Have you finally decided to buy a quality wristwatch?

As you already know, in today’s world of smartphones, smartwatches, and rapidly changing trends, wearing a wristwatch is quite more than just sharing functionality, wearing a wristwatch reflects your style and character.

As time shows, watches also provide an opportunity to highlight your individual character. For example, for women, watches are a standard part of jewelry, but also a specific detail in putting together trendy clothing combinations. For men, on the other hand, watches are a presentation of character, position in society, and defining style. Therefore, we can conclude that in both cases, choosing a wristwatch is a careful and special process for each individual, but still different from each perspective, depending on your style and character. To help you choose a watch, we will introduce you to a few general rules that you need to consider when choosing a watch according to your criteria.

If you should narrow your collection to 5 models, we present you the types of watches to make it easier for you to choose a watch and orient you to your style and taste:

DRESS WATCHES

  • Simplicity.
  • Minimalism.
  • Warehouse.
  • Unobtrusiveness.

These four expressions represent to you the essence and character of dress watches. Today’s dress watches have their heritage dating back to the early 20th century when men moved their watches from their pockets to their hands. From the very beginnings of wristwatches, today’s dress watches have retained some of their key features. And the lady and the gentleman are recognized precisely by the way they wear their wristwatch at more formal events.

Key features of dress watches

  • Slim body – so it can fit under a dressing or shirt,
  • A small diameter of the case – anything above 42 mm is too much (it also depends on the size of the wrist),
  • Leather belt – black or brown leather is considered (necessarily the same shade as the shoes and belt),
  • Not loaded with complications – possibly a date and a second hand come into play,
  • Elegant and unobtrusive style.  

On what occasions to wear a dress watch?

When you attend a formal event – from a traditional wedding to a black-tie event – the simple classics and unobtrusiveness of dress watches seem to be the best choice for you.

Also, very important information is that the dress watch should be proportional to your wrist as otherwise, it will attract too much attention.

Key features of sports watches:

  • Rubber, silicone, or rubber strap – comfort and breathability come first,
  • Sports complications – most often a chronograph, tachymeter, and even heart rate monitoring.

When could you wear sports watches?

Today, the definition of a sports watch is much broader than 50-60 years ago – you no longer need to be a race rider or a professional cyclist to find a purpose in a good sports watch and decorate your wrist with a high-quality and distinctive style example. Thus, modern sports watches have become a material confirmation of the modern casual lifestyle.

Because of their versatility, precision, and multi-purpose, sports watches say a lot about their owner, his priorities, style, and lifestyle.
