Undoubtedly, wrist watch is an integral part of modern fashion. Especially for men as we guys don't really have that much accessory options to begin with. A wrist watch is a unique fashion accessory because while its main function is to tell time, it also increases our style – in other words, making our whole image better.
But fashion sense is not the only deciding factor in choosing what watch to wear. You see, there are at least 20 types of wrist watches in existence currently and choosing what type of watch to wear is most important to perfect your style for whatever event or occasion you're going to. Yep you read that right. There are 20 types of watches. But of course, all of them are not independent of each other. In fact, most watches can be categorized into a few types (such as an automatic + analog + diver's watch).
Perhaps the most universally useful type of watch, the diver requires a robustness that makes it the perfect candidate for the "one-watch collection." If you're gonna buy just one type of timepiece, we'd recommend a dive watch: something with a minimum of 100m of water resistance, a screw-down crown, a rotating, count-up bezel for timing, a highly legible dial covered in a luminous substance, and a solid bracelet.
Of course, not every dive watch will have each one of these features: some will lack the screw-down crown, while others might come on a rubber strap instead of a bracelet. But if you only have room for one watch in your live, we'd say make it a diver.
Alright, so you have your trusty dive watch. Could you wear that thing with a tuxedo? I mean, you could, but it might look a little weird, unless your last name is Connery. The better bet, if you're gonna expand your collection, is to go with a svelte dress watch. And though many dress watches are indeed made in precious metals, you can absolutely go for a steel model and not drop a month's (or two or three months') salary on one.
There are no firm regulations for what constitutes a dress watch, but most of them are relatively thin, tell only the time and nothing else (some even omit the seconds hand), and ship on a handsome leather strap. Here are some of our favorite examples, such as Luxury Watch, Women Watch, Diamond Watch, Gold Watch, Bangutte Watch, Hippop Watch, etc.
We get it - you don't fly a plane, so what do you need one of these for. But though pilot's watches were originally indeed designed for those captaining aircraft, today the genre encompasses a whole slew of practical, rugged timepieces that can easily take many forms. From simple, time-only models recalling watches from the 1940s and 1950s to complicated chronograph, pilot's watches truly run the gamut.
The biggest requirement of a pilot's watch is really that it's legible to someone flying an aircraft. In the past this sometimes meant huge, oversized watches, but it could also easily mean a smaller, cleanly designed piece. And a great watch has to be equipped with great Watch Accessories like a Strap or a Watch Strap.
