Some Helpful Tips To Help You Choose The Perfect Watch For The Man In Your Life

Aug 17, 2007
Exactly how casual is your husband, boyfriend, or other man in your life? The watch you choose for him should reflect who he is as a person. If the man in your life is stylish and trendy, you must pick a watch that follows suit. If he is casual at both his job and at home, choose a watch with an informal look. If he is heavily into sports, pick a watch that suits his needs. Regardless, you must choose a watch that is both a match to his personality and a match to his desires.

Any man should have a watch suitable to work and home environments. If the man in your life works in a casual environment, one watch will usually suffice. You may find he wants two regardless in case one watch becomes damaged.

Sports watches are generally lower in cost than casual or formal watches. The design on this type of watch is also different. For the most part, sports watches are all about function. They need the stop watch for timing, and often have other functions such as diving depths, a compass, temperature reading, and even pitching speed readers. The Omega Seamaster is perhaps the fanciest of the sports watches. With night vision, tachometers, compass, and other fancy tools, it is a watch for any aspiring super sleuth.

When shopping for a classy watch, look for stainless steel straps. They are stronger than a traditional leather strap. Additionally, they are dressy enough for the office, but casual enough for home. Stainless steel does not rust, and it is water resistant. Speaking of water resistance, waterproof watches are also popular. However, only divers will really swim with their watch on, so this is an option you may not need.

If you have the money, gold or gold plating is an option. Gold watchbands are extremely expensive, however, and may attract unwanted attention from thieves.

The actual part of the watch that contains the digital or analog time reading can come in all shapes and sizes. Large men need to don a watch that does not appear too tiny compared to their wrist. For this reason, smaller watch faces can look rather feminine on plus sized men. Many watch faces are oversized, a new trend, and can actually be very suitable on most men. You must base the size of the watch face on the span of the wrist for a watch to look good.

Finally, watches and their bands come in a variety of colors. Some even come with favored sports teams, cartoon characters, or car manufacturers. Choose a color that is suitable to your needs. Obviously, a cartoon themed watch is not going to be appropriate in a corporate setting, save a watch of this nature for home use.

By following a few simple guidelines, the watch that you pick out for the man in your life will give a lasting impression. Think of his likes and personal style when making your selection.
