Watches are essential accessories, especially for men. Even if women have the option of wearing wristlets, wristbands and bangles, the single most important thing that helps men to make their fashion statement is their wristwatch. Here are certain areas which require special attention while purchasing a men’s wristwatch.
The design and the make
If spending fortunes on Omega and Rolex watches is not possible, then more reasonable brands like Rado, Casio and Tokyo Flash are available. Watches from Alien are also a good option, as they do not employ a digital display, or clock face, but the LED codes give them a rather futuristic look. Depending on the person’s tastes and requirements, you can buy a classic watch, or even a sports watch.
Buy a model that can be used for multi-tasking
Even though its always an advantage to possess multiple watches for all occasions, possessing one watch with changeable wrist bands is not a bad option altogether. Possessing a watch with multiple colored straps means that it can be worn to a formal occasion with a black or brown band, or to a party with a green, yellow or blue band. The one design that is guaranteed to gel perfectly with every outfit is a watch with a silver wrist band.
Ensure that the watch is water proof. It is at this point that customers are confused. While water resistant means that one can splash water on it and expect it not to break, water proof actually means that it can be worn while swimming, deep-sea diving and other such activities. Also look at other features such as alarm, calendar etc. Ensure that the strap and the clasp are both made of good quality steel or leather, and that it has a long battery life.
Men’s watches can be classy, or trendy,or a bit of both. It is best to look at all the options, features and price-tags carefully before deciding on one.
