Just as you have an outfit for every occasion, so too should you have a timepiece for the day that’s in it. Whether you’re out shopping with your other half, running a marathon, or in a business meeting, your watch needs to not only match your outfit but also to meet your needs. So we’ve made a list of our top three watches that will cover any occasion.
If you’re looking for a man’s watch, then this is it. It’s big, it’s strong, and it’s about as manly a casual watch as you’ll find on the market. Sure, it has a bit of a diver’s/sporty watch look but as far as we’re concerned that just adds to the character of the watch. You could go all out and get something in a dayglow yellow, but we love the fact that this watch can be worn with anything. Its silicone strap is a big bonus too for those of us that can’t handle metal straps day in day out. And at only $198, it’s surprisingly affordable for such a strong and durable watch.
We all should be spending a bit more time out on the track or at least in the gym and when we do then this is the watch we should be wearing. The Forerunner does everything your standard sports watch does and then some more. Heart rate monitor? Yep. Live tracking and social media sharing? That too. In fact, the only thing it won’t do is massage your feet after a long run, but then, who would? It’s a $330 fitness addict’s dream, and it looks pretty smart too.
And last but by no means least we come to the most important of all timepieces and the one that is required to be the most stylish, the dress watch. When suited up for a formal occasion in your custom tailored suit, it’s hardly likely that you’ll be wearing that old Casio mum bought you back in your teens. But it should be just as unlikely for you to wear a casual or sports watch no matter how smart they are. No sir, the world of the suited man requires a simple yet statement making wrist watch such as the latest from Patek Philippe. It is elegance with a wristband and will go nicely with any colour of suit. And so it should as it comes with a whopping price tag of $118,600.
If that Patek Philippe watch is on your watch list (that was a pun that just had to be made) then you’ll no doubt be looking for a quality bespoke suitto go with it. And with our gift for styling, we at Montagio are sure that we can find the perfect look to go with your new formal timepiece.
Montagio did a great job on wedding suits for me and my two groomsmen. Bally provided us with fantastic service and the result was definitely superior to an off-the-rack option... more »
