  2. Matching Watches With Your Winter Clothes

    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 matching watches will fit into your winter wardrobe? Here are a few tips for matching watches with cold-weather clothing.  Matching Watches, 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. For women, Vivienne Westwood has some striking gold watches in their Bow and Bloomsbury lines. 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. For men and women, a great watch that blends well with brown is the Movado Edge, with a silver-hued aluminum dial and brown looped leather strap. 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. A great camel-matching TAG Heuer for women is the Formula 1. 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. Tudor has a Black Bay for women with a NATO fabric strap and an oversized snowflake hour hand. A beaded bezel is a big attraction on the all-black Breitling Navitimer 8. Matching Watches 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.

  3. Watch Fashion: Tom Ford’s First Watch

    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. Source from Official Website  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. Source from Official WebsiteMaterials – 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. Source from Official WebsiteEvery 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.
