Mid-January is usually when my tolerance for Winter starts to decline drastically. Up until Christmas Winter time flies by, then I am caught in the holiday spirit surrounded by my loved ones, start the new year with the best intentions and get excited about a bit of snow and a crisp blue sky in the mountains. However, after the 11th round of slushy snow and rain in the city, I am over it. Let alone the fact, that I have been in bed with a cold for the past two days and woke up to the side-mirror of my car gone thanks to a hit and run. Monday blues? Most definitely!

Aside from a serious case of the Monday blues, I am also over Winter in terms of getting dressed in the morning. I have been living in the same boots, coats and sweaters for weeks now. All of which I love, don’t get me wrong. Still, I would love to change things up a bit. Add a bit of linen, a denim jacket instead of those heavy coats or wear my favorite flats again. Since the current temperatures don’t allow for much change when it comes to warm knits and shearling-lined boots, jewellery and a beautiful watch have become my daily touch of glam. Especially the new Omega De Ville Trésor, which I also wore as the clock struck midnight on December 31st to ring in the new year…
“Just like the women who inspired the design, each model shines with its own personality.”
Even though you will find me wearing bleached jeans and a sweatshirt most days, a beautiful watch always adds a special touch to any outfit. I still remember how, for many years, I wondered what men found so fascinating about watches. It is a piece of jewellery. A personal treasure. Simple as that. And what better watch to embody that, than the new De Ville Trésor with delicate Roman numerals and diamonds paving the curves along each side of the dial?

Disclosure (Ad/Anzeige): For the past three years I have been an official ambassador for Omega, which means I get to wear their newest models for a period of time. However, my love for the brand goes far beyond our partnership. My mom gifted my dad with an Omega watch for their wedding. The first watch I ever purchased for myself was the Aqua Terra Seamaster. And the gift I decided to give Mike for his 30th birthday was the iconic Speedmaster ’57. Needless to say, it is an absolute honor to work with Omega!
