Which Watch to Wear For Various Occasions

Sep 4, 2008
Watches come in a variety of styles that can be matched to the wearer and occasion perfectly. Watch style will be expressed through the materials used for the band, face color and shape of the case. Other features that will define a watch style include the dial design, color, size and hands. Each watch style will have a price range that will make the look and many features affordable for different budgets.

For a person who enjoys sports or an active lifestyle, watches will have such sporty features as water resistance, screw down casebacks and crowns. Sports watches frequently have a titanium case to protect the timepiece. Scratch resistance covers further protect the watch during any recreational activity. The sports watch may have large hour markers or a high contrast watch face for easy time recognition during busy periods.

For the user who needs a water resistant watch, the depth of water at which a watch will be worn is an important consideration. Water resistant watches generally are purchased for depths of water ranging from 100 feet to 330 feet which covers the person wearing the watch in the rain to the serious deep diver.

Formal looks require a dressy watch. The dressy watch face, band and band can be matched to the outfit as required. Luxury features include the use of gemstones, diamonds and precious metals on the watch. Diamond watches double as a beautiful jewelry item and may feature diamonds on the watch face, as hour markers, on the bezel or band.

Stainless steel is a neutral choice for a formal watch that complements many formal outfits. The watch should be inconspicuous and elegant without drawing too much attention to itself. A good example of a neutral and formal watch would be a small watch face that uses black hour markers on a white background. If a precious metal is desired, gold or platinum are alluring on an elegant dress watch.

Watches for casual occasions can be worn for recreation and work, depending on the work atmosphere. Water resistance, comfortable bands and easy to view watch faces are typical features of the casual watch. Watches strictly for work should have a clearly marked watch face and hour markers that can be read easily at a glance. Work watches commonly feature alarms, second hands, multiple time zones and timers that can be set by the wearer. A casual watch should have easy to replace parts since this watch may be worn more than other watches in a collection.

Whether the watch is fun, classic, fashionable or bejeweled, there are many watch features and considerations that must be weighed when buying the right watch for anyone. When the consumer is able to match their wants and needs in one watch, the purchase will be successful and the watch will be worn on many occasions. Choosing the right watch will allow the consumer to avoid buying a unwanted watch that will be stashed in the drawer more often than it is actually worn.
