There are not many accessories that are as timeless and classy as watches. Think about it – even though we have smart devices that tell us the time in any part of the world and inform us of everything that we can think of, watches are still not obsolete. Far from it.
However, it’s not easy to find a watch that complements who you are, as it is a very personal accessory that’s supposed to make a statement. So, if you have dilemmas about how to best display your style, we’re here to help.
Firstly, we should explain that you may be going about it the wrong way. There is no single style that completely encompasses who you are. Nobody is just ‘sporty’ or just ‘business.’ There are different layers to it, different occasions, and settings that require different styles.
We’re here to show you how you can complement these various styles with a watch as an accessory. Your job is to determine which type you prefer and put on most frequently. Maybe that should be your first watch, so when you get ‘hooked’ on how good you look with it, you’ll buy other kinds of watches that will help you to always look complete.
1 Sporty watches
Whether you are just a sporty-dressed kind of person, or you frequently exercise, your sports watch will perfect your look as well as serve its’ function.
For your sporty watch, you can choose different analog watches with a sports/military design or get a smartwatch, one of the most popular choices lately. Smartwatches can complement your athletic image ideally, as well as serve a purpose, whether you’re measuring time when running or want to be able to answer a call while exercising.
Smartwatches are also very stylish with their ability to change templates on their display so they can even match your business-casual look if you ever need them to.
2 Business and classy watches
This kind of watch is considered very pricey and luxurious. However, that isn’t necessarily so. You can get great deals for well-preserved second-hand watches at a Pre-Owned Rolex dealer, such as Rolex, Omega, or Cartier.
These kinds of watches complement you whether you’re wearing a suit at work or you’re looking for something to round up your look for a special occasion. With one of these, you’ll convey that you’re someone with a serious approach to your style and image, and its timeless design will match any combination you choose for the occasion.
Every watch like a Rolex or an Omega is created by master watchmakers and passionate designers that chose the materials meticulously. Buying one of these is a lifetime investment. Essentially, you’re buying something that doesn’t age, and that will never go out of style. This piece of fashion will always stay high quality, and you can leave it to your children to wear one day.
3 Business-casual and all-around kinds of watches
This type of watch is designed to match various styles. You’re going for something that will ‘blend in’ with multiple looks. Therefore, you need to look for a watch with a neutral enough look.
The downside of this approach would be that something neutral is, well, just that – neutral. We agree that watches are not something that should draw attention instantly. The most luxurious watches are designed to be noticed only by people who wish to notice them; they just complete the image perfectly.
But getting a neutral watch that doesn’t convey anything at all is also a bad choice. Therefore, you should try and find an all-around watch that still has some character.
Lately, beautiful watches are being made from natural materials such as wood and bamboo plants. Even their mechanisms are made from completely natural, eco-friendly matters. These earthy, natural watches have an unobtrusive yet strong way of introducing who you are.
Another option would be getting a more affordable brand of watch with a neutral frame, metal or black. You can then get a chain or a leather belt that you can change in accordance with your clothing.
Your neutral watch is a great solution if you don’t want to invest too much money into your fashion accessories and if you are looking for a universal solution that doesn’t require any overthinking.
Your watch is your identity. Watch brands have such a distinctive style that people can be either a Rolex or an Omega kind of person.
Therefore, your job isn’t the easiest, but luckily there are a plethora of options at your disposal. Technology has enabled you to get your smartwatch that can serve as a phone, an internet browser, a timer, and an AI assistant. You can also order military-style and shock watches on the internet. There are options if you are keen on getting a luxury watch so that you don’t spend too much money, and middle-price watches look very high-class and stylish.
It’s up to you to decide which one suits you best. Or just get all of them.
