This is my second Adexe watch*. When Adexe asked me if I’d love to work with them again I of course said yes. My first watch was the much more feminine Sistine Petite in Rose Gold but this time I selected a watch to give to my husband for our six year wedding anniversary.
Like I said in my previous post I love the idea of a watch as a memento. I like the idea of a timepiece marking time. That’s a nice, circular metaphor.
My husband loves this watch and he’s very picky with watches. He previously worked as a jewellery and watch maker. This makes him a very fussy customer, but he’s impressed with how THEY is built. My husband is not easily impressed. Whereas I just think it’s beautiful and classy.
One of the things I like about the THEY watch that chose for my husband is that I can wear it too. What’s his is mine and all that. Adexe describe why they chose THEY as the name:
“Since the middle ages, THEY has been a non-gender specific pronoun.
The multifunctional collection is designed for those independent to convention and free from conformity. The elegance of the sub-dial placement and contrasting trims radiate versatility.”
I like that, a lot. And it really is a beautiful watch for anybody. It’s sophisticated, sleek and beautifully crafted. My gran used to have an old weather barometer in her hallway (or lobby depending where you’re from) and I was fascinated with all the dials and information. I still love them, I actually have one in my lobby now. I similarly love the face of THEY, it has sub-dials for seconds, day and date. I’m pretty sure a pilot from the 1920s would wear something similar.
Now if feeling like a 1920s pilot isn’t your thing (but why wouldn’t it be?) there’s an amazing selection of watches to choose from. I still regularly wear my Sistine Petite which I got almost a year ago now and it still looks brand new. I genuinely love this brand. You can buy a quality watch, that’s beautifully designed for a reasonable price. You can have a look at the Adexe range here.
