How do I style my watch?

There are several ways to style a watch, depending on the occasion and your personal taste. Here are a few tips:

Consider The Occasion: 

Formal events call for a sleek and simple watch, while casual events can accommodate a bolder and more colourful watch.

  • Formal events: For black-tie events or formal business meetings, opt for a dressier watch with a metal band and elegant design. Try a Citizen watch, Calvin Klein watch, Tommy Hilfiger watch or Michel Herbelin watch to embrace classic elegance. 
  • Casual outings: For a casual lunch with friends or a day at the beach, a sporty watch with a rubber or canvas strap is more appropriate, we love Adidas Originals watches, Ellis & Co watches or a Luminox watch
  • Workplace: For the workplace, a classic watch with a leather strap or a minimalist design is a safe choice. 
  • Outdoor activities: For outdoor activities like hiking or running, a rugged watch with a durable strap and features like water resistance is ideal. For amazing durability and a rugged look, you can’t go wrong with a Baby-G watch or dive watch.
  • Special occasions: For special occasions like weddings or graduations, choose a watch that matches the formality of the event and compliments your outfit.

It's also important to consider the dress code for the specific occasion when choosing a watch to wear. If in doubt, a versatile and classic watch is a safe choice that can be worn in a variety of settings.

Think About Your Wrist size: 

Make sure the watch fits comfortably on your wrist, and consider the size of the watch face relative to your wrist size.

  • Wrist size: Measure your wrist size with a measuring tape or string and compare it to the watch manufacturer's specifications to determine the best size for your wrist.
  • Case size: The case size refers to the diameter of the watch face, and can range from small (less than 40mm) to large (over 46mm). Consider your wrist size and personal preference when choosing the case size.
  • Band width: The band width should be proportional to the case size and your wrist size. A wider band can help balance out a larger case size, while a narrower band can help keep a smaller case size looking proportionate.

Match The Metal: 

If you're wearing jewellery, try to match the metal of your watch with the metal of your jewellery. For example, wear a silver watch with silver jewellery. When choosing the metal for your watch, consider the following factors. 

  • Durability: Stainless steel, titanium, and ceramic are durable metals that can withstand daily wear and tear.
  • Allergies: If you have sensitive skin, consider a hypoallergenic metal like titanium or stainless steel.
  • Style: Different metals have different colours and finishes that can impact the overall style of your watch. For example, stainless steel is a popular choice for its silver watch colour, while a yellow gold watch has a warm, classic look.
  • Cost: The price of your watch can be greatly impacted by the metal used, with precious metals like gold and platinum being more expensive than stainless steel or titanium.
  • Personal preference: Ultimately, the best metal for your watch depends on your personal preferences, budget, and intended use of the watch.

How To Extend The Lifespan Of Your Watch

  • Regular maintenance: Regularly have your watch serviced and cleaned by a professional to keep it in good working order.
  • Handle with care: Avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures, strong magnetic fields, or rough handling, as these can cause damage over time.
  • Store properly: When not in use, store your watch in a cool, dry place to protect it from moisture and dust.
  • Protect from water: If your watch is water-resistant, follow the manufacturer's guidelines for water exposure. If your watch is not water-resistant, avoid exposing it to water.
  • Avoid exposure to chemicals: Certain chemicals can cause damage to the metal and strap of your watch, so avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals whenever possible.
  • Use proper battery replacement: If your watch is powered by a battery, have it replaced by a professional to avoid damaging the movement.

It's also important to consider the dress code for the specific occasion when choosing a watch to wear. If in doubt, a versatile and classic watch is a safe choice that can be worn in a variety of settings.
