Men's watches: It's always time for style
Some people say that technology has made the humble watch obsolete – but we beg to differ! A classy, sophisticated timepiece will never go out of style. Even if you rely on your smartphone more nowadays, a watch is a great way of putting the finishing touch on your outfit. What's more, watches help you express your unique personality. You can go for a classic metal or leather timepiece, or mix it up with a street-inspired look. Sporty watches and military watches are other ways of showing off your style and making sure your wrist reflects exactly who you are.
The world of sports watches for men
Some of the most popular men's watches are sports watches. Nowadays, more and more men are opting for smartwatches or wearable gadgets that will keep track of steps, heart rate, sleep patterns and more. Despite this, the classic sports watch still has its place. The most basic choice is between analogue and digital. Analogue sports watches usually come with extra details, such as dials for monitoring performance, while digital watches are generally more user-friendly and make it easier to time yourself. Remember to look for a waterproof watch if you're planning on hitting the waves. Some divers' watches can survive serious depths – you might not need that, but make sure that your watch can handle getting wet.
Choosing a man's watch for daily life
The watch you have on your wrist says a lot about you. If you're wearing a suit and tie to work, you'll probably want a classic timepiece. Watches for men with a precious metal, bracelet-style finish are the most famous – and the most expensive. A more affordable alternative is a classic watch face on a simple leather strap. For streetwear, consider a black plastic strap – or, for a look that shows off the quirky side of your personality, go military-inspired with a khaki green timepiece, perhaps held in place with Velcro. Remember that your watch should match your outfit. You may have a cherished, fancy watch – but if you're rocking a T-shirt and sweats, it's going to look seriously out of place. Save it for another day.
