  2. Matching Watches With Your Winter Clothes

    You know which sweaters go with your favorite jeans. You’ve chosen the perfect overcoat to match your work outfits, and have your eye on an amazing scarf. But have you thought about how your watch will fit into your winter wardrobe? Here are a few tips for matching watches with cold-weather clothing.  A Touch of Green and Gold Matching watches with your wardrobe isn’t rocket science. And green is a great color to mix into your winter wardrobe. Add a bit of boldness to your basic black ensemble with a deep-green coat. From your favorite jeans-and-sweater weekend wear to dress-casual outfits, a green scarf is a wonderful way to put some pizazz in an otherwise unremarkable look. And nothing goes better with green than gold watches. But you don’t need to spend a fortune to shine with gold. Armani Exchange has both the prestige and look of a top-name brand without the price tag. Their line of gold-plated watches can have you looking like a high-end watch aficionado without the cost. Tommy Hilfiger is another brand with men’s watches that look more prestigious than their price tags. Give the gold Luke Watch a gander. Of course, if you want to go with true luxury, a great gold watch for men and convention-defying women is the Rolex GMT-Master II. In yellow gold or 18-carat everose gold, this classic never goes out of style. View this post on Instagram Ja za chwilę wracam do pracy. Dziś piątek więc złożyło się kilka przyjazdów.

Evolved from their punk roots, Westwood’s watches span from simple-yet-elegant to bold and quirky. Promoted by Kendall Jenner, the Classic Petite Melrose from Daniel Wellington is a wonderful gold timepiece that’s beloved by the young and young in spirit. A Great Winter Look A current trend is mixing shades of browns for some sensational cold-weather outfits. On recent runways, we‘ve seen an outpouring of brown winter wear. From Fendi’s double F-clad worker jackets to deep-brown blazers, bomber jackets and overcoats from Kim Jones. You’re bound to see the stylish keeping warm with brown Mac coats and dark-brown corduroy jackets. But don’t make the mistake of accessorizing with an all-black watch. Better to sport complementing shades of brown leather with your timepiece.

A relative newcomer to the watch scene, Alpina has some attractive watches that lend themselves to brown leather straps. Consider the Startimer Pilot with a white matte dial. The Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope has clean and simple lines that mesh well with the natural vibe of brown ensembles. The Braun BN0021 is another understated gem that feels at once basic and sophisticated — perfect to match the upscale-yet-downplayed look of your layered brown outfit. Complement Camel With Silver While technically in the brown category, camel coats are not always best worn with multi-brown outfits. The popular and versatile overcoats are better matched with neutral tones and the odd dash of color. The most-fitting watch to match with camel is silver. A wonderful men‘s silver watch that won’t contrast with the soft camel tone is the Tissot Luxury Automatic in stainless steel. Camel also lends itself to mixing in a bit of black and leaves you free to wear watches like the TAG Heuer Men’s Stainless Steel Watch. The classic silver-and-black timepiece will never go out of style. View this post on Instagram Love the details on this watch. Such a good movement too!

Check out polished-steel models with white ceramic accents that exude a soft side without losing any of the brand’s famed boldness. Similar to TAG Heuer, the Tissot Dressport is a chronograph often worn by women that lends itself to complementing camel. Pair Your Orange Wear With Black Orange is all over winter streetwear this season. From jackets, sweaters, shoes and even pants, the Halloween hue makes for a bold wardrobe choice. Of course, it’s best to mix in some offsetting tones such as charcoal to avoid looking like a pumpkin. Black-on-black watches are the best choice for your orange outings. All-black beauties for men and women include the Braun BN0171, with a black case and black dial featuring hints of gray on hour markers. A bit of yellow and white on the hands makes the midnight motif all the more striking. Debuting in 1976, the TAG Heuer Monza was one of the first all-black watches and today’s incarnations continue the deliciously dark tradition. The Tudor Black Bay Dark has bold red accents on the bezel of the otherwise all-black PVD-coated watch. View this post on Instagram H I G H – T E C H ?

