Watch Brand Pronunciation

When picking up a wrist watch, pocket watch or a special antique watch, save yourself any potential embarrassment by correctly pronouncing the brand name correctly.

Sounds easy right, well, it can be a little tricky when it’s in a language you’re not acquainted with and the sniggering that can occur when you say a certain watch name incorrectly can be mortifying.

To help you out we’ve put together a watch brand phonetic guide so you know exactly how to pronounce the world’s leading watch brands. You can also read our watch glossary so you can know all the intricate pieces that go into your favourite time piece.
