With us spending so much times on our cell phones, our watches have become a little obsolete. That doesn’t mean that we should stop wearing them though. For most men, the range of jewelry that they can comfortably wear is very limited.
Watches give you a way of adding some bling without creating too much of a stir. They can be used as an expression of your personality or as a way of creating a great first impression.
In this post, we will look at the four styles of watches that every many should consider.
A Good Dress Watch
This is where it is worthwhile to spend a bit of extra money. You want something that is dressy enough to wear to a formal dinner and something that you could wear during the day as well.
The ideal dress watch is one that has a classic look and one that is not a slave to the current fashion trends. Choose wisely, and you will have a watch that works your entire life and that never looks dated.
Dress watches may come with metal straps or leather straps. The manufacturers will often use precious metals on the face. There may also be some diamond details.
A Dive Watch
These watches look really cool and are also pretty durable. So, even if you never plan to go diving, they are worth looking at. The amount that you pay for yours will depend on what features you are after.
A really popular model dive watch can set you back a good few hundred dollars, so it is worth deciding upfront what your budget is. Do you want a dive watch that can be used underwater? Or do you want one that just looks like it could?
A Cheap Watch
This is not something that you want to spend a lot of money on. This is the watch that you wear and don’t mind if it gets scratched or broken. This is not the watch to wear when you want to impress someone, but it is something to wear when you are messing around with friends over the weekend.
Your Dream Watch
This is the watch that you buy purely for yourself. It is the one that you love, and it doesn’t matter whether it is a simple Seiko watch or an omega speedmaster. This is the watch that is your favorite. You don’t care what other people think about this one.
As a result, you can spend as much, or as little, as you want on this one. It just needs to do two basic things – tell the time and make you feel happy when you see it.
Whether that means shelling out for a really expensive watch, or just getting something because it looks like a watch you had growing up, your happiness is all that matters here.
Once you have these basics in place, you have a watch that will work with any look you choose. Use the dive watch for a more casual look, and save the dress watch for your next formal affair. Every man can look chic with the right watch as his accessory.