A beaded bezel is a big attraction on the all-black Breitling Navitimer 8. Sporty Looks Back in Style Fashion trends regenerate and you’ll see lots of style from the 90s on the street this winter. Sporty looks that echo workout wear are again in vogue with two-piece shell suits, tracksuits and bucket hats. Nature-ready sports gear also abounds with Giorgio Armani’s backpacks and hiking boots from Bally and Moncler. These sporty looks are the perfect opportunity to rotate in your favorite smartwatch. Without throwing shade on the iWatch, there are a lot of new smartwatches that don’t sacrifice style for function. Skagen’s Falster 2 Smart Watch positively oozes minimalist style. The Touchscreen Smartwatch from Emporio Armani captures the brand’s iconic statement-making designs.  Movado stays sleek with its Connect Smart Watch, while Breitling goes big with its titanium Exospace B55. Game of Thrones constantly reminds us that “Winter is Coming.” As you are breaking out your best sweaters and shopping for that perfect coat, don’t forget that a watch is an integral part of your winter wardrobe.

  4. Bling It On! Top Luxury Watches of Hip-Hop Stars

    Wherever you find hip-hop stars you’ll encounter some of the world’s top luxury watches. From classic gold timepieces to diamond-encrusted wonders, lets take a look at high-end watches of hip-hop stars. Kanye West Rolls With Rolex You’ll probably see a Rolex on the wrist of Kanye West. Kanye is often wearing a now-discontinued Submariner 16613. The two-tone stainless steel timepiece with an iridescent dial has been hard to get a hold of since its discontinuation. Unlike its replacement, the 11613 model, Kayne’s watch has slim hands, small markers, and narrow case lugs. You can also see West wearing a custom all-black Rolex Submariner and he was captured on an episode of Keeping up With the Kardashians sporting a gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date.   Pharrell Prefers Richard Mille He’s a producer, rapper, artist, and designer — just to name a few of Pharrell‘s job descriptions! Of course, his watches are equally eclectic and he often chooses to wear an iconoclastic Richard Mille. Pharrell was seen on the Golden Globes red carpet wearing a Richard Mille RM-031, one of only ten of the futuristic timepieces that were made. With a price tag north of $50,000, the RM-031 departs from Mille’s trademark tonneau and barrel-shaped designs with a rounded case. However, it shares the same Formula One-inspired elements such as lightweight steel accents, intricate tourbillon movement, and direct-impulse escapement. Nas and His Many Rolexes While his lyrics have referenced a litany of luxury watches including Hublot, Panerai and Audemars Piguet, hip-hop icon Nas is a die-hard Rolex man. Over the years we’ve seen him wearing three models in the President series, including a classic yellow gold Day-Date II with a champagne dial and a vintage Day-Date with a coral dial that was all the rage in the 1970s. Nas has also been a fan of two different yellow gold Sky Dwellers and a stainless steel Submariner with a black bezel and a black dial. DJ Khaled Does Patek Philippe DJ Khaled goes big with just about everything, so naturally the same applies to what he wears on his wrist. You’d be well advised to put on a pair of sunglasses before looking at his diamond-studded Patek Philippe Nautilus. The Nautilus comes with a hefty price tag with its rounded octagon bezel and unique porthole case. Available in rose gold, white gold, steel, and two-tone variations, the exquisite sports watch has been a companion to active and upscale lifestyles since its debut in 1975.  Nicki Minaj Defies Convention With Rolex Boldness has been a theme for Nicki Minaj since she entered the hip-hop scene. It’s no wonder she eschews tradition and dons a men’s classic Rolex Day-Date in the video for “Beez in the Trap.” Dubbed the President watch, the timeless model, which comes in platinum or 18-carat gold, has been a staple of style since its debut in 1956. Of course, Minaj also rotates modern timepieces and diamond-encrusted watches into her forward fashion. Rick Ross Goes Glitzy With Audemars Piguet What‘s “frosted gold” you ask? You can find the dazzling design on the wrist of Rick Ross. His Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has a white gold frosting finish, created by a process called the Florentine Technique, which punches small depressions into the gold to create a carpet of facets that makes the surface shimmer. The Frosted Gold version is just one of the many incarnations the Royal Oak has seen over the years since it first hit the watch scene in 1971. Ross is also an owner of a Patek Philippe Calatrava. While not cheap, you can get a classic Calatrava with a yellow gold bezel and black alligator strap for considerably less than a frosted Royal Oak. Birdman is all About the Diamonds If you spot Birdman chances are you can get a glimpse of his Hublot King Power Split Second Gold Pave. Actually, 248 big differences — diamonds! Beyond its overload of jewels, the King Power has an 18-carat gold case. If that’s not enough, it also has a black carbon dial with rose gold markers. But the King Gold isn’t the most extravagant watch in Birdman’s collection. That distinction goes to his diamond-encrusted Chopard. Only two of the shockingly bejeweled timepieces were made. Elton John owns the second absurdly ostentatious watch with a dollar-sign design in diamonds. They each shelled out about 1.5 million dollars to own the extravagant pieces. Jay-Z Breaks the Bank With Beyoncé Step aside Elton John and Birdman, Jay-Z has got you beat when it comes to diamond-encrusted watches. His wife Beyoncé gave him one of the most-expensive Hublot has ever produced for his 43rd birthday. From a diamond face to bezel and bracelet, it has a value of around 5 million dollars. Jay-Z has given shout-outs to Hublot with lyrics on the tracks “Picasso Baby” and “Nickels and Dimes.” But his love of luxury watches began well before his Hublot days with Beyoncé. In the 1990s, Jay-Z came to fame sporting a platinum Rolex Day-Date and over the years has amassed a collection. The collection includes Rolex Sky-Dwellers as well as models from Audemars Piguet and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Drake Goes With Vintage Rolexes Noted for his fashion as well as rapping, Drake has a soft spot for traditional Rolex watches. One of the more unique watches in his collection is a Rolex Oyster Quartz dating to the 1970s. But he’s most often seen wearing other classic models from the Rolex line, including a Rolex Yacht-Master II, GMT-Master II and Sky-Dweller. How to explain the inseparable fusion of hip-hop and luxury watches? Perhaps rapper Meek Mills sums it up best in the intro to the album “Dreams and Nightmares”: “There was something bout that Rollie when it first touched my wrist…Had me feeling like that dope boy when he first touched that brick.”

