Watch It - Trends in Womens Watches
As the only piece of jewellery a man should wear (except a wedding ring), a good watch says something about you. It is a standard rule of fashion that there's nothing like a white-faced or metal faced men's watch with a black leather or stainless steel band. If a classic timepiece hasn't yet made its way into your fashion arsenal, then that should be next on your to-do list. It may appear that many men understand this since almost every man has a watch on his hand, but for watches to be considered fashion accessory watches must be not only functional but also stylish and "in vogue". To know what are trends in men's watches continue reading.
The big trend is big watches, both in size and in shape. Many are more than 40 millimeters in diameter. This trend will surely continue as every watchmaker is picking up on this trend. Every celebrity I've seen recently is also picked up this trend. Hot trends in watches styling and design are retro looks such as a "TV screen" shape, or a geometric rectangular shaped case.
With the strap, leather is a classic mainstay of the fashion world, one of the hottest looks out there today for guys is a wide leather wristband, and that style has seeped into the watch market. This is popular with surf watches. Over the last few years ski, skater and surf clothes have become a big fashion trend. Several of the skate and surf fashion companies have launched their own watch brands including Bench, Kahuna and Fat Face.
Whether you choose a stainless steel or leather strap, this style is a sure-fire way to hide your true intentions. Japanese watch brand Tokyo Flash have some very abstract watches with flaps or geometric displays instead of the usual analogue hands.
A stainless steel strap is also a classic, particularly for sport or diving watches. Stainless steel is more practical than leather and is certainly more durable as it is dressy enough to be worn with a business suit and casual enough for other occasions. So not only is it versatile, but it's waterproof as well. If you want something a bit different, a mesh strap is a good way to show your penchant for style without going overboard.
Sports and dive watches can also be in black rubber. Simple, down to earth and minimalist. Not too flash. And let me be brutally honest, there's nothing stylish about them anyway - they are about function. Ballistic do a good range of reasonably priced stainless steel sports and diving watches waterproof to 100 metres.
I do suggest having different watches for both work and play if your lifestyle merits it or you simply like having variety. However, when buying a dressier watch, you should choose something that is classic or more lasting. So once you have a classic timepiece that complements your business look, try a new trendy watch on for size. Between the leather, mesh, face covers, bright bands, and oversized faces or straps, you never know what a great time you can actually have.
