to improve readability, and the black and white contrast colour combination increases legibility.

This 42 mm elegant watch combines a classic design with new age technology with equal ease, thus harmonizing perfectly with this unique trait of yours.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are an ambitious lot. Your strength of purpose allows you to accomplish a great deal and your aim for a dramatic flair in presenting yourself to the world is extremely challenging & fulfilling. Making an impression is ‘Job One’ for Leos and sporting the Seiko Astron will admirably do that job. This timepiece is stunningly executed with a chronograph function, a perpetual calendar and a GPS function to obtain the time and date.
Leo’s ruler is the powerful sun. The face of the watch acts as a solar panel which is powered by the energy of light. Moreover, this watch showcases time for 40 different time zones with utmost accuracy anywhere on the globe. Seiko has mastered the ability to make ultimate watches for world travellers. The watch is big at almost 44.6mm. Made of titanium, it has a ceramic bezel and is water-resistant to 100m. The year 2016 brings good news for you as the planets will favour your outgoing nature and zest for life. And your Seiko will always be there to ensure that you enjoy the ride!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
You tend to be practical, meticulous and growth oriented. These qualities drive you towards your distinctive goals and inspire you to do meaningful work in the world. The Longines Master collection epitomizes these characteristics of yours rather well. Unprecedented technological innovation that combines two complications – a chronograph and a moon phase, has been built into this watch. On the 40mm automatic round dial, you will also find a 24-hour counter which is used as a day/night indicator.
Virgos appreciate the beauty of fine details, and that’s why you will naturally gravitate towards this elegant Longines watch. Turning the watch over offers the view of the Longines caliber L678 movement. The soft and brown alligator strap sits comfortably on the wrist.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Librans have an undying quest for fairness, peace and harmony. You are all about the perfect balance, and the obvious choice for you would be the classic Carrera. The TAG Heuer Carrera has a long-standing reputation for providing superb quality mechanical timepieces. Fitted with a Flyback feature, this men’s watch features a 43mm stainless steel case, with the black and gray dial. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has double anti-reflective treatment, essential for easy reading.

The watch has withstood the test of time and evolved to keep up with contemporary aesthetics without losing its classic looks.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpions have great determination, passion and unrelenting motivation. You do not know the word quit, which is why you usually get the job done. Scorpion personalities are bold and have an inherent love of travel; which is why the Tissot Heritage is the perfect watch to take along. What sets this watch apart from the rest is that this is a very innovative globetrotters watch. You can essentially tell the time, at a glance, for all the major cities around the world. The automatic movement is housed in a highly polished stainless steel case, which is tastefully sized at 40mm with a thin bezel that allows the ultra-legible dial to be the star of the show.
This watch will always be your companion on your worldly adventures. Vintage-inspired indices, dauphine hands and a unique display on the dial enhance the sophisticated legibility that a dress watch must have. You are ambitious, self-determined and love creating an edgy look, just like this Tissot!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
As an adventurous and athletic Sagittarian, you need to be ready for any escapade that calls your name — and your companion watch should reflect the same sense of adventure. Saggis are freedom lovers, so they look for clothing and accessories that are smart, comfortable and sporty, and the Panerai Luminor 8 days is just that. Most significantly, it boasts a power reserve of 8 days that is achieved by having not one, but two mainspring barrels in the movement!
You, the Sagittarius born, are keenly interested in obtaining knowledge and display that through your clear thoughts. The utterly uncluttered “sandwich” dial, which glows in the dark is what makes the Luminor instantly recognizable. Water resistant to 300 meters, the Panerai Luminor has a 44mm titanium cushion shaped case and comes with a good looking brown leather strap.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
The sign of the Goat has rather conservative and old school tastes when it comes to fashion. You always want to project the right image and your ambitious streak makes you naturally authoritative — this image probably has something to do with the power and success that you’ve achieved over a period of time. The Baume et Mercier Capeland fits well with this trait of a Capricorn. The 44 mm Capeland chronograph is what you would call a “vintage-style watch” for sure.
This Baume & Mercier watch is often chosen by its owner because it reflects the uniqueness associated with the most precious moments of his life. The Capeland aptly evokes your ambitious side. The self-winding movement features the date, time and a 30-minute chronograph. It comes with a black leather strap with white stitching that adds character to the timepiece. Your greatest strengths as a Capricorn-born are your willingness to work hard and determination to succeed. The Capeland will be a symbol of these strengths, making it one of your most timeless choices.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Your greatest strengths as an Aquarius-born are your intellect, vision and a keen interest in making the world a better place. The square cased Bell & Ross inspired by cockpit instruments, aptly represents some of these attributes. Its clean and simple design with big and bold numbers make it easy to read, and the photo-luminescent coating allows you to read time with ease even at night. Aquarius is an air sign, and for this simple reason, Bell & Ross is the chosen one for you; B&R watches have been inspired by aviation since their inception.
The BR 01-92 uses an ETA 2892 movement. It can withstand water pressure up to 100 meters. This watch makes a great choice for the independent, friendly and quite understated Aquarians.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
You, the Pisces-born, are selfless, spiritual and much focused on the inner journey. You love to help others and do so in the most imaginative ways. And, it’s your feeling of sensibility that wins people over. The pisces symbol is a pair of fish, a symbol that prompts your fondness for water. The Omega Seamaster Professional Diver is the perfect watch for you. Might we add, this watch was sported by Daniel Craig in his first Bond movie Casino Royale!
It is a submersible timepiece powered by the Calibre 2500D Co-Axial Chronometer movement. The watch comes with a helium escape valve and has an intricate yet substantial solid link “Bond” bracelet that has an excellent clasp mechanism. The unidirectional rotating bezel has a ceramic insert that adds character to its look. The handsome Omega Seamaster Diver 300 Co-Axial chronograph pays tribute to Omega’s maritime legacy and is a fitting companion for the Pisces-born (since you love being near a pool or the ocean!).