  5. Watch Fashion: Tom Ford’s First Watch

    The big news in the watch world right now is that Tom Ford has released their first watch. The natural question for any timepiece or fashion enthusiast to ask is if it is worth buying. Below, we introduce the Tom Ford brand and give our thoughts on their new watch. Company History The mastermind behind this prestigious brand is a modern renaissance man, given that he has had a massively successful career in both film and fashion. After working at Gucci and Saint Laurent in his early days, he started his own company. He named that company after himself, Tom Ford. With the help of the experience he amassed at those established luxury brands, his new company took off quickly and became one of the most recognizable names on the planet. View this post on Instagram “I became a fashion designer because I wanted to make men and women feel more beautiful and to empower them with a feeling of confidence. A feeling of knowing that they looked their best and could then present their best selves to the world.” – Tom Ford #TOMFORD #TOMFORDSS19 #NYFW A post shared by TOM FORD (@tomford) on Sep 11, 2018 at 11:35am PDT Their Place in the Fashion World Currently, Tom Ford is one of the premier names in the luxury fashion space. Not only have they developed a reputation in fashion circles, but their notoriety has leaked into popular culture. Many movies, television shows and songs feature a mention of Tom Ford, further adding to its legacy. Though there are many brands in this space, Tom Ford has established themselves as one of the few that fashion enthusiasts need to pay attention to. View this post on Instagram A bold look from the TOM FORD SS19 Runway. #TOMFORD #TOMFORDSS19 #NYFW A post shared by TOM FORD (@tomford) on Sep 7, 2018 at 12:00pm PDT The Watch Now, onto the Tom Ford 001 watch. The first thing you should know is that Tom Ford is not making a massive play into the watch market. That means that they have not revealed many different models, instead opting for just one. It does come with a variety of metal colors, straps, and dial colors, but at the moment, your options are limited. The following points are the most important things to know about this new watch. Style – If you like to put watches into categories, this piece would likely fall into the “dress” style. It is minimalistic, somewhat small and built to convey classiness over anything else. One thing to note is that it is exclusively square shaped, so if you prefer round watches, this piece may not be your best choice. The design of the watch is not at all “busy,” instead featuring a simple design and subtle branding. Overall, this piece is a classic, minimalistic, square dress watch. Origin – One thing that Tom Ford emphasizes in their branding is that these watches are Swiss made. As many of you know, Switzerland is the world capital of luxury watches, so having that craftsmanship goes a long way. They also advertise that their leather straps come from Italy and France, which both have a reputation for exceptional leather production. Price – Though each timepiece looks roughly the same, its variants have prices ranging from $2,190 to $9,900. The differences in cost primarily stem from the materials used in them, which we detail in the next section. Materials – One thing that is roughly the same about each watch is their leather straps. They come in various colors and style, but each is made from genuine leather. The primary aspect that separates them is the material of the case. Options are classic stainless steel or 18K gold. Movement – Unlike most watches in this price range, this piece features quartz movement. What makes this questionable is that almost every other watch above $1,000 has a mechanical movement. This means that the inside of the timepiece is a complex machine carrying out the process of telling the time. The movement of these watches is one of their top selling points. On the other hand, quartz movements are generally used on affordable watches and this is the movement Tom Ford chose to use. This leads us to believe that they are relying on brand reputation and aesthetics, rather than fully on their craftsmanship. While we cannot tell you what to do with your money, we have provided some guidance based on what we know about this watch. The first thing you should do is go back to your budget and see what is the best option for you. If you feel like splurging – then by all means. But if not, maybe put this in your bookmark for a later time. Every watch buyer is different and you might decide that you don’t mind much about the inside of your watch. Instead, you can focus on the aesthetics and brand appeal. If you like the small size, square shape, minimalist vibe, and brand behind this watch, feel free to go ahead with a purchase. Ultimately, your decision to buy comes down to your priorities. What matters most to you? Whenever a big name company comes out with a new product, it is worth taking a look. Such is the case with Tom Ford and their new watch. This watch could be an excellent pick for fans of the brand. Whatever decision you make, you can now make it with confidence.

