5 COMMON WATCH STYLE MISTAKES

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX THEM

We have all been there–James Dean worthy hair, a perfect suit, and a killer smile. And yet, something seems to be missing or slightly off your otherwise elegant and sophisticated style. What could it be? You wonder. Here are five common watch-style mistakes and how to fix them.

1. Missing In Action

Don’t let an ill-fitted suit jacket or shirt hide your favorite watch or other accessories. The Generation Series watches are designed to make a long-lasting and unforgettable impression – that’s if they can be seen in the first place.

The seam of a suit jacket should meet the corner of each shoulder comfortably. If the jacket is too short or too long it will pull at the fabric causing unwanted shoulder divots restricting its movement. Similarly, the jacket sleeve should show no more than half an inch of cuff. This properly showcases the dress shirt, watch and other accessories underneath.

 2. Mr. Mismatch 

There is more to great style then having the right clothes, shoes and accessories. If they happen to be ill fitted, not the right colour or a parade mismatched fabrics, it will not matter the investment made or the statement you’re trying make. Plain and simple–it’s a big fashion and style no-no.

Always opt for clothes, watches and other accessories that compliment you and your lifestyle. There is no harm in choosing bright and bold accessories like the Generations Twin Time Blue or the Generations Series Chrono Green. The trick however, is to offset them with muted colours and fabrics. It’s always best to play it safe when it counts especially in the style department

 3. Not The One For You

Similar to finding the perfect suit and shoes that compliment you and your signature style; finding the appropriate watch that fits your personality is also extremely important.

There is nothing worse than wearing, or trying to pull off, a style or accessory that you’re just not comfortable in–your confidence and self-esteem will take a nosedive. If you prefer your style to be understated, opt for the Generation Series Chrono Brown. Its deep brown and stainless steel aesthetic will give them the right impression without you having to say a word.

 

 

 4. Right Watch, Great Occasion

You are about to celebrate a successful meeting with a round of racketball and pints–the Amsterdam Chrono in Nautique Blue is a great option for a fun night out in the city with the guys.

If you gear towards more of a relaxed style out of the office opt for the Globetrotter Series Moon Phase in Black. Its black sunray dial and stainless steel design is the epitome of casual and relaxed cool.

5. Less Is More 

When getting ready for basically any occasion, always remember one simple rule–less is more. Over styling and accessorizing can be surprisingly easy. When choosing the right timepiece, consider a couple of things.

Most often, watches are designed to stand alone and make an impression–they are the accessory. Too many added extras like bracelets, rings, and necklaces will often take away from your style and the statement you’re trying to make. Keep your style light and simple. It can make a world of difference between setting the standard versus missing the style mark completely.
