Celine Simon

Luxury Watch Content Writer


I am a writer, editor, blogger, and marketing communications professional specialized in luxury watches. I have worked with and written about luxury watches for over ten years. I am particularly knowledgeable about brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breguet, OMEGA, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Ulysse Nardin, Blancpain, Cartier, Glashutte Original, Audemars Piguet, TAG Heuer, and so on.

Aside from contributing daily to very popular blogs, I am also a Managing Editor of a print publication dedicated to high-end watches and fine jewelry. Furthermore, I have clients in the watch and jewelry space who count on me to write their online and offline content.

I can take complex technical information about calibers, complications, materials, and functions and translate it into a language that is easy to understand and enjoyable to read. I consider myself a watch enthusiast and a big fan of haute horology.