  6. Matching Your Watch with Your Summer Clothes

    Summer is nearly here! The weather is feeling great, the sky is getting clear and our summer clothes are coming out of the closet as the season approaches. Even though it’s summer, you still have to keep track of time. Here are some tips to help you match your fresh summer fits with your wrist accessory. Begin With the Belt and Shoes Yes, there will be times when you go without a belt (say dresses or overall outings). But on most other occasions you should build the belt and watch as one center-based element, conjoined style cousins if you will. You’ll also almost always wear shoes and they should also get early consideration when choosing the day’s watch.   Start with color basics. Black watch band, black belt, black shoes — it’s a solid trio you can build a lot of fashion around. It’s hard to fail with a classic Casio G-Shock, opting for an all-black GA 100 for a bold adventurous presentation that’s resistant up to 600 feet of water. Or consider strapping on a TAG Heuer skeleton in all-black with visible movement to draw the eye and a silicon band that says you’re ready for summer action. What can you do with all of this black? View this post on Instagram Vancouver’s Destination store for Tag Heuer watches since 1975. #tagheuervancouver A post shared by Time & Gold Watches Vancouver (@timegoldwatches_ca) on Nov 29, 2018 at 2:01pm PST Mellow Summer Days in Monochrome Black is a perfect match for summer monochrome. It’s a simple enough principle and there are a ton of varieties. From a flowing grey summer dress for women to men donning earth-tone linen, black blends seamlessly with monochrome outfits. So combo up with black-and-white pattern pieces, shades of gray in jeans and t-shirts and summer-white ensembles to mix in with your best all-black watch.    Is khaki just for fall? The deep greens of autumn are for ushering in winter winds and it’s best to keep them for the fall. But lightweight khaki shirts, tailored trousers and light skirts are solid go-to looks in the summer stylebook and go great with a luxury black watch. Something for Summer Events A relaxed summer doesn’t mean months of slogging along in flip-flops. There are going to be times when you need impressive dress. But you don’t want to go too stuffy in the warmer months. Equally at home at a formal event or weekend brunch, the Longines Heritage line honors designs from the early 1900s with a classic rounded case and Breguet hands in solid 18 carat rose gold. A rich brown alligator strap and you’re ready for nearly anywhere that feels a fresh summer breeze. Another great dress watch that has equal ease at a food festival is the NOMOS Tangente, with blue hands cutting across a dial of white silver in a round stainless steel case that pairs well on dress straps and sporty nylon. Go from a lightweight grey suit at the office to a casual night in white by the waterfront.   Four Watch Types for Summer When they’re at their best, summer ensembles fall into the “smart casual” and “casual” fashion buckets. That’s everything from a pair of cropped chinos and a short-sleeved shirt to sundresses and to a blazer and shorts if you are bold enough to rock the look. Summer wear often takes us to pilot, racing, dive and field watches. 1: Pilot Watches Setting yourself up with a pilot watch for summer days can take you to the gorgeous IWC Big Pilot’s Watch, a no-nonsense high-design piece in stainless steel with a black calfskin strap that is easy to pair with most smart-casual outfits. A Zenith Pilot Type 20 GMT has classic charm almost to a fault as it honors the traditional watches aviators first used to guide flights. View this post on Instagram Some rare IWC chronos ? #watchcollector #watchlover #iwc150 #watchoftheday #iwc #iwcwatches #iwcwatch #iwc시계 #watch #iwcbigpilot #watches #iwcschaffhausen #iwcpilot #iwcc #watchesofinstagram #watchporn #watchfam #chronograph #wristclassics #follow #like #followme #chrono #hodinkee #instawatch #watchfam A post shared by WRISTCLASSICS (@wristclassics) on Mar 28, 2019 at 3:57am PDT 2: Racing Watches Race-inspired watches just call out to hit your wrist on summer outings. Think of a TAG Heuer Formula 1 on a NATO strap that’s perfect for shorts at a garden party or catching a flight to a balmy isle. Or take a throwback tour with Tudor to revisit one of their beloved drivers’ watches. Inspired by a design from the 50s, the Black Bay Automatic Black Dial is also augmented with the iconic snowflake hands from Tudor’s late-60s efforts.

