Choosing your perfect timepiece


A classic, luxury timepiece is a significant investment and the right one is likely to stick with you forever, making it even more important to find one that you love.

With the ever-increasing selection of luxury watches on the market, it can be difficult to find one to complement your style and other accessories. You’ll need to think about factors such as the occasions you’ll be wearing your watch to, as well as the style, hardware and materials you want your new timepiece to be comprised of.

 

If you’re on the lookout for a new watch to add to your accessory collection, but you’re unsure of where to start – look no further. We’ve put together this useful guide to help you find a watch you’ll love now and for years to come.

Complement your sense of style

It’s important to consider your dress-sense when looking for the right watch, as you’ll need to opt for something that’s complementary to your everyday wear.

If you’re a regular suit and tie wearer, you may find that a simple dress watch is appropriate for formal functions, as well as everyday workwear. We recommend the Bremont SOLO watch range for those looking for something classic and formal, yet comfortable enough for everyday wear.

On the other hand, if your style errs on the casual side you can explore a range of options. Think about the colour palette you normally gravitate towards and find a watch that complements this. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer range is the perfect choice for anyone that’s looking for a casual, fuss-free watch. Not only this, but they come in a range of colour choices so you’ll be sure to find one that suits your exact style.

Size

The size is arguably the most important feature of your watch. They will affect the comfort, fit and look of your timepiece significantly, so it’s crucial to take careful consideration when deciding on these features. Naturally, if you have a larger wrist you’ll require a larger watch, however, it’s easy to go over the line and select a watch that’s too big.

 

The watch casing is measured by diameter and is usually shown in millimeters, therefore, you can use this information to measure your wrist and see which size will suit you best. Standard men’s watches usually sit between 38mm and 46mm, so you can use this as a guide when looking through different options.

Straps

The straps of a watch can completely change its character, and there are a wealth of options out there to choose from. Some of the most common strap styles and materials you can choose from include:

 

  • NATO strap
  • Leather
  • Faux leather
  • Rubber
  • Metal

 

Metal straps tend to be large and heavy, therefore, they lend themselves well to those with larger wrists. However, you can also get metal watches with slimmer bands such as the Cartier Tank Anglaise which are more lightweight and feminine.

 

On the other hand, materials such as leather and rubber tend are lightweight and flexible, making for a more comfortable wearing experience.

 

Finding the perfect timepiece can be a challenging feat, especially with the extensive range of options on the market. If you’re tempted by a range of options and are looking to start a collection, don’t forget to keep them safe with luxury watch case such as those from the Case Farm.

This can give you peace of mind that your timepieces are safe from harm at home and whilst travelling too.
