A watch is the final detail in completing your look and creating the kind of first impression that you wish to make. Imagine going for your first job interview in a tailored suit with Oxford lace-ups and as you reach forward to shake hands with your prospective employee, your digital stopwatch with rubber strap peeks out. While retro digital watches are experiencing a comeback, they won’t complement your suit. Watches are the details to your outfit and often you’ll find you need at least two to match your formal and dressed down wardrobes. A classic analogue watch with a leather or metal link strap is a subtle addition to your formal suit. Similarly, a bright and sporty digital watch works with your jogger, T-shirt and denim jacket combination. It’s not that you can’t interchange one watch with your entire wardrobe, but if you want to look put together, it’s better to integrate your watch with your overall look.
That said, if you’re looking to invest in one style of watch then go for a minimalist leather strapped or metal link timepiece. Metal straps are usually ideal as they are neutral and they are subtle enough to work with all outfits, but not loud enough to make a statement. Go for a round face with lines rather than numbers and if possible choose stainless steel, which is a classic. Alternatively, if you are looking to up your watch collection according to categories, then invest in a dress watch and you can go for a sportier version for the weekend. Regardless of the style, you’ll find the right watch for your style and budget at Spree.
