Who: Mr Dennis Teo, 43, group managing director of flooring specialist Evorich

My watch: Hublot Big Bang King All Black

How much I paid for it: I bought it seven years ago for $17,000

Why I like it: I like big watches and this is perfect with its 48mm case.

The watch is made from black ceramic and looks subtle and understated.

It is good for day-to-day use and is great for travelling because it is not flashy, yet makes a statement.

It is also so sporty and sturdy that I wear it to the gym.

At the same time, it is smart enough for formal occasions. I'm happy that it has served me so well.

And, of course, it helps me keep track of time. Time is finite and we should manage it wisely. We shouldn't spend it all on work. We should also set aside time for family, friends and things we love and enjoy.