If you’re looking for something gorgeous and have the cash to spare, there’s the Breitling Superocean chronometers. Go for a sporty model such as the Superocean Automatic 46 Blacksteel with a DLC-coated case, black dial and rubber strap that looks amazing with nice workout wear. For a dressier look that you can pair with a summer suit or neutral tones on a Friday night, there’s Breitling’s Superocean Automatic with a stainless steel case and steel link bracelet.   View this post on Instagram My choice ?? A post shared by Jazzy (@c_j_nas) on Apr 2, 2019 at 11:35am PDT 4: Field Watches Field watches are fun because they often take you into vintage territory. And the good vintage territory that looks amazing with your favorite jeans and not the retro that belongs in a royal parlor. While many lean to military design, the field watch is by no means for men only. The Hamilton Khaki Field Watch is a great example of a sturdy military-style watch that dresses up on a black or brown calfskin strap. With a 38mm case, it’s on the small side and not a bulky piece that’s bound to garner great attention. The basic black-and-white with stainless steel works well with fashion from suits to jeans. It’s also back to black as we’re talking about the Runwell from Shinola. With a black leather contrast-stitch strap, 47mm case and a black dial under a double curve sapphire crystal, this watch will get noticed. The flagship watch from the Detroit-based watchmakers, the Runwell pairs well with just about anything that basic black complements. View this post on Instagram Help me choose. Another option is the Shinola Runwell 41mm Black Dial ($550, budget is currently $1,000). Shinola was started by Tom Kartsotis, who also co-founded Fossil. I love the design of these watches. They are working to do more in-house and have now delivered their first mechanical watch (not this one). I love the simplicity of the dial, while not being plain. I think the orange is a very nice accent as well. #shinola #shinolawatches #runwell #shinolarunwell #americanwatches #affordablewatches #affordablewatch #blackdial #blackdialwatches A post shared by Which Watch Should I Buy? (@which.watch.should.i.buy) on Dec 20, 2018 at 12:14am PST So consider your collection and think about what you want on your wrist this summer. Will you be taking a dive watch to the beach, a field watch on a nature walk or will a dress piece accompany you to a summer wedding? However you choose, celebrating summer with a fine watch is a privilege to enjoy and cherish as you create new warm-weather memories.
