A watch is something that I just can’t wear! Be it for board exams back in school or even in the university, I would make sure that I have a big clock in front of me or that the guy next to me would be wearing a watch. I always had this notion that watches are not made for my wrist and any watch that I wear would just not look good.

Despite being punished for it as well back in Flight School, I still wouldn’t do it. Pilots are supposed to have an analog watch on all the time! But then again I forced myself to wear one all through out my training and now I can’t remember the last time I wore one. Also, had no idea what the watchmakers all over the world were doing.

Then I became older, a bit wiser but mostly just a person who doesn’t care much. Although I don’t even know how to ride a bike, I am fascinated by a biker’s lifestyle and sense of style. And that’s exactly when I stumbled upon a watch that I could envision myself wearing.

Diesel is known for their super cool accessories and watches are one of them. So when I came across this Diesel watch, it was love at first sight. I am up for all things vintage and what I like most about this watch is how it has this whole vintage vibe to it. The olive strap looks so cool and adds a lot of character to this modern world creation.The oversized dial makes me swoon! I think it makes my itsy-bitsy wrist look much larger than it is, which is the best thing.

There are so many ways to wear this beautifully crafted accessory and I’m going to show you 2 ways to do it and here is the first one –

The perfect biker look minus the biker jacket because the heat in Delhi won’t let me wear one even for shoot! A plain olive T-shirt, torn black denims and oxblood boots to compliment the perfect watch.
