Wrist taker


Who: Kirsten Tan, 36, film-maker who directed award- winning film Pop Aye (2017)

What I'm wearing: Skagen Holst Watch Series 

How much I paid for it: It's a birthday gift from a friend

Why I like it: My dress style is minimal and the Skagen, with its classic design, helps me complete that look. It's crucial to the way I dress.

It was given to me by a friend this year for my birthday. I've been wearing it every day and feel naked without it.

I have always worn watches, but I'm a "one watch at a moment" kind of person and this is my favourite now.

I don't think I could ever wear a digital watch. It has to be analogue for me. I love feeling the constant rhythm of time passing on my wrist.
