Eesha Koppikhar is a busy woman with a number of projects on hand -- a new restaurant, NGO work, films and lot more. But the Khallas girl is good at time management with more than 70 watches in her wardrobe. Eesha who's been collecting watches since the age of 20 talks to CS about her fetish:
I have always had a thing for watches. As a kid, I remember wearing those colourful plastic watches. While I didn't ask for shoes or trinkets, I always wanted a watch on my wrist. Over the years, my fetish has grown stronger and stronger. Now, I can proudly say that I have some really beautiful time pieces in my collection. I am quite a collector.
When I wear a watch, I make sure it looks good with the outfit that I am wearing. I prefer keeping my watches simple and stay away from the huge and flashy stuff. I choose a watch as per the occasion. But I have a soft corner for big dials.
Over the years, I have bought quite a few watches. Each of them have some anecdote or other attached to it. So, it's tough to single out one particular watch. But if I had to pick one, it would have to be my Rolex. It was my first high-end watch that I bought with my hard earned money. I got it after the release of my first film. So, it has a lot of sentimental value attached to it. Another watch that I really admire is the Vacheron Constantin. I have seen a model on my recent trip abroad, and plan to buy it soon.
I think a watch is a must-have accessory for everybody. It makes your wrist look attractive. Personally, I prefer a watch to bracelets, bands or trinkets. While your watch need not be very expensive, it should have a classy look to it. Having said all this, I don't think one can compare jewellery and watches. I have a passion for watches and love collecting them. But then, like every woman I love jewellery as well.
