For the true gentlemen, wearing a watch is far more than having the tool of time on their wrist. It’s about showcasing style and personality. That is the power of a wristwatch. The best wristwatches are simple, versatile, elegant, and classic.
Just imagine a man in a tuxedo at a black-tie event. He has poise, style and a posture that catches everyone’s attention. And he turns his wrist to check the time and he wears a wristwatch with a rubber strap. That is a failure!
There are a few rules that are timeless and relevant in any situation.
Dress Watch or Analog Watch
Analog watch has a face with hour and minute hands and either markers or numbers that display a 12-hour day. This watch is considered classic and more formal, making it suitable for business, formal events or a date. And a black leather strap is as formal as it gets.
Black Tie / White Tie
Simplicity is key in the formal events. A simple dress watch in a classic style and black leather strap will mute any objections from conservative observers.
go with a simple classic styled gold or silver watch with a thin dial with limited or no complications. A dark conservative suit is best paired with a classic dress watch.
A light colored site with no necktie is best complimented with a high-end Chrono or pilot.
the metal case of the watches should complement the metal accents of your other accessories. A rose gold watch case can be worn with a gold belt buckle. A black watch case can be worn with either gold or silver. A gold case watch is best suited to clothes, cuff links, shoes and other accessories while silver goes with grey, blue, and black.
Also, pick a watch according to your size as well. Watches should be proportionate to your body. Thin men can work slim watches, while bigger men can wear watches that have robust faces. Use these tips to ensure a harmony between your clothes and your wristwatch.
