Finding the PERFECT WATCH

WATCHES are stylish accessories to pair with your casual and formal outfits. For many guys, choosing the right wristwatch can be a bit difficult. With so many styles and brands to choose from, picking the perfect watch can be tasking. Watches come in every material, style and prices too.

Purpose: When choosing a watch, first you need to determine its purpose. Would it function as a casual, athletic or even a dress watch? Having all these in mind, you can start checking out different watch brands. Get a watch that compliments your personal style and suits your taste.

Size matters too. When someone asks you the time at work, it would be quite awkward if they see you’re wearing an oversized, gangster, gold watch. In short, people naturally notice when something is out of balance. Proportions and wrist sizes. For balance, if you have a big wrist, you will want a big watch and if you have a small wrist, you will settle for a small one. Men’s watches usually range from 38mm to 46mm. Anything above 46mm should be reserved for flashy outfits while anything below 38mm leans towards women’s size watches. To know what size works for you,  you need to try it on or ask family and friends for their opinion. Watch the thickness of the case too as it looks better on you when it is best proportioned to your body. Also people with large wrists prefer wider watchbands. Your watch band material also matters, it must be adjustable and durable. Wearing a watch with a leather band gives it a slimmer look. Metal is naturally heavy, so choosing a metal band will make it appear bigger and heavier.

Never forget that metal watch faces are more durable than the plastic ones although the metal can become scratched or corroded. Also, if you’re looking for a watch to wear every day, select materials that complement the accessories you already wear. Decide between analog and digital faces. The size of the numbers or clock face can vary between watches, and the numbers can be in different stylized fonts.    A lot depends on your personal preference but consider a nice watch that reflects your personality and compliments your style.
