So you might be wondering, what is the point of wearing a wristwatch? Well, it’s because men have limited choices when it comes to jewelries, so a wristwatch would be perfect for you if you plan on accessorizing your outfit. If you’re a man that is fashion-conscious, you would understand that a wristwatch is way more than just a time-teller. Besides doing what it’s designed to do, a wristwatch actually portrays the wearer’s character, style and even wealth. They are also a classic in fashion and will not go out of style.
After knowing the reasons for wearing a wristwatch, here are a few different types that you should consider adding to your collection. Although there are so many different types available, but you will only need one or two that suits your style to round out your closet.
This watch is the ideal watch for attending formal events, whether you’re attending a business meeting or a wedding. When selecting a dress watch, it is important not to choose something that is too complicated. The dress watch looks best with a simple and stylish design. It is also important to choose a dress watch that has a slim strap so that it can slide in and out of the sleeve easily when worn with a suit. Also make sure that the size of your watch suits your wrist. If not, you’ll be attracting all the unwanted attention to your watch, which is the complete opposite of what a dress watch should do. Dress watches usually come in black or brown leather straps, and make sure that the color of your leather band matches the other leathers in your outfit, like your belt and your shoes.
As the name suggests, a sports watch is specially made for working out or exercising. It doesn’t matter if you’re going to the gym, or going for a jog, the sports watch will be perfect for you. This is because they are lighter and have a rubber strap instead of leather or metal ones. Besides, there are a lot of features that are exclusively added into these watches, like stopwatches, timers, altimeters, water resistance and screens that can glow in the dark. These built-in features will definitely assist you in your exercise and your work out.
These watches are sometimes known as fashion watches. This is due to their ability to be worn for most casual events. They normally have a larger case compared to other watches, and their straps are usually made of metal. Although they are designed for casual wear, but they can occasionally be worn for formal events. When wearing a metal watch, it is important to note that the tone of the metal band matches with the other metals that are in your outfit. For example, if you are wearing a silver metal watch, do not match them with a gold-tone belt buckle, as it would completely ruin your outfit. Since a man’s outfit rarely involves metal, the metal watch becomes a simple and versatile choice for casual wear.
In the end, it still comes to your taste when selecting your wristwatch. Ready for your next watch shopping? Well, just make sure to check out all the options available and take your time while purchasing your watch so that you’ll find one that complements your attire and suits your character.
