From the traditionalist to the ultra sporty, avant garde and hypebeast, which watch personality suits you best?

You can tell a lot about a person just by taking a glance at their preferred timepiece. Do they prefer analog or digital? Sporty or elegant? Leather strap or with a metal bracelet? A watch isn't just a watch; like the clothes we put on our back and the shoes we slip into, it is very much an extension of our style and personality.

Take the the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland for example, who went with the classic pocket watch as he rushed to his next appointments or Back to the Future's Doc Brown who had a watch on each wrist as he juggled between timelines. Corum's selection of fine watches has a timepiece for everybody. Need a helping hand on which style fits you best? Keep scrolling for our guide.
