Seems like a simple subject, but it is not so, constantly get questions from readers of the Channel the Male about how to combine the clock according to the style of clothing chosen. Some try to circumvent the rules and insert any piece in the middle of the look, others simply can’t hit the relationship between the style of the watch, and the costume. In the end you just need to have common sense and follow these basic tips that cover the 5 most common cases when the subject is men’s watch:
Case 1 – Watches leather dial classic
The combination of leather strap with the dial classic generates parts elegant and discreet, ideal to be used with suits, costumes and tuxedos. At weddings, or any type of formal event, the preference is for the bracelet in black (with matching belt and shoe, of course), already in the work of brown strap are very well accepted and are okay with costumes with navy blue, beige, light gray or brown, for example.
Complications such as moon phases, chronograph, perpetual calendar, etc. are welcome, provided that they do not let the display very cluttered.
See an example below.
Case 2 – Watches of strap metal dial classic
Are very used to the desktop, the bracelet leaves the model more versatile, allowing the combination with more casual clothing, but still has that elegant appeal with a touch of bold, brought by the metal, so use with something more serious. Are not considered ideal, to keep up the tuxedos or suits in the formal events, although a lot of people ignore this rule, especially when dealing with classical models and established brands like Rolex and Omega.
Here are two examples to look for work:
Very colorful for you? This other goes in the opposite direction and invests in the “total black”…
Case 3 – Watches leather strap or metal dial sports
The display can completely change the style of a watch, be it leather strap or metal. The sporty design and more aggressive cai as well in looks casual, since the well-behaved with a blazer and shirt, to the more funky, with a shirt and leather jacket, for example.
Here’s an example:
Watches with rubber strap or silicone
These are clearly sporting the most suitable to go with a polo or plaid shirt overlapped by a parka chinos or a jacket of sweatshirt with t-shirt. Some models even manage to compose a look more preppy, but they are rare, the vast majority seems to accessory sportsman himself, especially not with the digital display.
Of this type we have some models that are more cool, such as the Gucci digital (above, left), the super sports like the G-Shock from Casio (last right).
Here’s an example:
Watches with bracelet plastic or canvas color
Colorful and modern, the watches masculine or unisex strap with nylon, canvas, plastic, or silicone to make the party of those who likes a visual cool, so fit in some completely random, mainly geared for moments of leisure and relaxation. Are friends of faded jeans, t-shirts with prints that pop, sneakers and bold accessories and the time, such as bracelets and necklaces.
In this category enter the models in the Swatch, Timex and a few copies of the Lacoste and Adidas.
Here’s an example:
Facing a another way we could classify according to the type of clothes or your purpose:
- Work formal events and black-tie, black-tie optional or semi-formal = black leather strap with dial classic;
- Work semi-formal or casual, elegant = steel bracelet with dial classic;
- Work casual, leisure, clubs = steel bracelet, or leather with the dial sports bold;
- Leisure, sport and outdoor tour = silicone bracelet or rubber;
- Tour, meetings, concerts, the beach = colored bracelet, nylon, canvas or plastic.
The watches the more formal of the list should be avoided with clothing that is too casual, after all it has no much sense to use shorts and t-shirt with a classic watch with a leather strap, on the other hand, anything below the classic with steel bracelet should not accompany a suit, it is not very advisable to wear a costume social holding a clock with the face of the academy in the wrist.
There are those who mix everything? Yes, there are people who can mix the styles and still make something cool, but most of the time this person takes care not to injure no dress code, particularly in the work and solemn events. If you are now beginning to venture out “in this area”, I would advise you to go easy.
