Style: The Wristwatch

Every man should keep up with the time as much as they keep up with their style.  It is for this reason we are spotlighting the wristwatch, an essential element to every man’s outfit.  Watches come in all kinds of colors, styles, and materials, and for this we can understand why it might be confusing on which direction to take when determining the right watch to wear.  Think of a watch as a personal identifier, a name badge, a business card… it is the one of the important elements of your outfit that should define you best and help to create a lasting impression on those you meet.               


While the wristwatch is a common style element and expeditious way to tell time, it wasn’t always so.  During World War 1, soldiers found the common pocket watch to be impractical and thus created a wristwatch.  Upon returning home, the men continued to wear their watches and soon brought popularity to the wristwatch we enjoy today.
